Welcome to our forum sasch.

Do you have a COA key for Windows Home Premium?

Their should be a Microsoft sticker on the bottom or in the battery compartment. I looks something like this.

If you have a proper COA key this site may or may not help getting Windows 7.

You can yes
You can activate later after you go to your desktop and make sure you have internet drivers installed by clicking Start and right click the Computer listing on the right column and click on Properties,
On the bottom it will show activate now or similar.

You can't check for updates until windows is activated or windows may check for updates but won't install them yet until windows is activated.
