You'll just have to burn the downloaded windows 7 from the link provided to you in a DVD then install it using the product key you got.

Does the link the seller sent you point to an ISO file?

If it is an iso file, something like UltraISO would work (the trial would be sufficient for burning the iso).

You'll be able to tell when you download the file. TDK and Verbatim are generally 2 of the best DVD brands around...

Dude, the bread has already been given to you. We have already said that:

1. Download the ISO file
2. Burn it to a disk (DVD, most likely) using a burning software
3. Install it using the conventional way (putting the disk in the cd/dvd/whatever drive)
4. If it asks you for a key, use the one they gave to you

What else do you want? What buttons to click? What snacks to eat while waiting?

I recommend downloading Nero 9 lite, its free and Nero is excellent for this job. Download the ISO, burn it, Nero is very easy to use (its like burning CD's for dummies). After that you are done and ready to go, you boot from it and you're off. BTW windows 7 installation is also (installing an OS for dummies), couldn't of made it easier. Good luck.
