ISO of Windows 7 Starter in the version of factory of Acer.

Hi to everyone, I had a problem with my laptop Acer Aspire One AO531h-0Dk, the problem is that my hard drive died and now I can't use the computer, I bought a new hard drive, and I installed on the computer, but the Recovery that Acer provided to me was on the death hard drive, so now I can't reinstall again the OS, I know that I can install a fresh insatalation of Windows 7 Starter, but I prefer the original that provided Acer, I don't care about the bloatware, I just want the same Windows 7 Starter that I haved (if it is possible) with all the things that Acer added like for example the backgrounds and all the stuff. So my question is this.
Can Someone send to me a Windows 7 Starter ISO but with the Acer stuff and if it could be with the drivers included please ?
Thank you all.
I'm sorry if you couldn't understand somethink, I'm from spain.

I have two Acer laptops -- Acer support web site is pretty thorough! Whatever drivers and [most] software the laptop left Acer, that is what one will find somewhere within Acer support pages.

Hello to everybody, first I have to say sorry, because I didn't replied, but I had a lot of exams but at least I finished them all.
Yes I tried to call Acer to bring to them the laptop, but the problem is that I have to pay to bring to them the computer + the new Windows 7 Starter installation, and that's for me like a little bit expensive.
If someone could bring to me at least a Windows 7 ISO with Acer backgrounds and all that stuff I would be happy.
But anyway if finally I can't get the ISO at least I will go to the official page of Acer and do that.
Thank you all.

If you are not able to access your Recovery system that was made for your computer press ALT + F10 when you start your computer, you can contact Acer store here:

http://us-store.acer.com/erecovery/rcd/

Put in your SNID or Serial # and you can download recovery media that will restore factory conditioin.

Also if you may have made the Recovery for your system when you purchased it, you can use that as well...

No problem, was worth a try.
Maybe another shout to ACER regarding not finding your SNID, with your computer specs, serial number, SNID, etc. may provide you with a resolution.
Question: Why do you want factory Win7 starter?
You can download win7 ISO from
TechBench
All editions ( pro, home premium, etc ) can be made available from any windows 7 iso - either by removing the ei.cfg file from the sources folder, or by using
eicfg_removal_utility.zip
If you run eicfg on win7 ISO, it becomes AIO all-in-one and, yes, starter is listed!

The OP will need to activate windows. If you have the Acer recovery media, the product key and xml file are included.

If you use generic installation media - you can activate using the COA off the sticker ( somewhere on the machine - often in the battery comparrtment)

OP stated his HDD died and had to purchase new drive. With that said, don't believe he has access to recovery partition.
Did you try contacting Acer to inquire as to them sending you their OEM install media on DVD? Don't see a need to sent your computer them, when, if the provide DVD, you can install it yourself.
If you provide them with your computer specs, and problem, drive died, they might not charge you, or at least charge you what you would consider a reasonable price.
