I have the COA and Product Key, but I do not have the Lenovo disks.

The legwork:

-Get drivers for your hardware...especially network drivers (and keep them stored somewhere...even in the cloud, if need be...there are enough free services to facilitate this)

-Install Windows 7
-Disable Recommended Updates
-Activate Windows 7
-Have fun!

Order them from Lenovo or buy it from newegg or borrow a disc or just reach out and grab it.
