Need a Lenovo Windows 7 Installer

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.

Re: Need a Lenovo Windows 7 Installer

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.
