As long as the bit version is the same, you can burn a copy of any Windows 7 installation disk and use it (the disk is not copy protected, the license number is) as long as you use the activation code for the laptop, the proper version will be installed. Remember, you must use the correct bit version. 32-bit or 64-bit.

Never tried anything like that, but I'd imagine, it could POSSIBLY work only on identical models.
Since yours are different, I don't think so....

Your HP computer may have recovery partition and also, when you bought it, ii should have included some recovery DVDs.
In some cases, there is a program on a computer, which will let you create recovery DVDs, but I assume, you can't boot at all at the moment?
You can also order recovery DVDs from HP.
When I bought my HP laptop, recovery disks creator program didn't work, so I called HP and they sent me DVDs for free.
