just lost can you help me?

Hi....have a gateway with a vista 64 bit...stopped working... the recovery discs that gateway sent me dont work but I tried a friends windows 7 and it worked. I wiped out hard drive so I have no OS at moment. Can I buy a windows 7 64 bit and install it? which windows 7 OS can I use? Do i just need to buy the windows disc and install? thanks for any help you can give.
