Windows 7: Not sure how to create Windows 7 Boot Disc?

Not sure how to create Windows 7 Boot Disc?

Okay so I have searched online for how to create a Windows 7 Boot Disc, but to no avail. I have blank dvds, I have a legit operating system, and I have an activation code. I have no idea where to go from here and find boot files or installation files or create ISOs etc. Can anyone help me? I was hoping to clean install Windows 7 to regain some long lost speed.

Hello Chunkles, welcome to Seven Forums!

You will need to borrow or download installation media of the exact same Windows 7 version as the activation key you have so you can do a clean install using that Windows activation key; it is against forum policy to post download links to MS software.

There's a lot of useful information in this tutorial linked below and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.
