Windows 7: Reinstalling refurbish version windows on laptop

Reinstalling refurbish version windows on laptop

Hello, I have a dell latitude d531 which I got refurbished and it has a windows 7 license with it.
According to the label it is a special license for refurbish computers, so when I tried to enter it on microsoft website to download a windows 7 ISO it didn't accepted it and prompted me to contact the manufacturer, because this license is special OEM or something like that.

So what I want to do is to format that laptop because I can't get in windows anymore and before I send it back for faulty HDD I need to make sure that it is not, in fact just a windows problem.
I don't have a disc with windows, only the license below the laptop and as I said MS site doesn't let me download an ISO to use.

Also it doesn't seem like there is any partition to boot from and reinstall.

What can I do? Is there a place where I can download a legit version and burn it on a disc?
