HP Laptop - 15-r150sa (ENERGY STAR) - Possible to roll back to factory Windows with any disk?

HP Notebook - 15-r150sa (ENERG
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi

 

I have the HP Notebook - 15-r150sa (ENERGY STAR) laptop from brand new.

 

Was factory installed with Windows 8.1 I believe.

 

I have upgraded to Windows 10 64 bit, but I would like to go back to the original Windows that it was originally installed with if possible.

 

Please note, I bought this laptop from brand new from a reputable retailer in the UK, but it did not come with any installation disk or anything like that.

 

If I press F11 during start up, all of the reset/recovery options ask me to insert a disk which I dont have and wasn't supplied.  Also all of the options before asking for a disk only offered Windows 10 as a start point.

 

I cannot roll back to original windows as 30 days has passed, and there is no option to do anything else.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thank you.
