Hi :welcome: to BleepingComputer


If you don't have the Windows 8.1 install DVD download it from Microsoft https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows8 you must choose the same Edition that you had installed before.


If the original operating system provided by HP was Windows 8.1 you can skip the Windows key prompt during install and let windows activate automatically latter when the system get  access to the Internet.
