Solved!

Deleted partitions, Cant find a proper recovery disk.

Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I thought it would be a great idea to delete my partitions to start with a clean slate. It was a terrible idea. I cant find a non-bootlegged windows 7 home premium recovery disk. I tried my product code on the windows site to get an iso file. The site refered me to hp for recovery options because it was a pre-installed version. So I tried a bootleg recovery disk that let me get all the way to expanding windows files. but it was corrupted or missing. I tried a few iso files from the internet that I couldnt get to work either. My anti-virus hated it. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi:

 

You can order W7 recovery media for your PC from HP at the link below...

I know of one place that claims to provide unadulterated plain windows ISO files...click on the download tool link within the webpage (Under the Important Note May 2016 heading)
