You can download one but search for official Win7 download from My Digital Life to make sure you get a safe one.

Burn to DVD or write to flash stick using Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool

Then boot the DVD/stick to clean reinstall using these steps to get it perfect: Reinstalling Windows 7

Windows system image GUI is very limited beast.

You could try.

It might work if it is smaller than the drive you are restoring to.


You could have issues with licensing - depending if it from an oem machine.

You'd need to apply his image to your HD on his hardware, then SysPrep it to remove all drivers and activation so it would start up when you move it back. SysPrep to move HD to another computer

Easier to just download and burn to DVD the ISO of your licensed version of Win7. boot it to clean reinstall.

You want the Win7 version which is on the COA sticker on the bottom of your laptop, likely Home Premium. Your specs say 64 bit and that hardware can certainly run it.

Download, Burn the ISO to DVD or write to bootable flash stick using Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool.

Boot the DVD or stick, follow these steps to get a Perfect Reinstall
