Make sure you skip the activation. You can run for a couple of weeks without activating Windows.

Ok, I have downloaded Windows 7 Home Premium with Service Pack 1 (SP1): from the link above.
I now have this: GSP1RMCHPXFRER_EN_DVD on my desk top. Any ideas where to go from here. I am unable to open any of the folders??

Any advise would be much appreciated, :)

Dicegirl, you cant run it from the desktop you need to burn it as an .iso with this; http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download to a dvd. When the iso is done, you boot from it and install.
CAVEAT; in doing so, you wipe your existing installation unless you have created a partition for it.

Ok I have created a partition using boot camp. I have also burnt the iso. So do I open the windows partition and install the dvd?

Sorry I am a bit of a luddite I only know how to design on a mac, not really sure about its innards so please bare with me.
