Comment on Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River by josh Windows Aug 10, 2011 MDL Editorial Team 153 Comments Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River With the release of Windows 7 SP1, Microsoft has also updated the Windows 7 DVD media ISO image distributed by Digital River for online order fulfillment. Digital River is Microsoft’s partner for fulfillment on online distribution for downloadable Microsoft products. The Windows 7 ISO images hosted on Digital River is genuine and official version, and the downloads from the server is legal. It’s after all one of the official channel where end-users who purchase a license (product key) for Windows 7 get the setup installation files. Anyway, without a genuine and legally purchased product key, you can’t get Windows 7 activated, and Windows 7 will only run as evaluation copy for up to 30 days. The latest version of Windows 7 DVD image available is of media refresh version, which commonly known as Windows 7 SP1-U (Media Refresh). Microsoft released the media refresh version of Windows 7 DVD media to fix a rare bug related to invalid computer name when small set of computer names returned error when used to install Windows 7. Otherwise, the Windows 7 with SP1 and Windows 7 with SP1-U (Media Refresh) is completely the same.

Lloyd HOW TO INSTALL WINDOWS! 1st: Download the same version you already have, e.g home premium also make sure you use the correct bit, x32 or x64. 2nd: Download, http://www.pendrivelinux.com/downloads/Universal-USB-Installer/Universal-USB-Installer-1.9.3.1.exe 3rd: Plug in your usb flash drive, ( must be atleast 8gb ) 4th: Run the universal usb installer and in step 1, scroll to the bottom and select windows 7 installer, in step 2 select the windows iso you just downloaded, in step 3 select you flash drive and also select format and click Create. Once completely, you can boot from that flash drive to do a fresh install and once installed, USE YOUR GENUINE PRODUCT KEY FOR ACTIVATION. These are completely legit files!. used them for nearly 2 years and even the other day ( i bought a new laptop that came with win7 and bloatware so i used this to do a fresh install and used my key ) PERFECT! ——————————————————————————————————————————– Altan Nolan “1st: Download the same version you already have, e.g home premium also make sure you use the correct bit, x32 or x64.” 1st. a) I don´t have a one right now, I´ve XP. How do I do in this case? b) How do I know if x32 or x64 is correct?? Dianne DeSha These are disks to reinstall an already purchased legal version of Win7. If you want, you could pick a version (look at Microsoft’s site for comparisons and prices) and then buy a license key from the Help Center within a week (or is it 30 days trial?). But if you’re starting new with Win 7, it makes more sense to simply purchase a copy in the normal way rather than do a reinstall-then-purchase routine with these. (If you have a souped-up 64 bit machine, you’d probably know it. Most likely you have a standard [i.e., “x86″] machine.) Amit Bajaj i needed Window 7 home basic………………………….. i have deleted my recovery drive and hp softwares , help me to fix this Tony K After many problems the following worked for me in installing a new version of Windows on my laptop using your USB flash drive. Please note that these instructions REQUIRE that you have had a legal version of Windows on a computer. First a background on the scenario for successfully loading Windows 7 SP1. – My laptops hard disc crashed. I purchased a new hard disc (SATA). I had many USB flash drives. – My repair discs that I burned when my laptop was new DID NOT WORK. This seems to be a common issue! The following steps did successfully install Windows 7 SP1 Home Premium Edition using your USB flash drive. But first you will need the following. – Look at your laptop/desktop. There should be a 25 digit Windows key code somewhere. On laptops it is on the bottom. You must have this key code for this process to work. – Have an 8 GB or more USB disc available and completely empty. – You must have use a working Windows 7 or 8 computer for the following. Steps – Download the appropriate Windows ISO image from this website. It is important to download the correct version since the Windows key codes on your computer match a specific version. Most computers purchased at Best Buy etc… between 2010 and 2012 use Windows 7 Home Premium SP1-U ISO. I used the following: “English x64: X17-58997.iso”. – Download the ISO file from this website on a Windows 7 or 8 computer and copy to any folder. I created a folder called “test” and placed the ISO image called “X17-58996.iso” in the test folder. – Go to the following Microsoft website and download the USB bootable software tool.http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msstore/html/pbPage.Help_Win7_usbdvd_dwnTool – Insert an empty USB (8 GB or more) Flash Drive in your Windows 7 or 8 computer. – Copy the following to any director such as “test”. Run the software file ‘Windows7-USB-DVD-tool.exe”. This will create a new program that you can find in “Start – Windows 7 USB DVD DOWNLOAD TOOL”. Start the program! – Windows 7 USB DVD DOWNLOAD TOOL program will ask you where your Windows 7 ISO file is. For example, the “English x64: X17-58997.iso” in your “test” folder. – Windows 7 USB DVD DOWNLOAD TOOL will ask you where is the blank USB flash drive? Navigate to the USB flash drive. The program will re-format the USB drive then copy the ISO image from above to make a bootable Windows 7 SP1 USB Flash drive. It took my computer about 5 minutes to do this task! – Windows 7 USB DVD DOWNLOAD TOOL will notify you when it is finished. If the program states that it completed it successfully then you have a bootable Windows 7 SP1 USB flash drive! – Go to the computer you are repairing. Insert the Windows 7 SP1 USB flash drive into the USB port. – Start your computer and hit whatever series of buttons (F12, F2 etc…) to change your boot drive to “USB”. – After saving your changes, Windows 7 Installation should start! Again you will need your 25 digit Windows key code to successfully install the Windows OS. The above should work for most Windows 7 users however there are differences in hardware etc… that may cause an issue. Good Luck!!! Wilner Is it possible to put this on my external hard drive? I don’t have that much space in my usb. sean Tony K is the Man!!! worked like a charm almost two easy! LOL Now!Lets try & do it again LOL jpclasant Thank you very much for the OS.

Penguin0 What? no Enterprise links ?!? jurgen74 hey I am looking for a few days of Windows 7 Home Premium, Norsk, 64-bit, has anyone of you have a link Chaitra Will it work if i download a 32 bit iso but have a product key for 64 bit genuine win 7? Harmeet Singh i have a window 7 Home Premium OA edition , i have a product ke , is th product key is valid for Home Premium edition in this web site? fookraa For the file “”English x86: X17-59463.iso”” that i downloaded… here are the checksums: MD5 : 2572274e6b0acf4ed1b502b175f2c2db SHA1 : 65fce0f445d9bf7e78e43f17e441e08c63722657 Hope this will help, HOWEVER i request you all to verify and post your checksums too… Jan The official checksums for all files can be looked up on Technet. Ignotus I have the same SHA1 hash that you posted. I also verified these at Microsoft TechNet, which provides the SHA1 hashes. These are the TechNet hashes for the two files that I downloaded (Ultimate): English x86: X17-59463.iso = 65FCE0F445D9BF7E78E43F17E441E08C63722657 English x64: X17-59465.iso = 36AE90DEFBAD9D9539E649B193AE573B77A71C83 The hashes for both of the downloads do match the TechNet hashes, so those two files at least are correct. I plan to use them to build a universal installer that can install all versions of Windows 7 32bit or 64bit. I am going to use a tool from http://joshcellsoftwares.com/products/winaiomaker/. Will try to remember to post back with how it turns out. I typically use Rufus http://rufus.akeo.ie/ to convert the iso to a bootable USB thumb drive. It has never let me down with various Linux iso files or Vista and Win 7 iso files. EDIT: Building the AIO iso using the winaiomaker software seems to have worked fine. It’s not completely intuitive, but it’s not difficult to figure out. I started the install selecting Ultimate x86 the first time and Ultimate x64 the other time (exited out at the select partition screen). Now I need to finish prepping my PC and go ahead and do the fresh install. Christine I downloaded the right iso but when I mount using magicISO and click install I get this message: Windows could not retrieve information about the disks on this computer. I’m lost as to what this means. I got my hp in June, and somehow deleted the F11 recovery options so I was trying to find a legit copy to install since I do have a product key and don’t need a hacked version. But something isn’t working and I would really appreciate this being resolved asap. thank you Raymond You should try an OEM version. That or find the drivers for the HD for your computer so you can install. Tim You have to burn the file to a dvd, put the dvd into the cd rom and reboot the computer to install it Jan If you are trying to upgrade Windows then you need to enable the virtual disk service. 1. Click Start / Run and type SERVICES.MSC 2. Look for the Virtual Disk Service 3. Right click it and choose “Properties” 4. Make sure the Startup Type is Automatic, then click the Start button. 5. Reboot and try the upgrade again. James Christie, try using the following program. It is MS Supported for their RT/WinPE coding. http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msstore/html/pbPage.Help_Win7_usbdvd_dwnTool Michael Christine, these ISOs are not to be mounted in some ISO program. they are to be burned to a DVD and then started from the DVD for Install. What you are trying to do is an upgrade,NOT GOING TO WORK. you need a physical medium to work with these ISOs….. Akka Are there ISO’s for Windows 7 Starter? I have a valid product key for it, and no DVD. I was so glad to have found this site, but it doesn’t seem to have ISO’S for Starter Edition…? Any help much appreciated. Explorer @Akka Download Ultimate version, then open it with WinRAR (or any similar tool) and delete the ei.cfg file. Congrats, now you have All-in-One Windows 7 DVD.

Tutorial ei.cfg pd. always install multiversion bootin with your windows 7 copy and do it from 0 better, not install inside windows (some people says de menu dont appears when you install windows inside windows) Tutorial ei.cfg Hello my english it´s too bad but i try to explain how to do a Windows multiversion the first step it´s download the Windows 7 ultimate version. The copys of digitalriver are 100% original (crc no have idea) Only works correctly with the “ultimate” because includes all that other versions contains. 1. Download your adecuate iso … Ultimate x86(32bits O.S) or x64(64bits O.S) (if you don´t have more than 4 gigas of ram it´s better that you download always x32) 2. Download “Ultraiso” whit this you can edit your iso & save the changes. never directly descompress a ISO for save to a CD/DVD or you loss the boot info. use ultraiso for edit.) 3. Open the ISO downloaded with ultraiso and delete the file ei.cfg (\sources\ei.cfg) 4. SAVE the ISO. 5. Now your saved ISO it´s a multiversion Windows 7! Contains All systems in the bit category you downloaded the iso. x86 o x64. Starter, home, home premium, professional, ultimate… ========================================== Let´s go to use the edited ISO! in this step you can choose 2 options… 1.1 Burn to DVD.. download burnaware free and burn de ISO (option burn ISO) don´t choose burn DVD Data or not works ^^.. Only BURN ISO. 1.2 Download novicorp win to flash and pass the iso to a pendrive for installation.. it´s very easy to use, pay attention at your screen help and all go ok. 2. With your DVD or Pendrive boot the pc and boot from the DVD or the pendrive .. now the rest of the instalation it´s same how always but in 3 or 4 minutes you have a menu for choose your system.. I recommend Home premium if you do this step by step ALWAYS Works! Thanks for nothing Saludos desde España! Mitch Thank you very much… Your English might not be the greatest but you more than make up for it with knowledge… Keep up the good work. Muito obrigado Yon Well, you can open the .iso file with Winrar and delete the ei.cfg if necessary. But why we must delete it? We can download any version we need, ultimate, professional, home…. etc. No need to download ultimate if you want the professional and let’s not touch anything of the iso file. That’s better. Buy and use the legit key. You are safe from virus, trojan, etc., etc. And you will sleep deeply without any worry. All is well! Jan Why we want to delete the ei.cfg…? Perhaps some of us have strict limitations on download bandwidth, and don’t want to download three 99.9999% identical files….? Yon Jan, please read Tutorial ei.cfg’s posting first. So, you’ll understand why we need to delete the .cfg. Ahmed Is there any password needed for setup or any crack with it Windows 7 SP1 86X johnnie blue you will need to use your own key ,these are legit ISO file not bootleg Pingback: “Factory Reset” of Vista free upgrade to Win7 crc What? No sha1/md5 checksums for the isos? Good luck downloading multigigabyte files in one go! Tofu Master I posted some MD5sums of the ones I downloaded twice, but it’s awaiting moderation. =/ moustafa thank’sfor upload win 7 my bests regards http://www.heidoc.net/ Jan You only removed the reference to ei.cfg from the file table. When copying to usb, it wad included again.I think it might not be possible to remove ei.cfg physically. Rajiv I have downloaded “Windows 7 Ultimate SP1-U ISO English x64: X17-59465.iso” and to create an all-edition Windows 7 ISO image used “ei.cfg Removal Utility”. Thereafter, copied Windows 7 installation on Pen Drive by using “Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool”. Nevertheless, I have not found any operating system selection menu during installation. TheHuman Being easiest way is to just go in and manually edit the cfg file then burn it to dvd/usb… when i use the en-ultimate edition it doesn’t show versions like enterprise or home basic. only starter, home premium, pro, and ultimate show up when i manually edit the cfg. good luck Amit Choudhary From where I can download Microsoft windows XP professional Service pack 2/3 .iso bootable cd. my original cd has broken, and I need to image. please help and tell me and give me official link. thanks my mail id :- coolamit007choudhary@yahoo.com Loren Pechtel I note some people having problems getting stuck partway through the download.
