Is win 7 the same as XP, as long as I have a genuine code and disk will do?

Yes it will work.

You can d/load and burn your own DVD. W7.iso ClickHere Official download links, scroll down to the English(usa) version and get the SP1 U (media refresh) one as that already has SP1 on so you don't have as much updating to do.
