I have a ThinkCentre M83 desktop PC that I bought years ago. The original HDD died some time ago, and I've been running openSUSE Linux on it.
I want to reinstall Windows 7 Pro (64-bit), which is what it came with. The sticker with installation code is still legible, but I don't have an .iso or DVD to use. I found a download for a recovery util, but it's an .exe file, which I can't use under Linux. I need installation media of some kind.
If this question had been already been asked, please point me to the solution. This is my first time on these forums. Thank you.

I believe this is what you looking for: How can I create Recovery Media, or order from Lenovo

If you can obtain a Windows 7 iso you can reinstall without needing a key due to it using SLP embedded in firmware.
