✔ Best Answer
If Windows was pre-installed by Dell then the certain answer is you either buy one from Microsoft or you see if Dell will sell you a restore disk.

If you purchased the Windows 7 disk in the first place then you can get an ISO download from Microsoft and use your own key:

It might or might not work with pre-installed Dell Windows key if you can talk MS around - see information here:

Another way, borrow a W7 CD & use your product key.

Put the install on an USB using Rufus & ei.cfg Removal Utility
