I have a netbook with windows 7, I want to put another OS on it. I do not have the a windows 7 CD but I do have the windows 7 key. I want to be able to put windows 7 back on it. Can I use a torrented version of windows 7 and the CD key on the sticker on the bottom of my laptop?

Download the appropriate version from here: http://www.mydigitallife.info/official-windows-7-sp1-iso-from-digital-river/

And then create a USB installer using this tool: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msstore/html/pbPage.Help_Win7_usbdvd_dwnTool

Once on the usb, browse the \sources folder and delete a file called ei.cfg to unlock all versions of windows, so from the same usb, ultimate/hp/basic should be available.
