If the machines have drives that are too small to do typical major updates to Windows 10 then the first order of business would be to upgrade your drives so that all the gyrations you're having to go through become unnecessary.
These things started out life as netbooks, and the hardware was mostly shipped out as Chromebooks. The stats I can find on the HP website show a 32 GB eMMC, making these devices quite unsuited for Windows 10 with the drives they came with.
For myself, unless finances absolutely preclude it, I would strongly consider ditching this hardware and investing in a couple of new, low end laptops that are built with the idea of running Windows 10 as their OS from the outset. No matter what you do with your existing hardware you will continue, over time, running into obstacle after obstacle after obstacle in maintaining them as Windows 10 machines. Getting something designed with Windows 10 in mind is a far better investment of your money, and your effort, than perpetually trying to fit the proverbial square peg in a round hole.
