Solved!

HP Stream 7 will not recover from reset

HP Recommended
HP Stream 7 Tablet 5709
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I went to Reset the tablet to factory settings deleting all of my files,etc. The tablet has a 32GB card in addition to the main drive.

 

During the recovery process a message appeared that the reset could not complete. A cancel button was presented which I pushed.

 

When I went to restart the tablet, the HP logo came up but nothing else. I shutdown and rebooted several times. The tablet is now a brick ....

 

I then connected the tablet to my PC. The Windows 10 PC does not recognize the tablet.

 

What can I do to restore at least the factory settings?

You could order a recovery USB from HP or do a fresh install of Windows 10 using the downloadable install image from Microsoft, instructions are here.

 

If you plugged the charging cable into a PC's USB port, the PC will not recognize the Stream tablet, that is normal.

Some feedback on the pages for downloading drivers on the HP website....The page and method for downloading is awkward.

Windows 10 is only gettibg bigger and it's not going to fit on a 32 gb drive.. My solution was to use the Xtra-PC flashdrive to convert the system to Linux. I have enhanced the Xtra-pc software to make it more user friendly.  The system runs great using Linux (the ubuntu flavor basically).   Forget Windows and run a version of Linux.

 You would have to remove the wifi card to add a disk drive and then you would have to add a usb wifi solution to solve that problem.  It's not worth it.  5/5/19

For the novice Linux User Linux Mint would probably be a better choice. You can download it to a flash drive or a dvd and use an external dvd drive or a flash drive to install the Linux software on the HP  disk drive.  You would still have room to install various applications similar to their Windows counterparts.  I am running my HP Stream 14  off of the Xtrapc flash drive currently.  I can choose to boot Linux or Windows 10 to use the system as a streaming device since there is no room to download anything.  I have the best of both worlds.
