You can download an image and make a bootable usb drive - that should sort your problem to reinstall.

How to Activate Windows 7 by Phone
If you can't find an exact same version, you could use the info in this tutorial to create an "all versions" installer of any version Windows installer, to install using the same method I posted above.
