Hi:

 

If you can read all 25 characters of the W7 Home Premium product key on your notebook's case, see if this works...

 

Here is the link to the W7 Home Premium 64 bit English US ISO file.

 

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 to transfer the ISO file to a USB flash drive or DVD, so that it is bootable, or you can use a different free utility such as Rufus.

 

Since the product key on your notebook is OEM and the ISO file is retail, you may have to use the automated Microsoft phone activation system to activate the installation.

 

I know this will work on notebooks from the USA and Canada, but I don't know if it will work on a PC from India.

 

I guess you have nothing to lose by trying it.
