Answer

Download the appropriate Windows 7 .ISO file (must match what your product key version is for)

 

Windows 7 Home Premium 32Bit: http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-58996.iso
Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit: http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-58997.iso

 

Windows 7 Professional 32Bit: http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-59183.iso
Windows 7 Professional 64Bit: http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-59186.iso

 

Windows 7 Ultimate 32Bit: http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-59463.iso
Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit: http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-59465.iso

 


After downloading the .iso file use ImgBurn or Gear ISO to create a bootable DVD.

ImgBurn - In addtion to supporting the creation of Cds/DVDs from .ISO files,
it supports a wide range of other image file formats, and it's free.
(BIN, CUE, DI, DVD, GI, IMG, MDS, NRG, PDI and ISO)

(The steps are the same, except you are not creating a Repair disc but a full installation DVD)


 

Note: Always use DVD+R media and the slowest burn speed (4x or 6x) if offered a choice.

 


====================== Keyless Install ================================

 

How to perform a 'Keyless Install' of Windows:

 

Boot from the Windows 7 DVD disc you created and start the installation process.

 

After you enter user name and password you will be asked to: 'Type your Windows product key', do not enter a key.
Also located just below the box where you would enter the key is a box with a check mark to 'Automatically activate Windows when I am online', remove the check mark and click 'Next'.

 

You will now have a 30 day grace period in which to activate Windows.

 

During this 30 day grace period you can try resolving your problems. 
After you are satisfied all problems have been resovled then activate Windows.

 

====================== Device Drivers =================================

 

Go to your computer manufacture's support web site and check for Windows 7 drivers for your specific model number.

 

If there are Windows 7 drivers, then download to a folder on your hard drive and install all of them, starting with the Motherboard/chipset drivers, SATA, LAN, Audio, USB, Graphics, Webcam, Etc., and so on.
