click here can download a win 7 iso burn to DVD or make a USB and install

you will then need to go to the Dell site to download and install drivers

On the microsoft site on entering the COA I GOT

The product key you've entered appears to be for software which was pre-installed by the device manufacturer. Please contact the device manufacturer for software recovery options.

Dell W7 oem. PM if want (free).

or as I have now discovered click here you can download .iso from Dell by inputting your service tag. Now that's excellent :)

And after your back to normal clone your drive so next time you only need to do a drive swap saves time and effort. I clone alternately to two drives.

A decent solution if you have 2 ext HDDs, but I would venture that regular Imaging to 1 (or more) ext HDD(s) has some advantages.

Easeus Todo Backup Free or Macrium Reflect Free are widely used

(Ext HDD advisable)
