Doing a Recovery by pressing F11 immediately after powering on is usually a bit faster than booting from Recovery Media. If all goes smoothly it should be finished in about 1-2 hours.

If you bought a license from Microsoft, you can verify on their website, or call their support and get a download and key to restore your software. If you have the key, goto office.com and do a little reading. You should be able to download your version. Once installed, you can ever your key. Poof, your office is back.
