Clean install after Crypto virus

HP Recommended
Pavillion dv7-6178us
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Just need a download of the OS to reinstall on this system.  My Boss brought the machine in after failing to complete the task.   Using linux I have wipped the drive writting zeros and random characters multiple times so all data on the system is toast.  The drive has been wipped clean, microsoft is no help with an iso download and I don't have an old windows 7 home premium disk to use with the key present on the machine.

 

I don't want the HP bloatware, just need options to download the OS from HP so a clean install can be completed and this nighmare returned to my boss.
