Hi:

 

The product specs for your model below, indicates it comes with W7 64 bit.

 

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

 

Win 7 Home Premium 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.

Then go to your notebook's support page to install the drivers and available software you need.

That should be fine to make the installation media from your Dell laptop.

You have to save the file to your PC and use that tool to put it on your USB flash drive.

 

The tool makes the USB flash drive bootable.

 

Just copying the file to a USB flash drive will not work at all.
