This is a tough one. Looking initially for the Qualcom Atheros QCA9377 drivers. The one referenced elsewhere at https://www.atheros.cz/atheros-wireless-download.php?chipset=104&system=5 does not have a reference for the VEN_168C&DEV_0042&SUBSYS_E09A105B&REV_30 hardware of this laptop. Forcing the install of this driver give an error 10, whatever that is. Still no wireless devices found so that means it's not working.
I believe I found Ethernet drivers at http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=ob_152468_1
I believe I found USB 3 drivers at http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=ob_141715_1&swEnvOid=4053
This still leaves open in the Device Manager:
PCI Simple Communications Controller
Note also that I plugged in an external USB Network device and the system runs in a rapid loop of connecting and disconnecting this device.
Anyone else on this dark path?
