  1. One day I without any reason had copied the files from a windows 7 dvd along with the activation code on my pc. But unfortunately the original disk is missing now. Can I now make a bootable dvd from that copied file of the disk? And how ?

    A copy of the files on the disk won't be bootable. Saving the disk as an ISO file would have enabled you to make a usable disk. You should be able to download an ISO for Windows 7 from Microsoft.

    You can create a bootable DVD with some third-party backup tools. pretty sure they can do it well. free ones are easeus todo backup free, Macrium reflect free and paragon backup&recovery free.
