You can get it for free. Just do the download option. You'll get an ISO when you download it, and then you can burn that ISO yourself. Get the Win 7 Pro Sp1 x64 option.

That seems a bit complex, even though it probably isn't. Are you sure the system will A work and B fit onto a CD?

System as in your parts? Or System as in the OS?

It won't fit onto a CD (700mb); you'll need a blank DVD (4.7GB). And it's not complex at all; it has you install a MS Download manager, and then downloads the ISO for you to a location that you select. Then you can use ImgBurn (or the built-in Windows 7 ISO burner if you have Windows 7 already) to burn the ISO image onto a blank DVD.

You can get a pack of 50 of them for like $20.

Does your current computer have a DVD burner?
