i can not hard reset my laptop

notebook 15-r029wm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

i want to hard reset my laptop bac to out of the box factory settings but everytime i try it with the f11 option it keeps asking for a disc to continue. laptop didnt come with a operating system disc. and if i try to fully reset it throught the options menu it doesnt do anything, all it does is say this will take a moment then that screen closes and nothing ever happens it takes me back to my desktop but never resets my computer.

Hello,

 

Your PC came with Windows 8.1.

 

The Win 10 upgrade killed the recovery partition.

 

You need an HP Recovery disc set .
