    Once you installed the other OS, the recovery partition went away. With the two Recovery Partitions showing, the OS has no way of knowing which is which, because when you installed Linux, the Boot Manager for it took over and changed the MBR on your laptop.

    Shouldn't there be a "System Reserved" partition also?

    That is a big if, since Windows uses that for System restore if you have to roll back. When the OP installed the two different Linux Distro's, the Grub for each one messed things up. The only way for the OP to fix the problem is to do a clean install of Windows 10, by downloading the ISO from microsoft.com. The HP drivers for the Motherboard should be installed as default Microsoft, since the Motherboards are the same for all OEM's now.

    Thanks for your reply, bro67. As you can read at message #7, Kyhi gave me a possible solution to restore my system, but I can't find all files that he wrote in my recovery partitions.

    I would like to restore my system if I can only because of the warranty. I've read that HP gives assistance just if the laptop has the original system installed. Of course the easiest way could be to do a fresh install of Windows 10, and I will eventually do it if I can't manage to restore the original system.I would like to give the Kyhi solution a try first, anyway.

    The warranty does not cover the OS installation, it barely even covers the hardware. You will need at this point to just do a complete wipe of the drive and install just Windows 10. You drive partition table is beyond even being able to repair.

    Everyone thinks that just because something happened at the same time that Windows 10 was installed and should go out and get a new one or pay to have someone fix it. You are at the right place, but really need to look at it from the perspective of someone who has been doing this kind of stuff for forty years. In your case, you will need to treat the patient as if the only way to fix it is a format of the partition table when Windows 10 starts a new install.

    Hi Kyhi, first of all thank you for your patience.

    Cause I can't see files in Recovery partition from the file browser in Windows, I've tried first to clone the partition from Linux (creating a IMG image), and then to create a bootable USB using Win32 Disk Imager from Windows, but when I try to boot into the usb, the system tells me there's no bootable device available.

    Then, I tried to clone the partition to an USB drive using Minitool partition wizard (from Windows). I selected the the origin and destination drive and I chose to create a primary partition on USB drive (is it correct?), but when the process was close to 100% I received an error message and the process was aborted. My bad, I didn't write down the message I received.

    How do you think I should do to clone the recovery partition into the USB drive?
