If you want a clean install and if your friend's Windows DVD is the same version as yours you can use it, and then use your product key on your COA sticker to activate it.

If the restoration partition does not work, you can use an ISO and follow this guide

You can download an iso image of your Windows 7 from Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River My Digital Life and burn it on a blank DVD.

You can then use this DVD to install Windows 7 and use the genuine Product Key that you already have to activate the OS either on the Net or by a Phone Call to Microsoft.

Is there any particular reason that you feel the need to re-install the OS, if you have a problem with the machine perhaps the experts here can help solve it rather than have to go to the trouble of a re-install.
