As I understand you want to hide the Z drive on your HP computer. Don't worry as I have a few steps to help you get through this concern,
To provide you with an accurate solution, I'll need a few more details:
Do you get any error message on the computer screen?

In the meantime, Z drive is the network drive and not the recovery partition.
If you are getting boot config data error after the recent upgrade to windows 10 failed,
Here are a few things you can try, depending on the error code you receive. See which applies to your system and carry them out:
5. On UEFI supported systems, you may try the following. Type the following two commands one after the other and hit Enter.
You now have to select the volume that is labeled ESP. ESP or EFI System Partition is a partition on a hard disk or solid-state drive which adheres to UEFI or Unified Extensible Firmware Interface. In my case, it is Volume 2.
Select volume 2
Now we need to assign a letter to it. Let's select ‘z’.
Now exit diskpart by using the following command.
Next type the following command and hit Enter:
bcdboot C:\windows /s z: /f UEFI
/f when used with the /s command, specifies the firmware type of the target system partition, and the options are – BIOS, UEFI and ALL. We used UEFI to generate boot files for UEFI supported systems.
Restart your computer and it should resolve the issue,
Let me know if those steps worked for you.
