The test drive isn't a download, because we're not allowed to give out download links here as it tends to encourage piracy.

However since you have a Product key, I suggest you borrow any retail Win7 installer from a friend to make yourself an all-versions installer like this:

Copy files from DVD to your desktop, remove ei.cfg file from Sources. Recompile ISO to burn all-versions installer DVD as follows: Bootable ISO - Create from Installation Files or write to flash stick: USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

Now boot installer to clean install Win7 being sure to select your version which will work with key.

Downloading from the internet can be problematic if you get a tampered ISO file. If forced to do this, I would check the HASH and SHA-1 against the official release versions HASH, after first scanning the ISO and extracted files with your AV and a spyware scan like Spybot.
