Would like to clean install 7 on new HP DV7-6165US

Just got this new laptop and it's loaded with tons of bloatware,I would like to start fresh,but of course I don't have a 7 disc.Is there any way of downloading an iso and using the key that came with the laptop?

I believe the tutorial I linked to below should contain all the information you need, including a place that you can legally download the Windows 7 ISO from. The issue that usually comes up when using a OEM key is that Windows will not activate, and you have to call MS to activate over the phone. I have also included a tutorial for doing this.

Follow these steps to get a perfect reinstall of HP factory preinstall which has the worst bloatware of any make: Reinstalling Windows 7

Activate online using the Product Key on COA sticker.

I have an iso that I downloaded from digital river that I have removed the eicfg and burned to a dvd.I also have my original 7 home premium disc that is loaded on my desktop pc. Which would be the better route to take to load a clean copy onto my laptop.

Whichever one has SP1 would be my choice.
