Windows 7: Windows 7 USB Drive Deleted

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
Windows 7 USB Drive Deleted

My Windows 7 USB Drive that I use to boot and install windows was deleted.

After several reboots, reinstalls, etc. and sitting in my computer it randomly stopped working. The files weren't reading.

So I wiped it and formatted it.

I went to the website that I've always went to do download the software and it sent me to windows website.

It says this

"Unsupported Product
The product key you entered appears to be for software that was pre-installed on a device. Please contact the device manufacturer for software recovery options."

Can anyone help me find a work around? Even the message above proves I have a genuine key. It just came preinstalled so for whatever reason they won't give me the iso file.

As the MS site says, MS is not responsible for supporting OEM installs - it's just taken them a while to getting around to restricting the downloads of Windows 7.
You will probably need to contact the machine's manufacturer to get a set of Recovery disks, unless you created the set when you got the machine.
