If you have the recovery disks, just put the first one in the disk drive and it should boot itself.

This will be the factory preinstalled image with all of the bloatware so after install I would Clean Up Factory Bloatware.

Most tech enthusiasts would not even run such a compromised Windows 7 install but instead Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
