If you don't have a Dell warranty in effect, Dell will not replace the DVD.

There are DVD's of Dell OEM copy of Windows 7 Home Premium, for sale on eBay:

You could also, buy either a new copy of retail, or OEM copy of Windows 7 Home Premium.

Personal, I would buy the replacement off eBay, remember to obtain either a 32, or 64-bit copy of W-7 HP, depending which version was factory installed.

A better forum to post in, would be the Alienware Owners Club Forum, here:
