Most SSD's are 2.5" which are the same size as a laptop HDD. Regardless of which version of SATA you have an SSD should work. It just may not be as fast as it could be. Which is still much faster than a spinning HDD. As for your OS, you should be able to install Win7 to it and just use the license key that is on your laptop for activation. You will need a Win7 install disk.

I am partial to the Kingston Hyper-X 3k 120GB.

555MB/s read and 510 MB/s write. Sata 3.0 (6Gb/s). They can be found in the US for about $60 - $70. Not sure whats available in Europe and at what price.

It would be possible to image to an external and back to the ssd. However, I always find it easier to just reinstall the OS and then copy your data back over.
