Thank you for posting in the HP Support forum. Welcome onboard!
This PC originally comes with Windows 10 Home edition - OEM original license supplied by HP.
So, if you install additional or different Windows, you need to provide your own license.
In cases like yours, the official procedure is to use HP Recovery media to restore back the computer (Windows, software, drivers, etc...) to factory default condition. This one will also activate your Windows.
You can contact HP support or local authorized HP partners to see if they can offer you original recovery media for this computer (a.k.a. recovery DVDs or USB).
