    Do about 10 hours of paid work and then take the stuff that you get from that and give it too a shop that sells windows 7 and they'll give you windows 7 for free.

    (ie buy it)
  2. Every Windows installation gives you a month of trial, after that you have to register with Microsoft. That being said, you still have to buy it to install.
    Gotta pay to play. If this is too expensive, try an alternative like Ubuntu.
    I REALLY hope you're not asking for a workaround (pirate) solution on this forum. Can't be that fool.
  3. Well, you have a couple options. If you had a previous PC with Windows 7 installed on it, then you're allowed to download that same version of Windows 7 as a backup. Just make sure you have a Microsoft Windows 7 key (if you have another prebuilt PC with Win 7 then you can likely find the key as a sticker on the bottom of a laptop; not sure where on a desktop) or else you'll only have a trial period for windows before some of its features just stop working. Here you can find a backup .iso file for I believe every version of Windows 7:

    It's completely legal, assuming you have the key. However, if you don't have a previous PC with Win 7 on it then it's illegal and I believe we're not allowed to discuss such things on this forum. However if you need an alternative, go with Linux. Completely free, and very nice to use.

    If you need help with the actual installation of Windows 7, let me know.
  4. Um, its what, 90 USD for an OEM one time use key? That doesn't seem to bad.

    Anyways, if you have a windows 7 install disk, from a friend or family member perhaps, but no key, install windows, call microsoft tell them you lost you key, 9 times out of 10 they will give you one for free.

    If you have no windows 7 install disk you are pretty much shit out of luck.

    You have a Windows 7 disk, It doesn't matter if it's Dell or HP or Lenovo or whatever manufacturer, just use that to install. You might get some bloatware with it but you can uninstall those and I'm actually not even sure that bloatware is on the Windows 7 disk itself. If you have the key code on the disk or somewhere then you're good to go. I don't see what your problem is.

    It won't act any differently. Just use the disk to install and make sure you have your Windows Serial key. If you're that uncomfortable with using your current disk, then download the aforementioned .iso file that corresponds to the Windows 7 Key you have and burn it to a blank disk or copy it to a bootable USB.
