How to download Windows 7 using the product key from Microsoft web?

Hi all,

I have a samsung laptop that came with Windows 7 on it. I needed to change it's hdd because the original one got broken. How do I get installed the original OS on it? I have the product key on the back of the pc, but I could't find any way to download windows on the microsoft website.

Sorry for my poor english, it's not my native language.

Thank you all in advance!

What OS is listed on the COA ?

If it`s Home Basic, I know of no legal site to download it.

Download a copy of windows 7 Ultimate from here,
Windows 7 Ultimate SP1-U ISO
English x86: X17-59463.iso
Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River My Digital Life

Then download ei.cfg Removal Utility from here,
Create Windows 7 Universal ISO With All Editions Selection On Install with ei.cfg Removal Utility My Digital Life

Run the utility, then create a install disk and install, select Home Basic when asked.
