Original Windows 7 OS???

So I've used a Alienware 14 for years. Few months ago mine fried. So today I purchased a gently used one. 

Problem is.......some jerk updated it to Windows 10. Having an i5 and only 8GB of ram.......well windows 10 doesnt work well. Secondly it has none of the well loved alienware features and or drivers. 


I want the original Alienware branded windows 7 64 bit OS back. Problem is..............idk where the heck to find it . 

Anyone know a good download link? or even somewhere that I could purchase a disk version? 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Id much rather NOT send it back to dell to have it re-installed. 

 

Thanks :-D

The sticker on the bottom of the unit that says Windows 7 home premium :-p

Its a 2013 model, my old one was a 2012. Sadly Win10 does not play well. I really want the original OS back. I cant even get updates to DL on this. its sad.

So I downloaded the ISO, downloaded windows boot loader for USB, paired the two, Set up my boot options for USB to boot first.

Shut down, installed USB, can get the windows 7 installer to start, and then it screams at me and says im missing USB/CD/DVD rom drivers?

Wont let me go past that part.

My usb works lol my cd rom works.......

What am i missing here?
