    Hi John,
    Thank You for the detailed reply.
    I know that this notebook come with the windows 8.1 pro hardcoded OEM license into the bios and I'm locking for the discs or the usb image to completely restore as is from manufactured as Windows 8.1 pro out of the box.

    I get the impression that Siggy12 want this pc to be just as it was when it was new with all the HP stuff and fluff. The only way I know of to get original recovery disks/usb is either directly from HP (if available) or possibly off of some place like ebay (not recommended).
    Do you want to do this because you want to sell it or give it to somebody else so it will look oem as much as possible for the other involved party??

    You are right Joe !!! I want the PC like Manufactured did it.
    I have bought it but the HDD is empty cause is a refurbished machine and the hard drive was
    changed into SSD from the seller so it doesn't have the partition recovery anymore , I'm loocking for to restore it via HP Software.
    I know that I can buy this stuff on ebay or from HP but seems to not have the possibility
    anymore cause is a early 2014 machine.
    I'm looking for someone that have this pc and can help me sharing the recovery media or the USB image to restore it.

    Thanks John
    I already checked that solution and unfortunately aborted cause the pc is early 2014 unfortunately but is good idea for all the futur models,
    and Thank You for the useful information about how to reach the Product I.D. via bios.
    anyway I always hope regarding someone that could share the usb image or the
    recovery dvd (to be sincere I don't know if the restore dvd exists for this machine because it doesn't have the dvd reader)
