There are several links to MS to get it, but I couldn't find a direct link on a Microsoft page.

For your own security, please doublecheck these links to ensure they are actually going to Microsoft.

Just because you have a key doesn't mean you have a license.  If you find a key on the side of a computer being discarded it doesn't count.  (Not saying that's the case, but if it is...).  Download Windows 7 media and install from that.
