When clients bring us a PCs/Laptops with a defective hard drive or the image is corrupt.
We would like to use the numbers on the bottom. This way we can give the client exactly what they had. The issue is when the image is corrupt or missing. What to do. Of course we can have them purchase a new copy of Windows. But they do own it.

We have called HP and haven't had much lick getting replacement CDS/DVDs

Dell provides a site with the ISOs . Does HP have a legal legitimate site that we can download the version from?

We are also OK calling HP or MS to reactivate the code if needed.

It has been a while and quite probably depends on which version you need to install but I seem to recall that you may be able to install with the dell image you have and use the HP key.

Ordering a recovery kit from HP in the United States and Canada

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07143&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en

If you cannot create a recovery solution, you might be able to order a recovery kit from HP - either on discs or a USB device. HP maintains an inventory of replacement kits for several years after the product has been released. However, because of software licensing restrictions, HP is only able to provide recovery kits for a limited time.
If you are in the United States or Canada, use the following steps to order a recovery kit if one is available:
Find the serial number for your computer and write the number down on a piece of paper. The serial number is located on a service tag label adhered the case of the computer. For some notebook models sold in 2010 or later, you need to remove the battery or open an access hatch on the bottom of the notebook to see the service tag.
