Can I (re)upprade my HP computer from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 after Factory Image Restore?

I have an HP computer that was running Windows 8.1.

When Microsoft provided the offer (a year or two ago) to do a free upgrade to Windows 10, I when ahead and installed it.

A few days ago, my computer stopped working, probably after a Windows update, and would never boot into Windows 10 again.

I received System Recovery media from HP, and did a factory reset.

Now, windows 8.1 is back on my computer.

My question is, do I need to purchase Windows 10, or can I do a free upgrade again?

No purchase needed. Simply install win10 clean and it will activate like magic.
You do not even need to enter a key but you can skip that.
