    I have dell xps 15 laptop which had Windows 7 Home premium pre installed from dell , i mistakenly formatted my PC while doing some RnD and now lost by OS. I’m very unfortunate that i never made recovery discs for my os and my dell provided windows 7 cd is some how lost.
    Now im in middle of desert like i dont have any choice. I have question like would above will work with my existing dell provided OEM windows 7 pre installed “Key” which i have some how ?
    Please reply ASAP awaiting disparately for answer.


    • Hi Vishal,
      You probably have a sticker on the base of your laptop, which hopefully contains your license serial number. Some OEM’s have stopped doing this – which is a major mistake, as we all need to reinstall the OS sooner or later.
      Try this link for Produkey to get back your license key. As you’ve erased the OS, it may not work – but you might be lucky.

      As a final push – you could try to recover files on the hard drive using a free forensics tool. Windows does not “delete” files. So it’s likely the license is still intact on your laptop – but you just have to get to it.
      First, try to recover your data using DME.
      Take out the laptop drive – put it into a disk caddy. Attach that disk caddy to a second laptop that is running DME. That way you can find /see all the intact files that windows has never deleted.
      Save any important files onto the second laptop or a usb drive. That way you have a backup of the lost files.

      Or try to reinstall your windows 7 OS on your laptop.
      Windows says that this erases all the data, but it does not. Windows does not carry out secure delete – but there is a chance that you could overwrite a file by accident, which is a chance you may have to take.
      Then use Produkey and see if the license files can be found. Windows will work for a trial period before you need to activate it. You can use Produkey in this time to see if you can find your Dell OEM keys.

      Let me know how you get on. It’s devasting when you lose the os.

      So your final step is to use a FREE software program call “Reflect” to take a backup of your entire system when you’ve got the OS back on line.
      This way, you’ll always be able to restore your OS/ license keys in future.
      How to install /use Reflect. (it’s free for home users).

      Good luck!


      • HI uwnthesis,
        Im able to get my License Key provided by Dell but now problem is when i installed fresh OS of windows then while activating its saying Couldn’t validate Product Key from third party vender


      • Hi Vishal,
        I’ve had windows 8 laptops, downgraded to win 7 and the license key has failed to activate. Make sure that the product key matches the original version of windows, in that it’s Home/Ultimate/professional and 64 bit. If the laptop key won’t activate it sounds like the versions are slightly different.

    What is the difference between these two? What does the “_u_” mean?


    • Hi Phill,
      Great question. I’ve been having a quick look and it’s not obvious straight away. But on the far right hand side is a link to the MSDN link with Microsoft, that might help.

    • Hi Phill,
      Check the second link – that has a MSDN ID for more information.

    Hi there – I am trying to find the right download for my dad’s dell laptop. Long story short, it came with Win 7 Home premium and unfortunately after microsoft pushed out Win 10, there were a lot of issues with the computer so we tried to go back to Win 7, but was not able to. We then did a factory restore, but it restored to Win 10. No other restore points available and Dell is of no help of course. I am D/L the iso named X17-58997.iso but am unsure what the difference is/if it is the right one. Any advice is helpful..It’s 64bit and we do have the product key available. Appreciate it.


    • Hi Jay,
      Within a month of a windows 10 upgrade, you can roll back to windows 7 quite easily. It’s a shame that you didn’t shout out – as I’ve rolled back quite a few laptops that were aggressively forced onto Win 10.
      Okay, go to start > Settings > click “update and recovery” > select recovery > “Go back to Windows 7”. Try this out on win 10 to get back to win 7.
      If you’ve done a factory restore and its’ taken you to win 10, then I’m hoping the recovery option will be there for you.
      further links are here:

      Good luck, and let me know if you need help (ie the rollback fails).

        I appreciate the quick reply. Unfortunately we’ve already tried that and it’s not available so that’s why I’m looking into downloading something from here to see if that works.. Thoughts?


      • Hi Jay,

        Just been checking out your options.
        1. Home Premium
        2. 64 bit
        Def looks like you’d need X17 – 58997.iso. So you’re on the right track.
        Burn the .iso to a DVD.
        Next alter the bios boot sequence, so that it boots from the DVD first (not hard drive).
        Then the DVD will whirl and churn for a while – which is good as its transferring the start up files. Follow the onscreen menu’s – they’ll ask for country, date, time etc. It will need to reboot.
        Your license key is for win 7 home premium – so your keys will work as long as your operating system (home premium, 64 bit), matches the key.

        Boot Order.
        Here is a Dell article on how to change the bios boot order (so that it reads the DVD first).
        1. Power on laptop > 2. Keep tapping F2 until you get a blue screen (pics on the dell forum)
        3. Boot tab
        4. Probably hard drive will be selected > you need to change this to CD/DVD using the +/- keys
        5. F10 and Yes to save your changes.
        **remember Wins 7 has been installed to change the boot order back. It’s also a good idea to remove the win 7 DVD as soon as you can – otherwise it’ll load the DVD again.. so as soon as the install has completed, take the DVD out and go for a reboot.
        At the end you’ll need to do the F2 and access the blue screens to change the DVD option back to hard drive…. you’ll become an expert on blue menu options🙂
        Let me know how you get on, or if you get stuck at any stage.

    Merci beaucoup pour votre aide


  5. These are NOT Dell OEM ISOs – these are standard Microsoft retail ISOs which DO NOT WORK using the Dell OEM product key.

    Do you have the en_windows_7_professional_with_sp1_x64_dvd X16-96091?



    • Hi Azim
      There’s no X16-96091 listed. But there is an english win 7 pro with sp1 x 64 version. This might work for you.

      Good luck.
