Re-installing windows 7 on new SSD with no backup or disc

Hi,

My laptop recently crashed big time!
Won't boot at all, hdd seems to have died.

I am therefore looking at replacing it with a new ssd, but how will I be able to install windows 7 once I get this new ssd?
I don't have any backups or discs to use, only my win 7 product key on the underside of the laptop.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Hi,

Follow the steps detailed here - it contains a link to download the ISO so you can create your own installation DVD.

Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

Once installed, activate the installation using the product key printed on the COA sticker stuck underneath the laptop.

Regards,
Golden

I reinstall windows a lot of times. I'm afraid that the Windows 7 installation might get scratches. So, I want to take a backup copy of the disc. I want to know if it is copy protected or something or if I can directly copy it using an image burning software. Thanks.
