Hi Deerek11,

Well, its really better to ask the manufacture but here are two great links that may be help you but again before trying any solution, please note down your system Windows Version & Original Service Pack version as well.

Very often, computer manufacturers ship your PC with a "rescue disc" or some sort of image that can restore your machine to its factory original state.  Sometimes it is on your hard drive as a hidden partition.  You should check on your machine and see if they installed software that offers options for reformatting, or if you have the original docs that came with the machine.

They almost always give you a way to "reset" the machine to a fresh OS install.

This is assuming you purchased it from a legitimate source, and that they had a legal version of Windows on there.

oem dis from microsoft can be downloaded but for that you have to login to your that user ID which you used to buy.
As I guss you have taken this windows from the manufacturer so you dont have it.

Best option is use any windows 7 disk and repair install you machine. (this will not require license)

if you only want to download the ISO and will use that then you can download it from the MS site as given below :

I think the download page suggested by pradeep08_81 offers Win 7 not Win 7 SP.  If you need the latter go here

mdrizwan has suggested an alternative site for SP1.

Whatever download you use, make sure it is the same in all respects as the version of Win 7 you now have installed.  You can use your existing product key.
