In the future after you set up one install as you want it you can SysPrep the HD to remove all drivers, activation and hardware ID's to move HD or its image to new hardware: SysPrep to move HD to another computer

The SysPrepped image can then be stored to apply your Win7 installation to any machine in the future and it will start up already set up with your programs ready to run.

HP Double Layer 8X DVD+R 8.5GB
HP 16x DVD-R 4.7GB
Best to use DVD+R 4.7GB.
