You could remove the optical drive from the other computer if possible and if it's a SATA drive, then install your OS that way.

If not you can use that existing computer and online guides to make a bootable USB drive loaded with the installation files from your Windows 7 disc, then install with the USB drive.

Could i possibly replace the 2.5inch hdd in my laptop with the 2.5inch SSD then put the windows 7 disk in and install it like that?
