OEM branded copies of Windows will not work. You must have a full install version, boxed MS copy or OEM System Builder's copy. However, a MS upgrade version of Windows 7 will work. Do a search to learn how to install it.

Buying it online from a reputable software dealer, like newegg.com. On ebay and similar sites, you are really taking your chances. The OEM system builder versions of Windows are cheaper than full retail versions, for example, although the license allows you to install it only on one machine.
