XPS 15-L502X, Windows 7 Home Pro installation

I have the 2011 XPS 15-L502X which was pre-installed with Windows 7 Home Pro OS upgraded to Windows 10. Recently my HDD crashed and I lost my OEM Windows 7. How can I reinstall the OEM Windows 7? I have the product key sticker provided with the machine.

You can clean install Windows 10 Home directly. Use another computer to download Windows 10 installation media from Microsoft. See here for details:

natakuc4,

The site you linked to was for Windows 10. The customer was asking how to reinstall Windows 7 which is why I listed the site to buy the CD.
