Well, Microsoft will let you download ISOs to do a Windows install,
although you'll need a product key to activate it:
I went through this procedure a while back when I bought a ThinkPad
with Windows installed. I installed Debian on the bare metal, and then
used the ISO (burned onto a USB, with a simple dd, IIRC) to reinstall
Windows in a qemu-kvm VM.
