You should be able to download and reinstall Windows using the Dell Recovery Image:


You won't need a key if the system had a Windows license.

Re: Dell e7440 windows issue

E7440 doesn't come with optical drive so you would need a recovery USB stick.

The Dell OS Recovery Tool will help you download a customized Dell recovery image of Microsoft Windows or Linux that was preinstalled on your Dell PC.

What you will need

  • Service Tag of the Dell PC on which you want to install Microsoft Windows or Linux
  • Download and install Dell OS Recovery Tool (runs in Microsoft Windows only)
  • Blank USB flash drive with at least 16GB of free space
  • Microsoft .Net Framework 4.5.2 or higher
  • Administrator user rights and at least 16GB of available storage space to download the Dell ISO recovery image

Note: For instructions on how to download the operating system recovery image and create a USB recovery key in Linux, refer to the Dell knowledge-base article How to download and use the Dell OS Recovery Image in Linux.

Note: If you have the Windows 10 S version it will not allow the download or use of Dell OS Recovery Tool on a PC running Microsoft Windows 10 S. To create OS Recovery Media for a PC running Microsoft Windows 10 S, follow the instructions to create OS Recovery Media from a Windows PC and select "Other Device" at the "Select Device to Recover" screen. This is Windows 10 S applicable only.
