Download Windows 7 SP1 ISO ( 32bit / 64bit )


Download Official Windows 7 ISO images from Microsoft: Few days back , a friend of mine Accidentally broke his original windows 7 Installation Disk and unfortunately he had not bothered to create a backup copy of his windows 7 Disk beforehand. So i had to lend him the Original copy of Windows 7 disk. However if something similar happens with you and you cannot source out a windows 7 disk from your friends or relatives, continue reading on to find out how you can download a copy of the Windows 7 ISO image officially from Microsoft for free.

If you are stuck in a situation where you have lost your windows 7 installation disk or damaged it accidentally, you can always download a copy of your windows 7 ISO file from Microsoft itself. Many people are not aware of this and most of the time they usually end of downloading pirated copies of Microsoft windows 7 from various sites online.

I would always advise against downloading windows 7 from Illegal sites online. The main reason being most of these pirated copies of windows 7 are modified and have various spywares hidden in them, which are almost undetectable by most antiviruses. Using a pirated copy of windows 7 on your computer will compromise your private data to hackers and at the same time you will not be able to receive major updates for bug fixes and security.

Microsoft offers free downloads for most of its Operating systems. If you have a fast internet connection then you can easily download any version of windows 7 from the links below. These Windows 7 ISO files are hosted by Digital river, which is Microsoft’s official content delivery partner for Windows 7 .

All these Windows 7 ISO’s come with SP1 integrated in them and have a 30 day trial period. Once installed, you can use your Original windows 7 key to activate your windows 7 installation.

Note : Since most of these files are above 2GB in size, we advise you to use a Download manager like Free Download Manager to download these Windows 7 ISO images. After downloading these images, you can either burn these Windows 7 ISO images on a DVD or create a bootable Windows 7 USB flash drive to install Windows 7 on your PC.

How to Download Windows 7 ISO with a Genuine Product Key

Alternatively, for those who have a genuine Windows 7 key, here’s how you can use it to download a Windows 7 ISO for free. Alternatively, if your Windows PC came installed with genuine Windows 7, you can use a free program like Magic Jellybean Keyfinder to view your key.

Head over to and enter your genuine windows 7 product key and choose a language.

Note: You might have problem verifying OEM Windows 7 keys. If you face any problems contact Microsoft directly or your OEM key provider.

Wait for a few seconds for your key to be verified and you will be able to download a ISO image of Windows 7. Since the ISO image will be more than 2GB in size, it is recommended to use a Download manager to download it successfully. Once you’ve downloaded the ISO images, you can then use Rufus to create a bootable Windows 7 ISO and proceed with installing Windows 7 on your PC.

There are two options to choose from during the Windows 7 installation process:

  • Upgrade. This option replaces your current version of Windows with Windows 7, and keeps your files, settings, and programs in place on your computer.
  • Custom. This option replaces your current version of Windows with Windows 7, but doesn’t preserve your files, settings, and programs. It’s sometimes referred to as a clean installation for that reason.

  • Dear, I am looking a Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit without SP 1, any idea where I can download it from.
    Bless you for time & efforts.

  • Hi gomnosano We appreciate your effort to help our viewers , but Please don’t share anything related to piracy on this blog . We strictly don’t encourage piracy on our blog .

  • where can i download windows 7 all version iso x86 x64 bit trial version …. in single dvd.. can you give me a link please.. thanks

  • Downloading now, thanks but I need more bandwidth from the DL site, I have 50 Mbps avail. but the DL site is throttled back (745 Kpbs) been awhile I had to wait over an hour to get 2.4 gigs.
    No big, I’ll just hop in the ole Falcon and head over to Tatooine for a lil action 😉

  • Hi, What if my computer came pre-installed with windows 7 on it, and I don’t have the disk? Can I still use the ISO if I have the product key?

  • Thank you for this! I use VirtualBox a lot for a few courses I am taking for IT & networking, and I accidentally deleted my current VB machine and didn’t have the stupid ISO on a flash drive and didn’t feel like going on campus to get it. It’ll be worth the wait in download time just to not go out in the cold! haha.

  • Hi,
    I have downloaded and installed Win7 SP1 from the link you have provided. Its working fine. But the I dont have the key to activate and its asking to activate within 3 days. Please help.

  • Hi, just downloaded Windows 7 64-bit Professional x64 English
    and only realized during installation that is the Ultimate version not the Pro version

  • I also downloaded Windows 7 64-bit Professional x64 English but it is a Windows Ultimate x86. Fix the link please..

  • Will Win7 ultimate 64 install over my win7 ultimate 32. Using same key that have saved. But have lost my disks in a move.

  • Hello, can it be that 64 bit professional X64 Dutch is a ultimate version?
    Do you have a link for 64 bit professional Dutch

    • Hi Lovejeet, 64 bit professional X64 Dutch is in english. have you got a new link for dutch?
      SKU ain’t working .

  • My laptop broke(Win 7 Home Prem 64-bit) luckily i have my friend to fix it, but he only installs the Home Prem 32-bit. Can i upgrade it to 64 again? i also have the product key in sticker under the laptop, will it work? Thanks! and Sorry! its my first time doing this. >.<

    • Yes you can! Just follow the instructions on the page, mount the ISO image for the 64bit win 7 home premium, install it over the old 32 bit, and then register the 64 bit with your product key on your laptop! (:

      • No, he can’t! Once the x32 operating system is in place, it will destroy any older data he has (fresh install) to get the x64 OS running. His hardware needs to be able to support x64 also.

        • My hardware is originally 64. so i just need to make a bootable Win 7 HP 64-bit? and back up important things?

          • Yes you will need to backup all your important data and then install windows 7 by using a bootable 64 bit windows 7 USB flash drive.

  • hi lovejeet i have hp probook 6460b which is given by my collage they din give me the product key please help where can i find it its not at the backside of the laptop.pls help. thank you tons

    • you are welcome casimk. As for the windows 8 links, Microsoft is not providing windows 8 and windows 8.1 ISO images for download to the public. The only way to download window 8 ISO images is by using an original product key.

  • Would a 32 bit key (came with the 32 bit installation DVD) work with a 64 bit ISO? Assuming there both the Professional version.

  • Hi
    Can you tell me if these windows 7 iso’s come with the latest updates, or will i still need to download
    a million updates as well…thanks in advance….

    • Yes, but make sure you have the key or else it will be pointless since the user wouldnt be able to use for more than 30 days.

  • ive upgraded from vista to win7, but dont have a product key, on my laptop i have win7 can i use that key to activate this copy of win7 on this pc

    • Yes you can, if you dont have the product key with the sticker, then you must find it within your using a program. You should have a written copy of the Win7 Product Key, if you replaced it with Vista before, but thats not always the case.

  • Thank you! But what difference between Professional and Ultimate, what version of windows are better? I have bad hardware configuration on PC.

    • ultmate is the best professional is under ultmate and ultmate requires more power in the machine
      you may want to use home insted it will work better for you

      • Thank you very much for reply! I do another one if you can reply 🙂 My machine have 64bit support, but i never try, if i install xubuntu for 64bit him work better then xubuntu 32bit? Sorry for bad English and all this question.

        • If your PC supports 64-Bit, then yes you can do it. 64-Bit just has few more features in general, Xubuntu or not. Typically a 64-Bit will have more Processing power than a 32-Bit,, so will definately see a performance increase. Also, if your PC has a more than 3 GB of RAM then 32-Bit will not work since it doesnt support past 3 GB of RAM. But anyways, if you can put 64-Bit it is highly recomended to be used instead of 32. With 64-Bit you get more out of your PC.

  • ive tried 3 times to set windows up each time using ultmate pro and home and each time it said that i needed to make a proper partion to have this work and i tried like 10 times to make this work and is still did not work some one plaese help

  • starts to download fast but slows way down, drops to about 40 kb/sec and looks like it will take 12 hours to download. Does the server throttle the download speed and is there a way to speed it up?

      • lovejeet? i idolized yor knowledge about pc systems.
        i think you can help me i just wanna ask where i could download windows 7 ultimate 32/64bit with no expiration.
        thanks for your respons 🙂

          • I just downloaded ( since my official copy got stepped on) Win 7 Ultimate 64bit and it is NOT from Microsoft unless Microsoft enjoys including Crack folders and keygens. I loaded it up into MagicISO and could not open any of the folders, just the main directory. I thought these were genuine?
            I don’t think the “msft.” server is one from Microsoft. If it is, then someone need investigate Microsoft’s Integrity and find out who’s uploading these images calling them “Versions of Windows for Backup”. These may have “Rootkits or Spyware in them if they were gotten from illegal sites”

          • Hi, just take a look at the official Microsoft forums, you will find the moderators over there providing these links to everyone. These fields are completely safe and if you do a Google search you can see these links on many more reputed sites.

        • All of these windows 7 downloads come with a 30 day trial period. After the trial period is over you will need a genuine windows 7 key to activate them.

          • `oh bad 🙁 actualy lovejeet i have got my laptop from university and the didn’t give me any product key help me plz where can i find it its not at the backside of the laptop jst one thing written at both laptop back side and packing is that (Geniun windows 7 home basic 64 bit) pls help. bundle of thankx

  • I am trying to partition my hard drive on my Mac so i can still do some other work that I need Windows for but they keep saying its not 64 bit even when I downloaded the 64 bit. Any ideas?

  • Guys, I am running Vista Home premium 32 bit at the moment. What is the easiest way to upgrade to Windows 7. Will these downloads do it for me, and what about the activation key. Will it need one and where do I get it from.
    Thaks trev…

    • They might work if your PC has the Windows 7 Requirements, which are:
      1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
      1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
      16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
      DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
      To get the product key you must buy it from Microsoft, there is no free product key. If you have a old Win7 PC around that you dont use you can try use its product key, although you might want to deactivate the Windows 7 on that PC, just to make sure it works.

    • Hi Sriram, unfortunately Microsoft does not provide the official download links for windows 8 and windows 8.1. You will compulsorily need a genuine key to download ISO files of windows 8 and windows 8.1.

      • Yeah, I have a 3 year old Toshiba Satellite that had Win 7 on it, it had gotten so corrupt that it was blue screening. I had tried the Factory restore (Toshiba doesn’t include a restore disk) several times and it didn’t fix the problem. So I wiped the hard drive clean and installed Linux Mint 16 on it and had been using that for about 4 months without any problems, and it’s a nice system, but I have been wanted to put Windows back on it, and wasn’t sure if I would have to buy another licence for it. So this is definitely good news. Thanks.

        • The label says Windows 7 Home Prem OA (not sure what the OA stands for), so I downloaded Win 7 Home Premium x64 and installed it, but the product key didn’t work. Not sure why, but I reinstalled Linux Mint again.

  • Thank you Lovejeet. The Windows 7 ISO installed perfectly as a VM on my Fedora Workstation using gnome-boxes. My old Asus laptops activation key was able to successfully active the OS. I’ve a few dead laptops with old Windows 7 keys preinstalled on them. It’s nice to finally have them back online, rebranded as virtual machines at least. And the digitalriver download was extremely fast (a few minutes), at least for me over FiOS.

  • i download Ultimate x86 and try to install it on oracle virtualbox but during expending file process around 45% i got an error some windows files are corrupt or missing [error code: 0x80070570)] any body have idea how to fix this? is iso file right? plz help…..

  • I have downloaded Windows 7 Professional 64 bit,, I will install it on my Laptop.
    Now the question is that , I have a Product KEY of windows 7 PRO on the back of my Laptop..can I use that key to activate this window that i have downloaded from this site…Thanks

  • I’m downloading Windows 7 Professional 64bit to my pc ATM. My PC had Windows 8 64 bit but i downgraded it to Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit. Will I still be able to install Win 7 Professional 64bit to my PC?

  • What is an illegal site? You mean a torrent site? I torrented the ISO for maximum speed and just checked integrity using a checksum.

  • Hi thanks for the download link. Is the windows downloaded from these links are updated versions? I.e., Latest version containing all the updates up-to-date?

    • I am not sure if Microsoft has the provided the latest updates with these windows 7 SP1 copies, but you can download the updates once windows 7 is installed on your PC.

  • Hi, im currently just downloading home premium at the moment – do I need to burn to a disc or USB flash drive or can I just run the setup from the download section? iv had about 3 attempts at this already through various other download links all which have failed bringing up an error code of 0X0

    • Hi Lee,
      use any of the methods which seems to be easier for you. As for the errors it seems to be a problem with your hard disk. A quick Google search will help you find out a solution for the errors.

    • You usually get this error if the installation media or the hard disk is faulty. Try burning the ISO files at a lower speed ( 2x ) otherwise create and use a bootable windows 7 USB Flash drive.

  • Hi there, I am new to all of this, I am currently downloading the Windows 7 Professional 64bit iso image/file, Once the download is complete I then burn the image onto a disk right? Should i burn it onto a CD or DVD?? What must i do after i have done all these steps??
    Reply back ASAP!!

    • 1.Once you download the ISO file you will need to burn it to a DVD disc. After that you need to insert it in the DVD drive and reboot your PC.
      2. When you PC reboots, go to your PC’s bios and set the DVD drive with the first boot priority. save the settings and your PC will restart.
      3. When your PC boots up you will be prompted to press a key to start the windows installation process.

  • I have a new desk top PC that has windows 7 64 bit. Due to my software on my network I need 32 bit. I downloaded Windows 7 32 Bit X86 english, burn it to a DVD, and tried to install it. It won’t let me go back to a 32Bit. Does anyone know what I can do to get back to a 32 Bit system ? Any help will be Greatly Appreciated !

      • Hi Lovejeet, I have burned the ISO file onto a DVD disk, I have an OEM Valid Win 7 Professional 64bit Key, can i use this to Activate my Genuine windows 7 Trial??
        Reply back soon!

  • Guys I have downloaded Windows 7 Home Premium x86 and tried to create bootable USB. I have received Error extracting Windows 7 image. In log is stated: Error reading UDF file booten-usbootsect.exe.mui
    Can you help? Cheers

  • Hi Lovejeet, I have the ISO file burned onto a DVD disk, I have an OEM Win 7 Professional 64bit Valid Key, Can i use this to Activate my Genuine windows 7 Trial???

  • I am Downloading the 64 bit win 7 iso file from different laptop to try and fix my own ,will the
    Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool open the file to copy to dvd so i can try fix mine ?

  • Hi, my laptop was encrypted with some virus, thus I had to re-install my Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I followed the guidelines online in order to install the windows from a boot-able USB and successfully re-installed windows. However, within 2 days time I have started to experience the blue screen crash on the newly installed windows. I used the original product key of my previously purchased windows. Can you please suggest me what to do?

    • Blue screens are usually related to incompatible drivers and faulty hardware. Try installing all the required drivers for your laptop. such as the graphic, Ethernet, audio drivers etc.

  • “….download these Windows 8 ISO images. After downloading these images you can burn these Windows 7 ISO images on a DVD…” -above
    Are these ISOs of win 8 or win 7? I understand that win 7 is the desired installed version but I was just curious if one is able to create a prior install cd from next version on win. I didn’t think that was possible and would be good info to know.

  • I’ve been trying to download these and each time the download cuts off at 2.0GB. I see that the files are supposed to be 3.1GB, any idea why I’m getting cut off?

  • Hi lovejeet .Back again ,was on last night ..The reason i wanted to reboot windows was for the past few weeks my laptop (less than 2 years old )was getting slower and slower and cpu very slow, ended up near half hour to start , so thought full clear reinstall would sort this ..Managed to get the full iso file on flash as you recommended ,no probs there it is reinstalled but just as bad, been on black screen for ages just with arrow …Need Help ! Any Ideas ?

  • Hi I am using this to install on a laptop that has XP. I downloaded the file on that PC and then created a bootable flash drive. I am waiting for it all to load onto the flash now my question is do I just plug it in to the pc as is with XP on it or do I have to do wipe it out first?? Please help me I have been messing with this machine for 2 1/2 days now, thats why i decided to put windows 7 on it.

    • No, you don’t need to wipe anything. As soon as your bootable USB flash drive is prepared, you can connect the USB flash drive with you PC and then restart it. When your PC restarts, go to the bios and set the USB flash drive with first boot priority, Save the settings and restart. When your PC boots up again you will be prompted to press a key to start the windows 7 installation.

    • Hi, lovejeet. All these files belong to UDF file system. Even when I burned it to DVD, and verification was OK, the DVD did not boot. I was also not able to open the ISO using my PowerISO. You have any idea how to solve the problem?

  • Hi Lovejeet, just a quick question. I downloaded Win 7 pro 64 and burned the .iso to disk. Tried installing it on 3 different PC’s, all 3 PC’s boots successfully, but all 3 fails mid installation. Tried 2 different new DVD’s, tried writing at 2x speeds ect, not working. Yet, when I install a VM machine from the .iso it works flawless. What could cause it not to work on DVD? It hangs right where it starts to copy the windows setup files. Everything points to a faulty DVD but I’ve burnt 3 different copies from two machines (thought it might be my dvd writer.) I’m stumped.

      • Hey dude, thanks for the reply. Tried the USB method, but my computer just hangs after the POST process, right before it’s supposed to boot. I’ve done some googling, but it looks like I’m the only one having these types of issues. Therefor I have to deduce that the problem is somewhere on my side. I’ll tinker a bit with these images, and report back when I find the issue. I’ve found an original win 7 disk in the meantime, but this is bothering me why I cant get it to work. PS thanks for uploading these.

  • Shouldn’t these ISO downloads (Windows 7 professional 64 bit) be matched to a specific MD5 Checksum to assure validity?

    • Hi Marv,There is no need of validating these ISO files, as you can see all the files are hosted on Digital river which is Microsoft’s official content delivery partner for their online stores.

  • I have tried downloading a few of these with and without the download manager. All have stopped at 99%. is anyone else having this issue?

  • I am looking to reinstall my Windows 7 which I already own.
    I take it these images are the very latest versions that Microsoft is shipping (digitally), and include the latest updates up to that point?
    I won’t have to download 3 years worth of updates after installing these?

  • i have last 1 question 😀 Can I run Aero on that NTB what you writed in before comment? In windows index experience i have score 2.9 in graphics for aero. thanks 🙂

  • I’m using Vista at the moment on my laptop, are there files that will be lost if i upgrade to Windows 7 please?

    • If you are upgrading from windows vista to windows 7, then you wont need to backup any files since Windows 7 will keep all the files, settings, and programs from Windows Vista.

      • you WILL lose your data if you “upgrade” vista 32 with win7 64. You WIL NOT lose data if you upgrade vista 32 to win 7 32 OR vista 64 to win 7 64, but some applications may not work.
        lovejeet: you keep telling people who don’t quite undstand (based on previous posts) that 32 and 64 bit is okay with proper licence key. you MUST make them aware about data lose as described.
        Assume NOTHING from the posters and give them ALL the info so that they are aware. You mention “custom” which is OK, but expand this. Not all people know what custom means
        Either that or direct them to the proper MS link which describes all the scenarios.
        so in general:
        1.Any Repair/upgrade attempt 32->32 OR 64->64may involve data lose. ALWAYS backup you data before procedures.
        2. Any repair/upgrade attempt going from 32->64 will result in data lose as well as application renistall (if compatable). again, ALWAYS backup you data before procedures.
        further info here:

        • You are right, but i started this thread to share these windows 7 links. i didn’t had any idea of this post becoming too popular. Anyways your comments will really help a lot of our viewers, thank you mate. I will add your link to the post.

    • You buy it from Microsoft. 🙂 These are ISOs for anyone that may have lost their disc or the disc no longer works.

    • All these Windows 7 ISO’s come with all the SP1 updates. I Cant say how much old are these, since Microsoft doesn’t provide that information. Rest assured you will have to download very few updates after you install windows 7 from these ISO’s.

  • what do you do after you download the rar file and how to find the image file bc i done like it said and the intsall couldnt find the files

  • Hi there, the link you provided for the Home Premium 32bit is not correct. Could you please provide me with the correct link

  • Ye links are dead and its really frustating. I got a laptop where hard disk crashed went to get a new one wanted to install but noticed the cd i had for my pc is professional and laptop is home, i need to home 64 bit version in dutch (i dont care the langauge, but noticed when on my msdn account that they make a difference between dutch and english version) So dont know if the key will work with english version. Its just a key from a laptop with the sticker on the bottom. Been looking for over an hour for the original version of windows but only finding dead links or sites that arent from microsoft so im doubtfull if there cracked or original versions

    • hi Conder, unfortunately Microsoft doesn’t provide direct downloads for windows 8 and 8.1 ISO images. However if you have a genuine key, you can easily download ISO images for windows 8 and 8.1 .

  • Is it recommended to use download manager when downloading this type of file , I started the download without it and it looks to be a 4 hour download.

    • It generally depends upon your internet connection. You seem to have a stable internet connection, but for those who don’t have good internet connection, a download manager would be a better option, since it would allow you to stop and resume the download anytime.

  • AJ
    • 3 days ago

    Called Microsoft. They stated that they are still having server issues. I been told to wait and try again tomorrow..
    is this still true? or are these links working again?

  • The spanish version is the same as the english version (either in x64). Both booting with the same language….sorry for my english.

  • Hi. I’m downloading it right now. I’m going to install it on the new computer I’m buying tomorrow. Question is, can I download it now then save on a flash drive then install on the new computer? If yes, how? Thanks!

  • Upon inserting the disk (with Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit) it says “Enter Password”. That is the first thing to pop up. Any ideas?

  • Hello Lovejeet,
    Thank you for posting and providing the info. I downloaded what I thought was my appropriate version and after installation, I get stuck in a bootload error loop. Some of the errors say there are registry errors. Some are saying there are missing startup components. I’m using the Windows 64 bit home premium in English and trying to install this on a Samsung N150 plus notebook that had a Windows 7 Starter DOS but has since crashed.
    Any suggestions?

    • Hi Boca, i wont recommend you installing a 64 bit OS on your notebook. I checked out the specs and it seems that the 1GB of Ram on your notebook might hamper its performance. With my experience, i can point out the problem to be related with your hard disk. You should head over to the Microsoft forums and find out if anyone else has the same problem as yours.

  • computer noob here. so, after i download the version i had on my HP laptop, then putting it on a bootable usb flash drive, i should be able to install it on my mac using bootcamp? new to mac and was surprised to find there is no place to install a cd on this thing.

    • You must be using MacBook Air, right? Well on MBAs you can only install Windows using a bootable USB drive. If you already created one, go to spotlight search and type “Boot Camp Assistant”, and you can select both “Download the latest Windows support software from Apple” and “Install Windows 7 or later version”. You can then partition your drive and insert your USB drive, and you’re good to go.

  • I have a laptop that came with windows 7 32bit preinstalled and a key provided but no install disc and want to upgrade to 64bit. I suspect the key provided is an OEM key. Will I still be able to activate the 64bit windows 7 using this key?

  • I’ve just downloaded the file, but I’m not sure how to launch it: What programs do I need to open the files and launch it?

    • I downloaded the Windows 7 Pro English 32bit. Using the “RT Seven Lite” windows customization program and selecting the Win 7 Pro download from here as my windows installation disk media, after browsing to the media that I downloaded with this program, it asked me which Windows 7 installation did I want to customize? Windows 7 starter, Home Basic, Home Premium, Pro, Ultimate. So it looks like all of these downloads have all versions. You just might need to load it into the “RT Seven Lite 2.6.0” program, select task, by pass the customization options (deselect any that are selected). Then just select ISO bootable at the bottom of the menu and burn the selected version to a DVD disk or pick a connected pen drive to copy Win 7 and make it bootable from the pen drive. The RT7lite project is no longer supported but you can download the program here at the archived site:
      Be sure to download version 2.6.0 for 32 bit or 64 bit depending on the which Windows 7 installation disk you want to create.

  • I downloaded and installed the ISO after (ahem) a Motherboard replacement (upgrade Mo-bo/Chip system); but I want to register my Microsoft codes from my previous motherboard PC and then install my Ultimate Upgrade code later. But neither code lets me register. I had had to buy Ultimate Upgrade to get Windows in English [as the Japanese Windows 7 PC did not have an English language option]).
    Two problems?
    My PC was Japanese with a pre-installed Japanese language version of Windows 7 Home Premium and the ISO is in English; so that may be causing the conflict?
    When I go to Register at Microsoft it tells me I cannot do that and later gives me a number to call. But they could not register my genuine codes either (because they were used on my [ahem] previous motherboard), and they said they would put me through to some technical support and the phone went dead at their end.
    Can I register my Codes on my new motherboard or not?
    OR do I need to re-install the original language version for it to work?
    Any pointer appreciated.

    • You should be able to use your serial key to activate windows as long as you are using it on a single PC at a time. Since i am not well aware of this problem, A better place to find a solution to your problem would be the Microsoft forums.
      You might find a thread with a similar problem like yours or most probably the moderators might address your problem. here’s the link to the Microsoft forums:

      • This is incorrect. An OEM windows license is tied to the original hardware it was sold with. The license cannot be transferred to another computer. Once activated on a specific computer, the license is tied to that computer. Microsoft considers the motherboard as the computer. If the motherboard dies and needs to be replaced, the activation service will see it is a new computer (unless replaced with an exact match). But if you call the phone activation and explain to them your motherboard died and was replaced, they will usually activate (my past experiences). If the key being used is a Retail key, then yes, the license can be transferred to a different machine, provided it is only activated on one machine at a time. But given the previous comments about laptops and Acer computer, I would guess this in reference to an OEM install.

  • I just want a Windows 7 home basic ISO to install on a laptop that has a product key. Why is it so hard to find one!? Can anyone help?

  • thanks ^^ my mom asked me to install a windows7 on her computer,, but i coudn’t get windows 7 file..
    have a good day

      • I already have windows 7 enterprise but i wrongly removed mbr(master boot record) to kali linux now i cant open any windows as it says no operating system …can i use any other windows 7 home cd to restore my window and its partioning data…pls help me

  • Is each product key linked to one language?
    Or can I reinstall my windows with other language, using the same license I have purshased?

  • where is the windows 7 64 or 32 bit in chinese simplified or chinese traditional version??
    I downloaded the chinese version up site but there is only chinese taiwan language to choose.

  • I purchased Windows Professional 7 64 bit awhile ago as an upgrade. i just did a fresh install with the CD i ordered with it, but it says that my key is only good for upgrading not fresh installs. Any insight?

  • dear lovejeet,
    can you tell me if there is any official link to buy the product key online in india. microsoft store in india shows only windows 8.
    I used the above links to download and try win7 on my netbook. Its been great on my netbook. i want to purchase it right now i’ve 15 days left for trial version o end. Can you let me know from where i can buy a key?
    mail id: [email protected]

  • This is only half of the solution. I still need to find a legal/legitimate source for Win7 ***KEYS***. I’m trying to upgrade a homebuilt system from XP, as well as a couple Virtualbox VMs. Of course, I could just as easily tell my brother (who has the homebuilt system) that he’s going to have to move to Linux, since MS doesn’t want to sell a MSWin version that will run on his hardware (no NX bit in the CPU). I’d have no problem removing MSWin from another system.

  • i had windows 7 home basic i installed windows 7 ultimate 64 bit but i lost my network and dvd rom drivers and when i downloaded the drivers from another source they weren’t getting installed….

  • i get to the point where it says install windows, but then it says that the drivers are not in the file that i downloaded.

  • Thank you for the links.
    I find it VERY disappointing that these links are not in a Microsoft or Windows domain but that’s Microsoft for you.

      • Hi!
        I have the same problem. The download seem to get interrupted randomly. Several friends of mine with different kind of connections and equipment are also experiencing the same.
        It never interrupts at the same place twice.
        After getting interruptet the download manager is unable to resume the download. As if the download was fully finished, but it isn´t…

  • Ive used Win 7 USB tool, Rufus and unetbootin to try and make a bootable USB with these. Everytime it fails on extraction. Ive tried with all links

    • Are you sure the files are fully downloaded? I advice you to check your file size and then the original file size.

  • Where can i get Windows 7 Home Basic x86 original iso?
    I have the original serial key but I dont have the original instalation dvd,
    I tried one that I got from the torrent but it wont activate.
    Can you help me?

  • Would you help me? I Have Home basic 64 bit OEM License.
    I Need Offical Windows 7 Home basic 64 bit iso file please help!

  • i was surprised when the download worked! always a little cautious when downloading things from sites i dont normally use. good to know this ones legit. 🙂
    i didnt have any problems with anything either. it downloaded just fine and worked great with the windows usb tool. got an old laptop running win7 32bit from xp which was a HUGE improvement! like no comparison. thanks techverse. 🙂

  • yep the connection stops at 99.93% and refuses to connect with a download manager and a working internet. I’m guessing this is malware.

  • Thanks for providing these links. Although, I am using Free Download Manager the download stops as 99%!!!! Any clue how to get over this issue?

  • somethings wrong with the link, when i try to download Win7 Home Premium it say ”
    The Page or File You Requested Could Not Be Provided”
    the file must been broken or deleted, please fix the link

  • This is probably a long shot, but does anyone have a mirror for these ISOs while the Microsoft links are down? Was really hoping to set up Bootcamp today.

  • Links still broken. What does Microsoft have in mind? They prefer the ‘piratebay-like’ sharing? with keygen, viruses, trojans, …..?
    I’m about to give up, checking these links every hour since two days…

  • A short question: i’m trying to install Windows 7 on my iMac via Bootcamp which is why i need the ISO image, but would i need the SP1 image or would the non-SP1 image work just as well? Thanks

  • I downloaded the RTM to try to fix Win 7 HP (32-bit) on a friend’s laptop. I managed to get it to boot but when I click on Repair My Computer it just stops. Anyone have any ideas? Is this because it’s not SP1? I’m at a dead end. I used to never have issues with these.

  • Lovejeet,
    Just had to post response to complaints below.
    2% Rule applies (Got to be 2% smarter than whatever you’re working on).
    Had no problem with your RTM link download and install.
    Link works fine. Download is legit. Have installed WIN7 Ultimate 64-Bit fine with my license key.
    Also thank you for the update/explanation about MS download site.
    Went there from WIN7 Forums link and could not figure out why I could not get their download link to work.

  • The Page or File You Requested Could Not Be Provided
    The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.
    HTTP Error 404 – File or directory not found.progress site maintenance right?

  • Still down 4 days later. Is it possible these links are gone for good? What terrible timing for maintenance down time with XP support being discontinued very soon.

  • It would be helpful to post hashes for these iso files so that those who try alternate download means can check if their download is legitimate.

  • hi there .. i bought a used laptop which has windows 7 home basic 64 bit … i want to format it … but unfortunately i did not get the original disc that comes along with the package … any chances of finding the windows home basic 64 bit iso from anywhere?

    • Now a days u generally don’t get any original disc. There is a hidden partition inside your drive that stores the original windows its key and all the necessary drivers. Just go to system restore option of your BIOS and format it to the factory settings.

  • I have a oem version of windows 7 home premium 32bit, would I be able to download and use the 64bit version using my product key?
    I also have a laptop with windows 7 but it didn’t come with a disk, would I be able to download a copy from here to do a fresh install using the key that is written on the laptop?

    • Yes, you will be able to activate a 64bit copy of windows 7 premium using the product key from a 32bit version of windows 7 premium.
      As for the laptop, download and install the same version of windows 7 that came with your laptop and use the product key provided with your laptop to activate it.

    • You can either burn the downloaded windows 7 ISO to a DVD or create a bootable USB Flash Drive using it. Check the links provided in the article for instructions to create a bootable USB Flash Drive.

      • My laptop came with windows CD but now it is broken
        But I have COA sticker under my laptop which have product key.
        It means I had OEM version of windows.
        Now if I download this retail version iso from this site, will it work with my product key
        Will my windows activate successfully and become Geniune ?
        If not where can I find OEM version of windows.
        Please reply

        • The only one available is through a torrent file from the link above and will work with a OEM key? you install first then enter after the installation has finished, If you require the English version of Windows 7 .ISO I have one in my cloud account, please send email to: [email protected] : I will pass on the links as I can not post them on here.

  • ” Using pirated copies of windows 7 on your computer will compromise your private data to hackers and other cyber criminals”
    As opposed to Microsoft which doesn’t do any spying??? Keep dreaming.
    Any upgrade on any piece of software is designed to
    a] spy better on the end user,
    b] protect themselves from copying their stuff
    c] make stuff harder for the user in general. i.e. to “get away with stuff”.
    I don’t really begrudge them that, cos presumably they earn it, but …..
    jussayin … let’s not be naive about it. I see enough, too much gullibility in church as it is no need for more.

    • But with Micro$oft it’s legal as the government wants them to.
      And the Government won’t empty your account like hackers would. That is until the $ collapses.

  • Thanks dude, my refurb desktop only came with the 32-bit disk. It worked flawlessly, and the simple app you recommended to create a bootable USB with the iso is so easy to use, you made my life easy. Appreciate that, and please ignore all the idiotic bashers and cheapo who are clueless and gullible.

  • hey, just wondering, I have my activation key on the bottom of my laptop and I would like to reinstall windows 7 ultimate 64 bit using the link above and I was gonna use my activation key at the bottom of my laptop, would that work?

  • hey lovejeet, can I ask u a question? I am having this kind of problem that is, what happens if your os(windows) gets corrupted. And when i asked for help they say you can’t change or reinstall windows on that kind of PC because it has something to do with your os. Any idea? Thanks.

    • Hi Lonewolf, you can re install windows 7 on your computer without any problem. However, you should take a backup of your important data before that.

      • can i always reinstall windows? so it doesn’t matter how much i screw up my system i can always reinstall windows?

        • basically yes, as long you have the right same OS version and its key
          you can install on that very PC hundreds of time
          like lovejeet saying, backup first before reinstalling

  • dont noe if ur still answering question but i got one i need to convert my hard drive from mbr to gpt and it will not let me do it .. buy the way im trying to install windows 7 64 bit

    • First of all you go to Bios sating. your problem is there. This type issues is only for HP Note books. by the way Window 7 ultimate working perfectly i already downloaded and using this same OS 64 bit. I am also faced this type problem in my HP 15 Series notebook but i solved from Bios Sating
      you can try in Bios sating only.

  • Hello Lovejeet,Sir,Will the Windows 7 Setup ask me for a Product key when Installing?Please reply me soon sir,Awaiting your answer!!!!

      • Oh Thank you for the reply sir!!!I was waiting for your reply for a long time!!Thank you for replying sir,Thank you very much 🙂

  • Was unable to activate an OEM license key for Home Premium x64 on a new dell workstation using the product key on the sticker, and the ISO provided by digital river. By the looks of it, this has been the case for most people. I have personally tried this ISO for two completely different machines, both they wouldn’t activate with their OEM license because it is apparently a VL install. I can’t speak for the other ISO’s.

    • Meant to reply here
      I support Dell PCs in my job.
      DELL has an OEM disc which is usually BIOS locked. The Keys are different as you cannot usually use a Dell Windows key on a non-Dell disc, if you do it either will say it’s an invalid key or if it does work will later say (could be a few months later) “you may have a pirate copy of windows”, and then shut down soon after..
      Some Dell Windows discs install onto a Dell PC and never ask for the key, this is because it detects the BIOS and knows it’s on a Dell.
      Hope this helps.
      You can find the Dell discs on Ebay cheap if you need them, I have loads of them but you are not supposed to resell them so I don’t.

    • like i said before
      Licensing is pretty complex
      says you bought branded PC’s (dell, lenovo etc) the Windows they provided is ONE OFF license which means that Key will only work on that very PC and it will lock it’s hardware no matter what.
      you can reinstall same OS it’s pre-installed, provided the manufacturer gave you those recovery disc, if not your basically stuck.
      and those windows you can install on any PC, provided that the previous no longer running are RETAIL version, not OEM
      and that’s why it’s expensive

  • I downloaded the file for Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, but it will not work when I use it in the windows usb/dvd download tool. Any suggestions or tips?

    I have many Dell and HP/Compaq some Fujitsu and other OEM Windows Discs NT4, 2000, XP, Vista & 7 in 32 and 64 bit. If you want to host these as well I could make ISOs for you.

    • Thanks for your offer Sach. But as microsoft has advised to download windows 7 ISO’s from digital river, most windows users wont download the ISO files from anywhere except the Digitalriver’s severs.

    • You can burn the windows 7 ISO to a DVD or create a bootable USB flash drive, after that boot from them and you can proceed with the installation.

  • when i put in bios cd/dvd rw……….after that installation need to start but only start to fix this?when i start setup i can’t format,delete….. partitions

  • OK…I have tried 5 different times using the link downloads above as well as other files from other suggestion sites and I have tried winrar and rufus and the windows 7 usb/dvd download tool. Each and every attempt have one of two results…
    1. I get an error message saying “this is not a valid iso file.
    2. it goes to the “Setup is Starting” and the mouse pointer changes to the blue spinning ring and then seems to go no further. I get it to this point in the morning and at bedtime i just cover the screen in hopes that it will finally actually run the setup and when i wake up i look at it and it hasn’t changed.
    What am I missing here???

  • My laptop is 3 years old and
    windows crashed and goes to a screen that says a recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
    to insert windows installation disc and restart computer. It never came with install disc.
    Are these the links I would need to download and burn to disk to make a disc to fix the problem? the key code sticker on bottom of my laptop says home premium.
    been googling this problem for like a week and even on the Microsoft website found no help

    • Yes, you can download the Windows 7 Home Premium ISO from the links provided above and use it to install windows 7 on your laptop. The key code provided on the bottom of your laptop can be used to activate your windows 7 home premium installation.

  • I made a bootable USB and followed all the steps, but when the pc is collecting the information I get a message that a driver is missing. So I’m stuck now. Can someone help me out?

    • stuck cause your too stupid not collecting your own computer driver information
      if yours is laptop, google for the driver
      if desktop, google for each part driver

  • When I start my PC, it shows DQS training failed on previous boot, reverted to slower DRAM speed.Press F1.
    And After F1, Press F2 to load defualt values and continue.
    I discussed in many communities, all of them given wrong solutions.
    please give me correct solution. I have last faith on you.

    • another epitome of stupidity
      windows is Operating System, neither BIOS or UEFI have anything to do with it
      it seems likely more of hardware failure, and seriously, DRAM? are you trying to install windows 7/8 on that OLD COMPUTER HAVE YOU GONE MAD?

  • Thanks for your answer but that not work.I use Microsoft sc/dvs download tool to make bootable cd,then I go to bios.i now have windows 8.1 pro.That’s is best windows 20 sec.startup,25 sec shutdown.

  • hi..originally mine was a windows 7 home premium 32 bit lenovo laptop…through my friends dvd i upgraded to windows 8..and then to 8.1 pro preview version(not through official microsoft version) my laptop is not booting and when i am about to reset it asks for windows installation or recovery media…i tried my bootable dvd of win 7 32 bit..but its showing invalid…i have the product key of win 7..but not that of win 8.1…can anyone help me please

    • give a clear concise explanation
      nobody can help you if your english and grammar all over the place
      from what i can barely able to read
      you upgrade using pirate (or not) windows 8
      now you mess up the OS and ask for a recovery disc
      and you still want that windows 8 disc
      You just need to freshly install windows 7 back
      if you want windows 8 you need to purchase a key
      don’t forget to back up before doing fresh install

    • These downloads are only for people already owning a license, if you do so and it’s on a laptop the product / serial key usually will be on a sticker at the bottom of your laptop 😉

  • I have a Dell E6410 32-bit Win 7 Pro that is 64-Bit compatible. Can I download the “Windows 7 64-bit Professional x64 English” and use the key that came with the laptop? Will this work for me. Thanks – Jesse

    • Hi Jesse, you can definitely download the “Windows 7 64-bit Professional x64 English” ISO and use the CD key provided with your laptop to activate Windows 7.

  • I did google believe me but I just can’t find info.
    Have an old Vaio [been given one actually] with Win 7 Home Basic 64 bit. Have the sticker at the back but no discs. Can’t seem to find this version online to download.
    Need to format and reload. Any tips/link?

    • I have added the links for the Windows 7 SPI media refresh version as it is the latest one. Since you’re facing issues, i will also add a link for the normal version too.

  • I need “”windows 7 ultimate 32 bit ISO”” NON-EDITED version. whn I download any windows, all are edited version. I hate it. Please advice me and help me to get non-edited version.I have to create Bootable pendrive for set up my Lenovo notebook.

  • I’m not able to download with the links provided. I had almost completed the download 99% and some error occurred in IDM, and it restarted. And it did not restart from the beginning but from 24%. Cant find the reason. I’m trying again now.
    Does Microsoft provide any software to convert a folder into bootable image? All the softwares available are paid ones.

  • RichE
    I have a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate on a crashed hard drive and there is a .doc on the desk top that has the product key code. The crashed hard drive will load when connected externally via USB card for sata drives. How do I get this information and can I extract and use this version from my Toshiba crashed HDD and use it on an Acer Aspire One D250-1042?

    • Access the drive connected to another computer.
      The path will be something like……..
      *:\Users\*****\Desktop (win xp OS)
      replace * with your crashed hard drive letter, ***** replace with your username.
      Same the file to your computer\USB stick.

  • Hey LoveJeet, why i cant download the iso file ? It stops downloading at 10.7 mb. And with Free Download Manager stops at 99%. How can i download now this iso ?

  • hey i ve downloaded win 7 home preminum but while copying windows file at starting it says you have unplugger ur usb drive or cd/dvd and when used to boot from pendrive it asks for cd location for driver to be installed

  • Ok. Muchas gracias. He procedido a descargar el Windows 7 Home Premiun x 64 English y funciona perfecto…. Trabajando en mi laptop…..Muchas gracias por estos enlaces. Saludos desde la Ciudad de Loja en Ecuador…………..

  • Can I update a Windows 7 Professional 32 bits version with this ISO? (I mean, that this iso is of WIndows 7 SP1 and my installation is does not.
    The problem is that the current installation has got many windows errors, for example, I can’t update to SP-1 using Windows 7, I am obtaining blue screen error, and so on.
    Thank you.

    • Yes, but that will mean a full clean installation of Windows 7 SP1, any files, programs etc you have created\loaded will be lost, you will need to backup all of your personal data first.

      • But I want to upgrade. I don’t want a clean instalation, I need to preserver the files. What can I do to do an upgrade from my Windows 7 32 Professional installation?

        • If you are receiving a blue screen I would do a clean installation, I am not sure if it would work doing an upgrade option as I have never tried this, sorry.

  • Sorry, I mea that if I can use the “Upgrade” option (to preserver the files and programs).
    (Please, delete the website I can’t put that on the textbox.

  • Hi! I’m from Italy and I’m downloading windows7 x64. I have a problem. I already have W7 x86, can I just “upgrade” it to x64? Thank you in advance 🙂

    • There is no way to upgrade from a 32-bit copy of Windows to 64-bit, or vice versa. You must backup your data, create bootable media, and do a clean install. After you’re done, you’ll need to reinstall your programs and restore your data.

  • I just wanted to say thank-you so much for providing these .iso’s. I had recently upgraded from Windows 7 Home to Professional and in the process made the existing resource disc non-functional. It would say “you are using a different version of Windows”. I had a system crash that resulted in Windows breaking a bit and it happened fairly late in the evening so I couldn’t really do much if the solution involved purchasing something locally. Luckily I found the files you have so selflessly put up and maintained or I would be really screwed!

  • Hi Jeet,
    I have bought a laptop which has genuine Windows 7 Home Basic OA(32-bit)installed,but after some months i have upgraded it to Windows 7 Ultimate(32-bit).
    But i have lost the product key of the Ultimate edition,but still has the product key of the home basic edition.
    Please tell me how can i find it.
    Also,i am planning to upgrade to a 64-bit windows 7 edition,
    which iso should i download.
    Please reply.

  • hello, this was an interesting and very useful article. So, i have one a tiny bit different question. I am running windows 8.1 with the original genuine windows key. So i want to go back to windows 7 64bit, and the question is am i gonna be able to use my current windows 8 product key to register windows 7 that i download from a link provided.

    • no you cannot. each license key is unique to each windows version and it’s own variant
      it will never work if using windows 7 home premium on windows 7/8 ultimate
      same also windows 8 basic on windows 7/8 ultimate
      this is very very very common sense

  • If my pc is home premium, can I use the same product key behind my pc to activate it since it’s on the same pc? Or will the code be invalid?

    • You can use the product key on the label to activate, but has to be the same version, a Win 7 HP key will not activate other versions IE. Professional, install first without key, then enter after install has finished.

  • Thanks a lot. Yesterday, I installed this SP1 and Works well, but the system ask me for a key code. I used the previous but was not accepted. Do you have a valid key code for this versión? Please send it to me.

  • So Im trying to use the windows 7 dvd/ cd tool to open the iso but the iso does not appear on the app?
    Do I just plug the cd into my other computer that needs to be booted and it should work on that?

      • Hi Lovejeet. I have downloaded the zipped file from the download link provided and when I unzip it there are many files and folders but I don’t see the iso file, when I use rufus what file do I need to point it to for the bootable usb. thanks for all the info you are giving.

        • The above files are NOT zip files, they are .ISO, if you have winrar installed or similar zip software this picks up the .ISO and changes the icon, simply right click to burn in Vista/Win 7 or use imgburn or similar to burn to DVD disc.

  • For Lovejeet:
    I need to make a clean install on my Dell XPS 15Z and I wonder whether the product key on the backside of my laptop can be used in order to activate the Windows 7 Home Premium edition I just downloaded from the links you provide.
    Thank you very much for support, B.

    • Or you can use ABR or Advanced Tokens Manager to create a backup of the original activation if you still can load windows, simply start the program, click backup reinstall windows and then click restore, windows will be activated! (better to run this from a USB memory stick)

  • My ASUS R510LA is preloaded with Win 8, but I hate win8 so much I want win7 x64. But does the CD-key for win8 work for win7?

  • Just want to ask. Somehow after downloading the file, they don’t let me install the window. Error code: 0x0. Something like that. Thanks in advance.

    • this is legit and genuine source from microsoft and not pirated product
      pirate are not welcome, or face the rope of despair!!!

    • now were talking.
      by now, Microsoft no longer selling windows 7 directly (retail) and pushing up all vendors using windows 8.
      so it actually depends, in certain country (like mine) 3rd party are selling OEM license windows 7 for a real steal (really really cheap) however they are one off ( which mean cannot 1 license only 1 PC, cannot be reused) license and usually will stick to current hardware your using. and this usually fall to grey area as Microsoft deem not worth the time and money chasing people for abusing the license agreement.
      usually this license only available to vendor (as in PC manufacturer like Dell, HP, Lenovo etc) as they need license windows pre-install on their products (eg desktop, laptop, tablet etc)
      so basically your stuck. or else search around ebay or whatnot if some of those 3rd party selling the license (who knows the license is original from microsoft or pirate generate license, which burn your money, really).

    All good.
    From this page I downloaded
    Windows 7 64-bit Professional x64 English
    This wont accept my product key, saying the key is for upgrades only.
    Is this because I need the exact ISO X15-39604?
    Or is this never going to work?
    Bought the Laptop including an upgrade package at the time.
    I can’t find the X15 file anywhere.
    Hoping someone can help.

    SO DO DES LINKS WORK !!!!!!!!!

  • I need a serious help here!
    I want to install Windows 7 into my iMac OS X using BootCamp… I don’t have a CD/DVD drive, so I think I’ll need to get the Windows on a USB drive.
    The questions are:
    1. Where can I get Widows ISO file?
    2. How can I get a legitimate activation key?
    3. How can I get the Windows into the flash drive?
    4. Is it really going to work on my iMac?
    As you can see I’m not an expert in this field, so I really need your detailed help!
    Thanks in advance

    • an epitome of stupidity, literally.
      you want too do bootcamp, fine, everyone does (including me).
      aaaaaaaaaaaaaand you asking where to get the legit license key, don’t have a cd/dvd drive and doesn’t know your iMac can or cannot support windows? now that stupid.
      if you no expert stick to your iMac, or better off having another wintel laptops so you can be stupid forever.
      and bootcamp not for your average plebs, some more there is so much tutorial on the internet basically you just go to google and type “how to bootcamp mac” and there it is.
      wasn’t that so hard?.

    • You will have to edit the contents of the .ISO file and remove the ei.cfg file. After editing burn it to a blank DVD disk or put it on a thumb drive. Boot from it, this will reveal all editions of Windows 7, select the Home Basic edition.

  • i was looking a way to download legal iso of windows since now a lot of client nowadays either break or broke their pc and don’t keep record of their license and key.
    didn’t realize tho’ Microsoft so keen to keep the iso available for public.
    anyways, god bless OP for posting this pages, can believe the amount if ignorant moron spamming your comment section asking stupid and obvious question.

  • I have downloaded Windows 7 ultimate 64Bit-English and installed, while installing OS it asking product key please help me.

    • OP already EXPLAIN this is LEGIT AUTHENTIC COPY FROM MICROSOFT or you think this is another “oh free beer”
      keep it classy plebs

  • Hey I Download the windows after every 30 days i got a black screen and i hate reinstall and reinstall my stuff can u show me how fix that

    • There is a way to extend this 30 day to 120 days, to do this, run Command Prompt in the start menu (or search for it), and then right-click on it and choose run as administrator. (very important) Then simply type: slmgr -rearm : Within a few seconds you’ll normally see a dialog show up, saying that the command has completed successfully, at which point you’ll want to reboot, of course you’d normally want to do this near the end of the 30 days.

    • yeah obviously you think the product is “free” right?
      you need to have LEGIT AUTHENTIC product key or basically you a pirate
      yarrr matey!

    • I believe these are retail, but this makes no difference as you can install without the product key then input the key and activate after the installation has finished.

  • I want to upgrade from windows vista home premium service pack 2 to Windows 7 home premium. Can you tell me which link to download? Will I need to purchase W7 product key as well? I suppose the Vista product key will not work

    • Either of the Windows 7 Home Premium files from above depends if you need the 32 or 64 bit version, if you have a 64 bit processor and more than 3GB ram go with the x64 version from above.

    • a legitimate question, literally
      yes, you need to purchase windows 7 product key
      but windows 7 no longer selling in retail, depends on your country
      my country sells OEM only also not sure work with other country since license key also made for certain country

  • Hi Lovejeet, many thanks for the links for direct download. I was aware of the digital river site, however I ended up downloading the dutch version. Nice blog. Keep it up.

  • i had dell vostro i got windows 7 professional 64 bit cd with now it is showing some of the files have been missed, with out nowing it ihave started reinstalling os now it was not at all installing , i have downloaded professional 64 bit from your website but i could not copy image to disc showing some errors connot burn, whether can i install ultimate and use my old professional key for it

    • being grammar nazi i am;
      i “HAVE” not “HAD”
      sounds like you no longer have the laptop yet asking how to fix it, meh
      and no
      key are tied to their version eg professional key will only work with professional key
      want ultimate? buy a new license

  • hi Lovejeet thanxx for the windows but please give us a update for wifi,bluetooth,ithernet drivers i cannot find it on internet and your awesome man

    • the irony is that you can post here using internet and asking where you can get certain driver for certain unknown PC/laptop
      this is a tech blog, not your hotline technical support
      some plebs

  • I am downloading the 64bit version for my windows 7 32bit (i already checked compatbility, as i upgraded the specs) will my 32bit key win7 work with this 64 bit? thanks @lovejeet

      • you’re wrong
        i’ve been reading your post and seems mostly some one liner newbies post usually on some tech forum
        can you give some clarity to plebs querying such question?
        anyway as i said earlier
        key are tied to their variant
        if your key is eg home premium x86 aka 32bit means only will work with home premium x86 aka 32bit, want 64 bit? purchase a new license

        • Newbie? you couldn’t further from the truth if you tried……..Read his post then mine……'(I am downloading the 64bit version for my windows 7 32bit)’…….. version refers to the edition maybe I should have been more specific.

        • Quote ‘if your key is eg home premium x86 aka 32bit means only will work with home premium x86 aka 32bit, want 64 bit? purchase a new license’
          YOU’RE WRONG, think of it this way, how many product keys are in a retail box with the 32 & 64 bit discs??………………………………
          Yes, only the one.

  • Thanks for links!
    I had to replace my hard drive, so I’m starting from scratch. And I don’t necessarily know what I’m doing!
    I have an Acer Aspire One Netbook, which does not have a disk drive, so everything was preloaded on it, no installation disks or backups. I downloaded the Windows 7 Home Premium (that I have a Key for). Then I used the Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool, AND I tried Rufus to create a USB with the Windows image on it. But when I boot from the USB and start the install, I get the following error:
    ‘Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. Windows must be installed to a partition formatted as NTFS.
    Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. The partition is of an unrecognized type.’
    When I select the partitions, I’m not able to format them. And when I try to go ahead anyway, I get this:
    ‘To install the device driver needed to access your hard drive, insert the installation media containing the driver files, then click OK.’
    Help! I’m stuck!

  • I have little problem with the windows 7 ultimate x64, every time when it rises, it keep updating my system, despite the fact that I have put “never check” for updates. Does anybody knows the solution?

  • by looking at your post, you actually trying to install windows on the USB drive, not the laptop since USB drive use FAT32 extension and not NTFS

  • Hi Lovejeet! Do you prefer Windows 8.1 or Windows 7? I would want to know a realistic answer from a Techie like you.

  • Hi Lovejeet,
    I have Gateway NV54 designed for win 7. I downloaded the iso. I have the key sticker key. Will that valid and genuine my laptop.
    Thank you in advance!

  • when using the Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool to transfer X17-58996.iso I get an error saying that the selected file is not a valid iso file. please select a valid iso file and try again. please help.

  • I have a ” toshiba ” satellite C660-1kj , it came with windows 7 home premium 64 bits and the serial number was on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop ,, now i have got a new ” acer ” laptop ,, my question is that , can i use my serial number with the version which you have put the link for it with my acer laptop ?? thanks in advance

  • Hi Lovejeet! Well, this iso doesn’t work for me. I have Windows Professional 32bit and I try to upgrade it to 64bit. I burn the iso but when I restart my computer, nothing happens at all!

    • Was the .ISO burned correctly, if you place the disc in the drive can you see folders and files on there or is the .ISO file on the disc only? The computer may have a boot menu instead of going into BIOS, depending on the manufacturer it may be the ESC, F2 or even F12 key.

  • I have win7 proffessional 32 bit license key but i want to use 64 bit OS, using this 32 bit key.
    How to activate win 7 in this case?

  • I have Windows 7 64-bit with a license for my desktop. I have an older laptop that will run Windows 7 32-bit. Can I use the key from my 64-bit version on the 32-bit Windows 7 version I plan on putting on my laptop? My laptop currently has Vista on it.

  • This is my first windows installation. How do I get the product Key, where can I buy it? I am using parallels on Macbook. So I do not have the serial key. Please help.

    • You will need to buy an activation key.
      Why would you want to get Windows if you have Ubuntu though? Linux is so much better than Windows. Mind you I’m getting Window 7 as a downgrade to Windows 8.1 so that I can sell my computer. 😉

  • These useless downloads don’t have Network Drivers. Used the links to re-install windows 7 on my alienware, and now i can’t connect to the internet because windows can’t detect a network driver or an ethernet controller. These downloads are terrible. I would be grateful if they actually worked, but they don’t. Please work to take them down.

    • your down right pissed, so pissed that your stupidity overblown here
      Microsoft provide Operating System, it’s up to the Computer Manufacturer to supply the Driver
      in which you fail to differentiate which one
      which also i doubt what you were doing actually or knowledgeable enough

  • didn´t work. missing driver for cd/dvd. i havethe latest one but it still says you need to ckeck for driver on istallationsmedia

    • Forget about it. Use one of the tools:
      – Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool
      – Uiversal USB Installer
      – other 🙂
      to put .iso into USB drive. Check BIOS to be sure that USB is the first drive on the boot list. Then install your windows from pendrive.

    • USB check, didn´t work. so…
      do it again do it right. downloaded “Free download manager” and download same ISO-file now we are taking the same language 🙂 it´s working 🙂 Thank´s

  • LoveJeet, I’m downloading the ISO Win7 ultimate my machine came with Home Premium will the key on my system unlock this version or do I need to download the same version?
    Thank you,

  • Hallo,
    i have learned a lot on this site
    is there a possibility to integrated all ms updates in to iso DVD of windos 7 ?

    • Yep, the retail version lets a person have both [32bit and 64bit] usually but it was around $199.00 to $250.00

    • It requires a clean installation, you can download the 32bit version. The 64bit key will work fine on the 32bit version.

  • Is this already an UPDATED version of Windows 7? I don’t want to download all those hundreds of updates that came to the world since SP1.

  • hai friends i have an windows professional 32 bit key , i want to use this key for win professional 64 bit os is it works or not.

  • I tried the non-destructive fix for windows 7 pro 64 bit using my original disk and and two downloaded versions through two different sources of the digital river provider for Microsoft. All thing go well until at some point of gathering the needed file I get the following error : Windows cannot copy files required for installation. files may be corrupt or missing. Make sure all the files required for installation are available and restart the installation. Error code 0x80070241. all supposedly have SP1 present. This operating system is currently installed but giving me some issues, I have all the product keys. Any thoughts would be certainly appreciated.

    • It could mean: Error code 0x80070241 indicates that the required installation files may be corrupted or unable to copy. This kind of issue may be caused by corrupted media files, defective DVD drive?, defective hard disk?

  • Thanks Paul, But like I said, I tried the media files from three separate sources should at least eliminate the corrupted media files, as to the other two, I downloaded and installed the download manager with no issues (defective hard disk), I then burnedverified the iso file twice. (defective dvd). So really I’m still at a loss ,where to go from here?

  • I just used one of these ISO files to do a clean install. However, when I went to activate Windows using the product key on the computer, it told me it was invalid. I looked that up and according to the Help info from Microsoft, if the OS wasn’t originally installed with SP1 included then the key won’t work. Is this true? Will I have to start completely over on the install? I’ve already run all the updates that were available too. Please help.

      • On the COA label. I used the ISO from this site for Win 7 Home Premium. I noticed after the key failed that Ultimate was installed. Is that link incorrect, and could that be the problem?

          • I noticed that these ISOs have SP1 included. Will that also cause the key to fail? How can I tell what exact OS was the original and if it included SP1?

  • I have 2 updates I need to do.
    The first is an upgrade from Windows Vista Business (64-bit) to Windows 7 (64-bit).
    From what I can understand this is the easy one. I just have to purchase a Windows 7 Key (Professional to match Vista Business) and use the ISO file for this to upgrade my current system. So hopefully this will keep all my files and programs ect and just upgrade the OS…?
    The second upgrade is a little more annoying. I have to upgrade a Windows 7 32-bit to a Windows 7 64-bit. So as far as I’m aware I don’t have to purchase a licence as I’ve already got a licence for Windows 7 but I do have to do a clean re-install which will wipe all of my programs and files. But will I have problems when I’m trying to use the licence key as this has already been used (even though it is the same PC)??

    • On the second, the key should be fine as it is on exactly the same hardware, there is program out there that can store the windows activation (advanced windows token manager) not sure tho if it works when changing from 32 to 64 bit.

  • OMFG, почему вы не добавить русский в списке? Как я русский, я не знаю много английского или любого другого языка.

  • Hi, When i download Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium X64 English, i am geting Only windows 7 64-bit Preminum… please provide the right link ASAP

    • Do a ‘Google’ search for, windows 7 .iso techdows , this should be the top result, there is links for windows 7 .ISO on that page, sorry but can not post links.
