windows 7 downgrade right from 8.1 replacement disk

I recently purchased a Inspiron 15 5558 preloaded with windows 7 through downgrade rights from 8.1. The laptop was shipped with a windows 8.1 recovery disk.  I routinely (8-12 months) reinstall the OS on my computers.

Since I got a windows 8.1 reinstall disk, do I need to contact Dell for a Windows 7 recovery disk?

Want to avoid having to purchase Windows 7 OEM disk for additional $$.

Thanks.

You will need the 7 recovery media -- if the system is under warranty, see 

<<www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/media>>

(assuming US/UK/Canada).
