Yes you can download it, just make sure you know your product key, you will need it to activate Windows 7, you can use Windows as a trial version if you don't remember your key. Download here http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/Windows-7.shtml and burn it to a DVD.

While its possible for Windows to adapt to your new hardware, it can't always.

Either download a torrented Windows 7 install, then use your own product key, or wait for your friend to give you the CD again.

The best way IS to format and re-install Windows, you'll have a lot less problems..

The Windows 7 ISO disk...your computer will identify it as a normal, regular Windows 7 OS DVD

Agreed, also it's best to unistall all the old drivers before you install the new MOBO. But with Windows 7 you don't need to format and reinstall.
