You can download a ISO image which you will need to burn to a DVD to create a bootable Windows 7 installation disc.

 

Your friend will need a valid product key to activate this copy of Windows 7.

How to burn ISO image using Windows Burn Disk Image.
 
Notice:  This applies only to Windows 7 and Windows 8, earlier versions do not have this.  
 
1.  Place a blank CD or DVD in the tray of your optical drive and close the tray.
 
2.  After you have downloaded the ISO image you want to burn right click on the Start orb, then choose Windows Explorer.
 
3.  When Explorer opens click on Downloads in the left pane.  Scroll down till you find the ISO file you want and double click on it.  Click on Burn Disk Image.
 
4.  In the image below you will see Disk burner:, this should be set to the optical drive you want to use.  Click on Verify disc after burning if you want to Windows to verity the disc image after burn.  Click on burn.

Thanks.

I'm not 100% sure but I believe you have to download a 64-bit ISO on a 64-bit system; same idea on 32-bit

This is a reputable website, I wouldn't suggest this if I didn't have complete faith in the website.

Yes, they will need to download the same version that was installed.

Thanks.

The links work just fine.  The download begins as soon as you click on the link. :thumbup2:
