I have had my laptop for about 5 years and replaced the hard drive once, upgraded from Vista to 7, and factory reset win 7 twice using the CD. Now somewhere along that line I have lost my System Recovery D partition. I also do not have the Win 7 CD. I do how ever have the serial code of Windows 7. Is there any way for me to do a complete re install of Windows 7?

P.S I have started up with system recovery tools but none of them are for a complete factory reset.
