I can't find my Win7 installation disk, most annoying.

Can anyone tell me where I can get a download for Win7 Pro please?

You can find technet ISOs on TPB (non hacked versions, you need to have a key) just go there and have a look.

Legally there are no ISO public downloads of W7.

The exception is the trial Enterprise edition From Microsoft (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/cc442495), but its key is hard coded, and you cant change it to another version.

The legal downloads you can get from Technet or MSDN are retail versions, and you need to pay a subscription. There are ways to turn the ISO's into universal DVD's that will install any version or take any legal product key, OEM, Retail or Volume etc.

Best way is to know someone who has the version you need and borrow their DVD, then install using your own product key.

OK, :eek: dont know exactly how when or why, but found These here direct downloads (http://techpp.com/2009/11/11/download-windows-7-iso-official-direct-download-links/) - (see what happens when you get bored waiting for PC's to scan LOL ) dont know if they are the real thing or not, but digitalriver is tied into MS somehow from memory, and they do download, I started one then stopped it..

The sizes are about the right. "IF" they are legit, You may need to run the Eicfg removal tool (http://lifehacker.com/5438005/eicfg-removal-utility-lets-you-use-any-product-key-with-your-windows-7-disc) on the ISO first to make them a all in one DVD, that will accept any legal key/version.

Stay in touch -- let us all know if they are legit or not :p
