Hi,


Unfortunately no.

HP Recovery media is not available for this very very old notebook from HP

It is not available from reputable 3rd party sellers​ like computersurgeons or restoredisks

Windows 7 Starter edition is not offered by Microsoft as ISO image. So you're not in a situation to do clean installation in the present scenario.

Hi, @DmitriyG :

 

If you can still read all 25 characters of the W7 Starter product key on your notebook's case, you can make your own plain W7 installation media to reinstall W7.

 

This site claims to have genuine, unadulterated W7 ISO files for download...

 

https://www.heidoc.net/joomla/technology-science/microsoft/67-microsoft-windows-iso-download-tool

 

Click on the link labeled Windows ISO Downloader.exe

 

You can use either the:

 

 Win 7 Starter SP1 or the (Retail version, but the  OEM key on your PC's case will work with it)

 

 Win 7 Starter SP1 COEM (This version would be for what HP would have used--System Builder)

 

N is for European Union (EU) countries.

 

K is for South Korean markets.

 

Then you can use this tool to transfer the file to a 4 GB USB flash drive or a DVD.

You're very welcome visruth.

 

If you run the tool, you will see that it generates a download for every version of W7 made, including Basic and Starter.

Yes Paul.

In the past, I had read from various Microsoft and non-Microsoft forums that Starter edition was not even released for download as ISO in the first place.

But now it's clear.
