Once the factory installed Recovery partition is deleted, unfortunately it cannot be recreated.

You will need either a Dell reinstallation disc, that's the same version factory installed, or buy a new retail, or OEM version of windows, that has it's own COA/product key 

Which version of windows are you using?

RE: Recovery Disks

If your Windows 7 can boot, then update your BIOS to the latest version:

Then proceed with the Upgrade to Windows 10:

After the initial upgrade you can download Windows 10 Installation Media and Clean Reinstall:
