How to make a windows 7 x64 installation disk?

I've recently bought a HP laptop and I'm just wondering how can you create a windows 7 installation cd just in case there's a problem.

System
-Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
-CPU 2.10GHz AMD 4200 series
-HP Pavilion Entertainment dv6
-Windows 7 came pre-installed

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance

The installer is provided along with tool to burn to DVD or write to flash stick in Steps 1/2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which steps will also get a much superior install without HP's worst load of bloatware in the industry.

At the minimum I would Clean Up Factory Bloatware.
