    You should have a recovery partition on your laptop unless you erased it when you upgraded to W10.

    Otherwise you'll need to download a W8.1 ISO and use the license number on your laptop sticker.

    Please note this will erase everything off you laptop so I recommend removing any personal items first.

    Any particular reason why you want to go back?

    Your hp should get still the original recovery partition, which can be activated during boot pressing F2 if I remember well, check Hp website.
    That mens your pc will be totally wiped and restored as first time out-of-the-box
