Well, I'll try to do with bootable USB. I found a topic on hp where somebody has to try with an USB.
I have just to change the USB port I use often.

Sadly, that probably means that the recovery partition itself has an error in it.

Or at least that's what I get from

Error Code 0xEFFFFF08 is an HP Error Code (not a Microsoft Error Code).  It, simply, means that you have to use a different USB port on your computer!  Using the Recovery Manager requires that you use a particular USB port on your computer.  Try the different
USB ports on your computer.  HP recommends starting with a USB port on the LEFT SIDE!

If your laptop has a sticker on it with the W8.1 serial number, you can follow post #2 in that URL and download a legal copy of W8.1 for you to install to a USB and then try a reinstall.  Unfortunately, the next step is to download the HP drivers for your laptop and install them as well.

I had sticker for Vista. No sticker for W8 (nor the W10).

I'll try the left side of computer. I can't make a mistake, I have only 1 port at the left  :(ROFLMAO:

I don't believe she's using a USB for this.  She was trying to use the recovery partition on the hard disk.

Yes, I removed the USB (bootable windows) just before to start, like they asked. This time, USB is on the computer. I'll see in 30 minutes maybe.
It seems a lot of people have this error. I even found a woman with an issue on a laptop of 26 months... same age than mine.
The difference with me, it's she made at the beginning a key with everything of her system, to be her "recovery D", if the HP recovery in her laptop had an issue. And guess what? Even her USB couldn't do the job  :coffee3:
Of course, moderator of HP said her she could always pay to obtain their recovery disks  :coffee3:

I was showing my inexperience here.  Apparently, after Windows 7, the serial number for machines is stored in the "BIOS".  So, it MIGHT work to get the generic Windows 8.1 installer from Microsoft, put it on a USB stick and do the installation without having to find a key.
