Just Google it, since you have a Product Key you only need the ISO file.

Be sure to the comments carefully to make sure nothing is added to download, rightclick scan ISO with your AV and Malwarebytes before unlocking all versions (if necessary) and burning to DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed.

Here are tips to get a purrfect clean reinstall: Clean Reinstall steps

It isn't illegal to distribute an unmodified ISO, you know?

Go look on My Digital Life's forums for an Windows 7 Starter ISO. You should have a product key printed on your laptop somewhere.

Downloading an ISO isn't illegal; Microsoft generally provides them, actually. Cracking/modifying the ISO is illegal, however.

Nobody said anything about illegal or not.

It is just forums policy not to post up ISO links as it might encourage piracy or lots of installs without means to activate.

We help more users perfectly reinstall bloated factory preinstalls than all other sites on the web put together, even with the rule.

In ten seconds of Googling, you'll find legit, Microsoft sponsored download sites for the .isos. You can quickly turn one of them into a universal disc and then use it to make an install flash drive. Activate with your key from the netbook once you have it up and running, and you'll be fine, and legit.

That's why we provided multiple links to show how you can download any version and unlock all versions in it to install Starter with your Product Key on COA sticker.

Just run this tool on the ISO: Ei.cfg Removal Utility Lets You Use Any Product Key With Your Windows 7 Disc

then burn it to DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed, or to install from flash stick: isntall UltraISO trial version, on File tab open ISO, on Bootable tab Write Disk Image, Format, Write. Boot under USB or HD's.

Once again, I'll give you the steps if you care to read them for getting a perfect clean reinstall of factory OEM: Clean Reinstall steps

Settle down, open your eyes, and read what people are trying to tell you. Any version of Windows 7 x86 contains Starter on the disc. We're way past the point this should be considered common knowledge by now.

Send me a PM if you don't have your answer, but a quick Google site will bring you to the legit .isos.

If you are currently running Linux, then find a Linux tool that will open a .iso file, allow you to delete one file, the ei.cfg file, and then resave the .iso. Linux also has some tools to write that .iso to a flash drive as well, I believe.

If not, just use a second computer or a friends computer. Easy solution, problem solved, no need to get snippy.
