    reinstall from Recovery


    Having a strange problem. I want to reinstall windows from my HP Recovery Drive. (I know I can download the Win 10 Media creator Tool, but I don't want to). Since I have no longer have the Recovery manager (and HP doesn't make it available), I used 7Zip to extract the WIM file. It has all the files except the boot files, which I added (boot, EFI, bootmgr, etc). When I start up the laptop and boot into the usb drive, it says that my device isn't recognized. But it is recognized in another laptop. My other option was to reinstall from within Windows and click on setup. Then the error code is 'autorun not found or corrupt'. Any tips or ideas? Thank you in advance for your help.

    :)
