    Enter your product key into https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/soft...nload/windows7 to see if it accepts it to download the ISO - I think these include SP1 and then you can do a reinstall.

    You can use https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down...-download-tool to create a bootable USB or DVD from the saved ISO.
