You have two options:

1) From BIOS launch Factory Recover. It will format the drive and reinstall windows as it came from manufacture
HP PCs - Performing an HP System Recovery (Windows 7) | HP(R) Customer Support

2) On another computer, download the downloader tool https://www.heidoc.net/php/Windows%2...Downloader.exe
Run it. Choose win 7 pro 64 - OEM
Burn the iso on a DVD or use rufus Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way to make a USB installation flash disk.

Boot from the installation disk, go to Install - Advanced - delete all partitions - create new - proceed.

The product key is good for 32 bit or 64 bit, it's your choice which one you install. Either one can be activated with that key. It's only locked to the edition, Home, Pro, etc. Any version ISO will do, with a minor modification. If you remove the ei.cfg file that ISO becomes multi edition. Windows 7 Universal Installation Disc - Create Then just install the same version from the list that is listed on the COA sticker. Also, odds are, even using that key, you will have to do a phone activation. I have any time I have used a OEM-COA key for the first time. That PC was originally activated with a different OEM-SLP key. You can't use the OEM-SLP key with stock install media. It only works with the custom factory recovery/install media. And if you have that media, you don't need to know that key anyway, its auto entered.

If the COA sticker says Pro, install Pro. If it has 4 gigs or RAM or more, your going to want to install the 64 bit version.

I don't have an alternative source for an ISO. Wish I did. The official download link has never worked for me even with my MSDN keys. I've been told that is because MSDN keys are blocked. I don't know if that is true though. The only other Windows 7 keys I have are OEM, which I know are blocked. Why Microsoft did that I have no idea? The Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 MCT's will accept OEM keys. I get my ISO's via MSDN which is a subscription service.

The OEM of that device may sell you a set of recovery disks? From what I hear, they aren't cheap. I've never gone that route myself.
