By ripping the disc you already own or going to the website of your OEM or to Microsoft's website. But if you do not own a copy of Windows 7 that you are allowed to use on another device then the simple answer is "you can't".

Be aware though that ***dows is proprietry stuff, I think the gang at Redmond will frown upon you "ripping" their stuff...

Yes, just to clarify that when I typed "By ripping a disc you already own." I was referring to making a .iso file of an install disk you have a license for in order to more easily install it than running from the optical medium. After all with Windows nowadays it's generally the license to run an instance you're buying not the disc.
