You can just buy any Win7 from a computer store and install it on your pc without worries. Just as long as you have a dvd drive in your computer and a Win7 disc you're good.

You can buy the FULL Version, or grab the OEM version from tigerdirect, newegg, zipzoomfly, among others. The OEM version is cheaper, though it doesn't come with a pretty box, it is basically the same version as the Retail copy. Just be aware that the Retail comes with 32bit and 64bit in the box, and the OEM is either or, but not both.
