You won't get a free copy of Windows. However, you can Clean Reinstall a Factory OEM Windows using the product key that came with your laptop. That's if you don't want to work through cleaning your machine.

A copy of Windows 7 is free but the legal COA activation key are not free.

What Micorsoft COA sticker do you have on your laptop?
On that sticker will be which Windows 7 came with the laptop and give you the activation COA that you have already paid for when you bought the laptop. You can use that to clean install that Windows 7 again on that laptop.
This sticker might be on the bottom of the laptop or inside the battery compartment.

Then get the key from him. And follow the tutorial. Or pay him to do it again.

Unless get from my friend means its a illegal copy. In which case you are just asking for trouble.

If your friend does not have a key for it, and does not have the windows 7 key sticker on it, Then its a illegal copy. You will need to buy one.

Newegg and amazon are good places to start.
