Does anybody know where I can download a legal copy of Windows 7 Home Premium OEM .iso.  I have to wipe a laptop and I have a legit Product Key but I do not have an install disc.  I would like to not have to pay an additional $30 dollars for recovery discs from HP.

Legal copy?  If you cannot find one, seems to me that there may not be a "legal" download site for such.  I've not known MS to make such available to users.

They use to have a site called Digital River where MS allowed you to download an .iso file but that site has been discontinued.  I'm just looking for an alternative site...

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.

mydigitallife iso's have been taken down, but w7forums are still up.

That said, these are retail versions that require a retail key. The OEM version like requested in the first post can only be supplied by the manufacturer who created the OEM image, as they are specific to every machine make and model.

Just so you know TsVk!, W7Forums .iso are the DigitalRiverContent .iso :wink: So a lot of them aren't working. The only working ones as far as I know are Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bits and Ultimate SP1 64-bits. I downloaded them yesterday.

A valid Retail product key (or variation) is needed... OEM keys not accepted.

Ultimate isn't that hard to find. For some reason, a lot of people install it and don't realize that its useless since they don't even use the additional features it offers. In return, they add more services to their system that take more bases resources that they could save instead.
