  1. You have to get a W7 DVD somewhere or ISO. Microsoft used to let you download it but I dunno why they stopped. Maybe able to get it from eBay. If this is a brand name ready-built, the vendor maybe able to snail-mail you one after your proof of ownership.
  2. boot from your windows7 dvd and format the drive.then let win7 install do its thing.

    You have to purchase a valid WIn 7 install. Which will come with a license key and the install media.
    Boot from that install media and install.
