Welcome Fastdrive to the windows 7 forums.

It would help to know what kind of laptop you have. You evidently have an oem version of windows 7. Most laptop vendors will send you a set of re-install disks for a small fee. Other people's windows 7 disks most likely will not allow you to install using your laptops product key.

Check your manual for details of the manufacturer's Recovery system - they are legally required under the terms of their license with Microsoft to provide you with a means of returning the system to its ex-factory state. Most manufactuers interpret this as providing a Recovery partition, which will either boot from keystrokes during the POST process, or from which disks can be burned.
