I just went through this with a friend of mine, called HP and gave them the model number & key off the sticker and they sent the recovery disk for $12.

It should surely be the job of the company concerned to supply an OEM variant of the OS with each unit. They've paid the licence fee to allow instilation, that must allow them to bundle it? Bought a pre-made unit years ago and I've still got Win95OEM on my shelf.
