    - No. At least there's no legal way. Discussing Illegal ways are forbidden at this forum.
    Legally you can buy Windows 7 from Microsoft partners as a full retail version or as an upgrade.

    Legally you can evaluate Windows 7 Enterprise 90-day Trial

    can I use the RECOVERY partition or create a new one to save basic programs I have and then install window7

    - You can free up disk space on C, then shrink C partition, and from the new unallocated space you can create a new partition (you want 40 Gb or more) to install windows on.
