    It seems odd that the D: Recovery drive is occurring twice in the upper pane. Otherwise, what you say indicates you are good to proceed

    Don't know. I just noticed that. And Yes I am on it with him in the other post.

    In the other forum, I had been in discussion with the master. However, before his last replt I reset my system using the media I had created. It just finished that. I had a non activated windows 8.1 with no software that came with it. I have activated the window as I had infact extracted the key when upgrading it to 10. Now my Recovery drive is gone as well. Cant see it anymore.

    I didn't create any recovery drive. It is just in my system right now in the windows 10 as a OEM Recovery Partition. It contains all the data.

    On an HP laptop, which I have too, you can create a recovery drive one time, in lieu of factory restore discs. So, if you've never done it (it won't let you continue, if you have and forgot), try to do it now. In search, type 'Create a recovery drive'. Check 'backup system files' box, Next and follow prompts. If your orig Recovery Drive (usually D) has been untouched, you may be able to boot from the usb and do a factory restore from that.
    In the end this was the solution for my issue!

    "In the end this was the solution for my issue! "

    Glad that worked out. I have given a couple new HP's to family members. I always create the recovery drive on a usb and tell them to keep on hand because no one gives you recovery dvd's any more. The only time any of them used it was to repair a corrupt upgrade to a new SSD. So, it's better to have and not need than to need and not have. Cheers.
