MY ORIGINAL WINDOWS CORRUPTED IN HP ELITEPAD HOW TO RECOVER IT RECOVERY PARTITION ALSO CORRUPTED

Hi:

 

The product specs for your tablet indicate that it originally came with W8 Pro 32 bit.

 

See if this works...

 

Install W8.1 by creating the Microsoft installation media, using another Windows PC, if yours is not working...You want W8.1 Pro 32 bit.

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows8ISO

 

Since your tablet only as a 32 GB eMMC drive, when you get to the part of the installation step where it asks 'Where do you want to install Windows?,' I recommend you delete all partitions, leaving just one partition of unallocated space.  Make sure the unallocated space is set to the max.

 

Only if you are asked to enter a product key during the installation process, use this generic key.

 

This is the generic key for W8.1 Pro:

 

XHQ8N-C3MCJ-RQXB6-WCHYG-C9WKB

 

If you had to enter the generic key, manually change the generic product key to the W8 key in your PC's BIOS in the PC settings menu.

 

After you get W8.1 installed, and you had to manually enter the W8.1 generic product key, you will need to run the free utility I zipped up and attached below, that will show you show the W8 product key in your PC's BIOS.

 

I have also zipped up and attached below, the Microsoft tool which hopefully will transfer the ISO file to a usb flash drive so it is bootable.

 

Then you can install the available W8.1 32 bit drivers and software from your PC's support page.
