I have my key which I obtained completely legally but don't have a disk.

I just tried installing off an ultimate dvd but that wouldnt take my key (tried on the off chance)

So if anyone could direct me towards one thatd be much appreciated, ive tried torrents but they are all cracked versions of ultimate which is no good to me.

I had a quick look on microsoft hoping they would have some option to enter your key and download an iso but doesnt seem there is

Any help please!

I dont think any ISO from any torrent will be legal. Only way youre going to get one is figure out what version the key is for. And either buy it, or borrow from someone. Dont think you'll find it online

I dont see a problem with downloadin an iso, I have the key. If i was looking to pirate I would just do that but Im not.

I dont know anyone with a copy

Depending on the type of key, the retail version which is what you get from places like Technet / MSDN, wont work with the OEM.

If you got a key from such a place you will need the same version of ISO.

What if you have the cd but misplaced the key?? I've got the OEM of XP Home. But cant find the key for it. Might give it to the sis in Oz. Since I no longer use this cd

Open the ISO and delete the ei.cfg file in the /sources folder, then save it and burn to DVD.

Then you'll be able to choose whatever version you have (in your case Pro) :)

AFAIK this is not illegal.

Are you 100% about that? Cos thatd be excellent. When I installed with the ultimate disk I thought it might of let me use my Pro key because ultimate has everything Pro has, but jsut wouldnt installed the extra features.

Il go buy me some dvds and give it a shot

You can download some freeware that will covert it for you, will google and post back

Edit: Have a look at this (http://code.kliu.org/misc/win7utils/)

Easier way if you have the ISO download at the bottom of The article (http://www.mydigitallife.info/2009/11/01/create-windows-7-universal-iso-with-all-editions-selection-on-install-with-ei-cfg-removal-utility/) - tried it and it worked on a OEM ISO, as per the article.

I heard a rumour Microsoft have even been telling people this when you call them.
