Default Windows 7 Reupgrade

I bought a computer 2 years ago or so. It came with a free upgrade to windows 7. I had to do a hard reset to factory settings so I am in Vista right now.

Is there a way to reupgrade to Windows 7 again for free?

System info:
HP HDX X16T-1200 CTO Premium Notebook

PCSerial number (S/N): CNF9373XR5

Product number (P/N): nk135av

Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista (64-bit)


I am in the process of recovering my files from my external harddrive now. It may take about 3 hours or so.

I also have 2 mystery DVD discs and I don't know yet if they were windows 7 recovery discs that I made after the upgrade to windows 7 or if they are windows Vista recovery discs.

So if anyone has done this before any help would be great.

When you upgraded the first time did they provide a win7 key? If so you could always torrent a copy and use that key. Wouldnt hurt to just pop in those discs and see what they are.
