Windows 7: Installing New Windows 7 with Boot Disc

Installing New Windows 7 with Boot Disc


So originally when I bought my Laptop it was Windows Vista. A while ago I upgraded to Windows 7 by downloading the OS and a valid serial key form a third party distributor associated with my school.
Next week I`m putting together a new desktop PC, and want to install Windows 7 on it. I have another valid serial key to use for the registration, however do not have a boot disc to use.
Wil the System Restore Disc that I can create using the wizard on Win 7 be able to boot and load a new OS on my new desktop or will i have to create a boot disc another way.
Also, I still have the original installation files saved in My Downloads, although not in .iso format but expanded and just saved as files.

Basically I want to know if the system restore disk be able to do fresh install, or if not, how can I create a boot disk

Thank you for your replies in advance.
