  1. If you don't have a hard drive that contains an OS in the system anymore, you will just have to insert a Windows CD/DVD and install it. During the installation you will get the option to make multiple partitions.

  3. You want to install Windows 7 without using a CD for it? You need something to install it from. Either a DVD or usb flash drive.

    If you can enter your boot menu by pressing F2, press it with the DVD in and choose your dvd drive as the boot device.

    Insert the Windows 7 dvd in the dvd drive, start the computer, press F2 for the boot menu, select the DVD drive and install Windows 7 by following the instructions on the screen. It's not rocket science.
