Hi
Can you try to do one key recovery if it luckily works on our system as most of the time one key recovery doesn't work after installing windows 8 on windows 7 but you can try.
Just press the small button near the power button to switch on laptop and then follow the onscreen steps.
If it doesn't work, then you might try this guide by which you can use the image to install the factory windows 7 image.

And please do tell if you want to do it without windows 7 disk.

Hi
The key below the laptop will not work on a retail disk (windows 7 installation). So the COA key wont work if your installation disk is a retail disk.
Though, you can use the phone activation procedure to do so.
