I'd recommend restoring to Win 8 using the built in recovery then upgrade to Win 10. I think you will like 10 a lot more than you do 8.

No it didn`t destroy your drive.

Can you go to another computer and create a Partition Wizard Boot CD ?

Bootable Partition Manger | MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable Edition

Then boot the HP Envy with that cd and post a clear picture of screen it shows (of course you`ll have to take a pic with a camera or phone)

It`ll look like this.
