Everyone has one of those. It's called the C: drive.
How can you save $100 ?

You want to install Windows 7 to your new computer? You need to buy the license, which conveniently comes with the disk.

If you only need the Repair disk, make it from Windows 7 like this: System Repair Disc - Create

If you already have the license, you'll need to find an installer for the same version: Reinstalling Windows 7

Depends on what you mean by "boot disk".

If you mean a bootable disk that will allow you to Install Windows 7, we have tutorials on the forum that will walk you through doing that -- but you need Windows 7 installation media to do that.

If you mean a bootable disk from which you can RUN Windows 7, then no, there's no way to do that. The boot disks you read about actually run WinPE -- which is NOT Windows 7.
