Obviously it would cost you, but you could always boot from an external USB DVD drive. BestBuy has 'em refurbished for as little as $30US.. And I believe Google should reveal tools to create a legitimate Windows 7 installer bootable from a USB thumb drive.

I got my "clean" copy from this website. I scanned it with Microsoft Security Essentials and it didn't detect any malware. I used an ISO extractor and copied the files onto the usb, then booted from the usb. You won't need bigger than a 4gb usb. I would recommend creating a datasafe usb backup so you can go back to factory state just in case anything goes wrong; that one needs 8gb.
You can also use MagicDisc to create a virtual dvd drive on your hard drive and mount and unmount ISOs and have them act as a bootable disc.
