Need help doing a clean factory reset

So I have an hp pavilion g7. I'm also looking forward to doing a factory reset. I got the download for the OS from here:

I do have a product key for windows 7 below my laptop. I'm wondering if it works to do this install.
And also how do I do this whole process.

-Thanks
