Windows 7 ISOs (all versions) with SHA hashes for verification, on someone's private Google Drive.

 

Read the Details.txt file in the respective version folders.

You can also download directly from Microsoft with your product key: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows7

Microsoft only allow Windows 7 ISO downloading for Retail and System Builder product keys.

 

If your system came with Windows preinstalled (Dell, HP, etc.) that make it an OEM system and you will not be downloading any ISOs from Microsoft with your OEM product key.

Sorry for the late response guys, appreciate the help.

 

Yes, no downloading pre-installed keys.

 

Britechguy, something seems off with those iso files in your link, I tried creating bootable sub from them with both Rufus and Imgburn but something is wrong with those files?

Did you extract the ISO from the RAR file first?

Yes, no boot file is showing in the extracted folder. Matter of fact some strange stuff here with this file. I extracted it and it showed a regular folder when I double click on that folder it shows a zipped folder, when I double click on that it shows back the winrar file.

I downloaded the 64bit Pro iso and was able to boot the DVD and a USB flash drive created with Rufus. I had to burn at 4x using Imgburn before the DVD booted successfully.

Thx. I went a different route, I used the instructions I found here:

to to create an iso from my win7 disk, to be sure.
