Go to Dell Support Website, enter your Service tag, you will find Dell OS recovery software, download and install it, it will help you Download Windows and create Bootable drive

It depends on the OS -- Windows 8 or 10 can be downloaded.  Windows 7 cannot (for most Dell systems).  If Windows 7, you'll need to look for a source of recovery media on EBay or elsewhere online - Dell doesn't supply Windows 7 for most systems at this point.

For 8,

For 10,
