    W10 recovery options.


    Got a HP 15-bw024na laptop for my mother, and want to do a recovery installing Windows only without all the third party crap. I'll lose AMD settings and AMD software apps in the process. I'm assuming this couldn't possibly wreck the machine?

    Hi.
    You might want to backup the drivers on the machine first, then download a W10 ISO from MS for the install.

    Download Windows 10 ISO File Windows 10 Tutorials

    Skip inputting a key (if it asks for one).
    Check on the HP website for that system, and make sure there are no BIOS updates waiting for it too.
    You may find that some drivers specific to HP will be required in the end. Otherwise you should be good.

    Sound advice, sir. I just wonder why a recovery method offered on the HP machine could potentially screw it up. Then again I don't use OEM myself.

    Of course, you can always use the HP recovery partition to take the system back to day 1. But, you'll get all the bloatware that came with it too.

    I had no problems doing this on my lil 11inch HP. I deleted all partitions then installed fresh from the win10 iso download from Microsoft.
