    You can download the x64 Windows 7 and remove the ei.cfg from the \sources\ folder on the iso and it will then contain all versions of 7. You can then use Daz loader or a valid key to activate. Just be sure to get the drivers for your laptop.

    Windows Loader

    Yes, should pass all checks and allow you to download any updates:)

    If it is a legit key it should be ok but if it is one found on the net it will eventually get blacklisted so it would be useless.
