Without a DVD, the only other method I know of is to use a USB flash drive. I can give you instructions for making a bootable Win 7 flash drive, but you will still need to purchase a legal Windows 7 product key.

The best way to do it , in my opinion , is to purchase a new hard drive, add it to the system, then install Windows 7 on it. When your done you will have both operating systems ( 1 on each hard drive ) and you can choose which one you want to use everytime you boot up.
