I need to download a ISO copy of Windows 7 and burn it to DVD and then install it on my PC

Ideally I want Windows 7 Enterprise or Ultimate both 32 bit so i can have bitlocker feature.

I m not asking for any bootleg copy or pirated version.
I need a trial or evaluation version that is fully functional.

Microsoft site now seems to only redirect to Windows 8.1 links.

I dont want to try downloading some website that maybe dodgy and waste bandwidth to dowload a huge file only to find the
file is invalid corrupt etc

If someone knows a site that works please let me know

Thanks.

Do you have a key? There is a legit site with Win7 ISO's on it, but you need a key to activate it. They're full versions not trial versions of Win7

Sorry i don't have keys. I m only wanting to download and install it for temporary use for testing some software and then wipe the disk clean in about 30 - 60 days

I found this googling and will give it a try if nothing else comes up i guess

Not sure though if these are trial or will refuse to work at all if no key is provided

Those versions are full not trial. But the enterprise version isnt there. And the Ultimate may install without a key. I dont know. Looks like the Win7 enterprise version on the MS site goes to an 8.1 enterprise site

You can get the files from Digital River still, MS official site Windows-7-Digital-River-direct-links (http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/14709-Windows-7-Digital-River-direct-links-Multiple-Languages-X86-amp-X64/page72) You can install without a product key, OR use the default product Keys here (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff793421.aspx) These are keys that are embedded in Windows and allow system builders to install Windows before sysprepping and send out to customers. They wont activate, you HAVE to enter a purchased product key, but they will only last for 30 days unless you rearm, which you can do 3 times extending out to 180 days.

There are other keys available for Home editions as well, but you dont want those by your question.
