If Windows 7 cam pre-installed on your other laptop, you will have to repurchase Windows 7 which is unfortunate. There are two versions of Windows 7: upgrade and full. The upgrade version is much cheaper than the full version and technically doesn't support Bootcamp because it requires a previous version to upgrade from. There are a couple of easy work arounds to get Windows 7 upgrade to activate on your Mac without having to shell out for the full version.

Windows license is an MS issue, not a Bootcamp issue. MS says "one install per license".
To install in Bootcamp, you need a copy of Windows install with *ALL* drivers, be it a full (install as often as you wish) or OEM/"System Builder" (install once, but beg permission to install on another system). Windows disk that came with your old Dell or HP or Gateway only has drivers for that system.
