How to download win 7 from the HP site

HP Recommended
Folio 13-1000EO
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hi,

Due to an total hard drive crash I have to change HDD and reload everything from the beginnin. I tried to download win 7 at the windows website but when I enter the product key I get a answer that I should contact the computer supplier in this case HP, "this is not OEM key". Does anyone know how to download windows 7 at the HP web-site?

You've got 2 options

 

(a) Order a Recovery set from HP

 

    https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/bph07143

 

(b) Download ISO file from Microsoft and install to your machine

Regards.

As you already found out MS will not let you download with your OEM key. HP very likely doesn't carry Win 7 Recovery Discs any longer. Use the iso downloader here then create a bootable usb flash drive or burn it to dvd:

I am in the same boat. Replaced the hard drive not knowing I would need the OS again. The first link from MS will not let me download the iso as it states that the product key is for preinstalled software and to contact the manufacturer. The 2nd link provided I am unsure as to what to do once I’m on that page. 😐

The second link you download and save the Windows-ISO-Downloader.exe.Then run it and choose your version-which is usually Windows 7 Home Premium COEM.
