How to reinstall Windows 7

I recently requested Windows 7 recovery media to restore my P50 laptop after my hard drive died, and today I received the DVDs. The problem is, there is no DVD drive on my laptop. How can I restore my O.S.?

Good day and welcome to the community.

Personally, I use a USB3.0 external DVD drive/burner. Never had a problem going that route.

Regards.

I must have read your mind. I was just thinking that's what I need to get - a USB DVD drive.  Smiley Happy  Thanks!
