Would like to reinstall windows 7 over windows 8 beta.

I currently have windows 8 preview and would like to re-install windows 7 ... I do not have the disks but I do have the iso files on the HD. Can I mount the iso to my drive and re-install win 7 or do I have to either burn to disk or usb...
Thanks

You need the bootable disk or USB flash stick for repair as well as reinstall.

If this is the Toshiba which came preinstalled with Win7 then follow these steps for getting a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 using the latest official installer with SP1 and Media Refresh (thousands of more drivers).
