Well assuming that the HDD is intact here

You run the Recovery Partition from the HDD and rebuild the OS from there. Then when that is finished Make a Recovery Set this time instead of ignoring the instructions provided by the NB Maker.

If you don't have a Recovery Partition on the HDD or the HDD has been replaced you need to contact the system Maker here and buy a Recovery Set from them.

Every System that comes without a Recovery Set has Instructions on the system to burn a Recovery Set as soon as you start the system and if you ignore this you do it at your own peril.

As for Activating Windows if it is a HP System Activation isn't required but if you are asked to Activate it you can do this On Line or change the Country Name to yours and ring the phone number displayed and follow the prompts.
