Hi:

 

You can't get W7 disks anymore.

 

What you can do is this:

 

You can buy a W7 recovery kit from this vendor and reinstall W7. 

 

You will lose all data currently on the hard drive using recovery media.

 

Computer Surgeons - Recovery Kit 680046-001 For HP Pavilion Notebook PC Model Number g6t-1d00

 

If you have access to another PC...

 

You can make a bootable W7 USB installation flash drive by downloading the W7 64-bit Home Premium ISO file from the link below.  The link will be good for 24 hours from the time of this reply.

 

https://download.microsoft.com/download/E/A/8/EA804D86-C3DF-4719-9966-6A66C9306598/7601.24214.180801... 

 

Use the Microsoft tool that I zipped up and attached below that you will need to transfer the ISO file to a USB flash drive so that it is bootable, or you can use the free Rufus utility to do that.

 

Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way

 

When you boot from the W7 installation media you created and get to the Install Now screen, on the bottom left side of that window, you will see a 'Repair this PC' option.

 

You can click on that and try the various repair options to fix your current Windows installation.

 

If you cannot repair, and you can still read all 25 characters of the W7 product key, you can use the installation media you created to reinstall W7.
