In that case download any version in the correct bit-rate, run the eicfg removal tool on the ISO to unlock all versions, burn to DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed or write to flash stick using Universal USB Installer, boot and choose your licensed version.

That is a complete overkill. Get a hold of any installation disc and find Command Prompt in the repair section. Then run these commands:

SELECT DISK n (where n is the number of the HDD in question)
SELECT PARTITION n (where n is the number of the Recovery Partition)
Then the whole thing again for the activation:
SELECT PARTITION n (where n is the number of the C Partition)
Exit (to exit Diskpart)
Just listen to Whs... I am really thankful to you whs :)
