How do I reinstall windows with only the product key?

How am I supposed to reinstall windows 7 if I only have the product key but no install cd? I have a recovery cd but I want a completely fresh install.

    Go here and download the ISO that matches your specific version:

    Burn to DVD, install, and activate with your existing key.
