Clean Install 7 Home Premium Complicated

Ok I have a OEM Asus CM6870, (Dont know what I was thinkng LOL) I would like to do a clean reinstall of 7 home premium. I have a four disc image, and I think there may be a hidden repair image on the hard drive. If I have to end up with all the extras that came pre-installed fine but is there a way to do a clean install into UEFI....
I can do this with Windows 8.1 Pro, install as UEFI from a retail disc. but I would also like to keep a disc with my licsence of 7 home premium. I have a product key.

Yea But Fry,s wont give it to me, Asus tells me to go to Fry's, and Microsoft... Well you see. Is there a way? I have seen places that it is possible but could not get clear instruction.. I chould try uninstall everything, and do a refresh, make another image. But can I switch to UEFI without a fresh start????

What won't Fry's give you?
If it's the Win 7 install disc, the tutorial explains where to get the ISO and how to create install media.

Fry's wants me to bring it in and let them do the repair. Something about a special chip on the board. It is a way striped down version of the non oem board. Anyways I can pay for it and wait. I kanda wanted to do it right now. Are the digital river ISO's legtit. Kind of skeptical. Will microsoft let me download OS. I do have the license.

Yes, the Digital River files are legit. You pay nothing.

Do you have a 25 character product key on a sticker on that machine somewhere?

I think Fry's just wants to get into your wallet.
