I am trying to retore the default factory settings on my laptop.
But I cannot seem to locate where to do this. I've tried powering up the laptop and using the F1-F12 buttons but still cannot find the option to restore the laptop to its default factory build. I cannot see any option in the BIOS either.
Would be greatull for any advise / pointers 🙂

I have the same issue on my Elitebook 840 G1
No any reaction on F11 button on sturtup and no Recovery Manager App in OS.
How can I request Recovery Media to restore recovery partition without loosing my Win 8.1 Pro license?

Call the HP phone # listed in the document below for the country you live in to order recovery disks.
Have the serial number handy to give to the customer services rep.

I don't need to have disks to reinstall OS. I have OS from my MSDN subscription.
SN included in UEFI, so I have reinstalled OS manually already.
All i want is restore recovery partition to be sure that it will be helpful on demand.
It was destroyed with old HDD =(
So now I have fully working laptop, but without recovery partition.
Thank you for support!

OK, then you will have to live with it that situation, because the recovery partition is only put on the hard drive at the factory one time only, and the HP recovery disks only put the OS back on the C:\drive.
Once it is gone, it's gone.
