I find it very suspicious that Windows 7 wasn't already running because the model came with Windows 7 pre-installed. Makes me suspect the computer was stolen and the hard drive replaced.
You can check to see if the hard drive has a recovery partition on it using the method spelled out in the manual which is linked below.
When the drive is active is there also activity on the wireless?
