Win 7 install with a difference....

I have an Acer Travel mate lap-top which has a German version of Vista running on it. In a couple of days I shall be doing a CLEAN install of Win 7 in English. As the German OS was preinstalled, I did not receive a Recovery disc with it, or a program key. I have a couple of questions:

1. Will I be asked to input the Vista key during the install or not.

2. How do I make a bootable back up disc should anything go wrong with the install, so that I can revert back to where I was, or at least back to the Vista OS.

I don't have very many important files or programs on the Lap-top so that does not make much difference.
