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...
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.
