Windows 7: Lost my Win7 OS Recovery Disk, how do I use my coa serial with an ISO?

Lost my Win7 OS Recovery Disk, how do I use my coa serial with an ISO?

Is this even legal to do? I'm currently in India and cannot get the disk shipped here for obvious reasons. HP India does not have the recovery disks and suggested I contact HP USA. HP USA said that they cannot ship to India.

I know how to burn an iso and install the OS but the greater issue is how do I validate my windows my key mentioned on the windows coa sticker?

Has anybody done this? If yes how do I proceed? Thanks!

What is the licensed version on COA sticker? Do you have an ISO file yet?
