Installing Windows 7 into a Brand New HDD - (Old Drive was damaged)

So here's the story.


One of our staff knocked a ThinkCentre A2U onto the floor.  It appears that the HDD is damaged beyond repair - we can't get past the BIOS screen.


Easy enough to buy a new HDD, but how to install Windows 7?  We have the Product Key, but Microsoft rejected it saying that we needed to contact the manufacturer - Lenovo.


So here we are.  DigitalRiver is no help, it just refers back to Microsoft.


Any suggestions, guys?
