Finally, opened up the back panel of the machine (it has a phone-like snapon) and lo and behold, there was the sticker! Not very smart of HP, I would say, that back panel's not very sturdy and a lot of people would have trouble figuring out how to take it off.

Dude, to reformat you need a licensed win7 copy. What key did you input when the machine was formatted?
what actually happened is that i sent my comp to the very same seller to reformat it.yes, before that, my copy was original. maybe he's done something.i'm nagging him, but tell me, is there any way to buy the key ONLY, without buying another win7 OS?or is there any way to retrieve the key?

Please understand, you dont own a win7 license as of now- you need to sort out with the seller etc. Theres nothing anybody here can do to help you.
