Reinstalling windows 10

HP Recommended
omen laptop
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

I am running HP Recovery manager, create recovery media.

How do I do a clean installation of windows 10? how do I use the USB recovery media? Is the E drive (recovery) a form of partition? 

A guidance or step by step instruction would be appreciated.

Thanks

This pretty much tells the whole story:

Read through this and if you still have questions post back. 

 

With Windows 10 you can always rest assured the installation files are available from Microsoft as a bootable DVD or thumb drive image you can download for free even if somehow the HP recovery manager fails. But I encourage you to make an HP recovery thumb drive and store it away where you can always find it just in case you want to reinstall. The Omen has a lot of extra system software for the lighting and such that is not easy to find on this website so you are best off with a factory image.
