Windows 7 back up disk

I just purchased windows 7 for $49.95 with the student deal that is going.
I ask them to send me a back up disk kit for $14 and all i find is a back up disk.

I was wondering if i could install the OS from a back up disk. If not how big of a DVD do i need to install onto a DVD and if there any instructions as im only 13.

Wondering how i got it for $50 my sister goes to uni and she uses Mac

Click on the DVD drive in Computer and Open/Browse. Does it look like this:

Whose computer do you want to put this on? Are you doing this for your folks or sister?
