I am about to upgrade a lot of my current contents and I realized when I bought my pre built PC it did not come with Windows 7 disc,just the code. And I was wondering If I could just go to eBay and buy a Windows 7 disc and use the code I have. Thank You for helping me out :p

The installation package is available online, just use the link that Someone Somewhere gave you.
The activation code is the most important one, and it will probably work only on the motherboard that you have now, and you will not be able to transfer it on a different PC later on.

You will need a different PC where to download the installation package, and create a bootable flash drive.
