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?
Solved! Go to Solution.

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.

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.
