Windows 7: Windows 7 home premium 64 bits image

7 Home Premium 64bit
Windows 7 home premium 64 bits image

I have an ASuS notebook and I would like to reinstall windows 7 64 bits home premium. The rescue partition is corrupted. Where can I download the OS for which I own a license? I have seen that there are tutorials to install the image into a pendrive and install it from there. For short I want to download the OS image to use my license.

Thanks for your help.

You should be able to order the Recovery DVD from ASuS. Check their web site.

It seems like you might want to do a "better than new" clean reinstall with an Install DVD rather than use Recovery Disks which come loaded with the factory bloatware and useless factory utilities.

We are unable to link you to Win7 download since it encourages piracy. Best to borrow a friend's DVD, and copy it or extract the ISO to unlock all versions so you can install yours with the Product key on COA sticker: Windows 7 Universal Installation Disc - Create
USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

Next wipe the HD of all code: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

The installer is mostly driver-complete, with newer arriving quickly via optional Windows Updates. Any drivers then missing in Device Manager can be found on the Support Downloads webpage for your model computer or device. Clean Install Windows 7

Install updates and then programs slowly over time to gauge performance after each. Don't let any programs write themselves into msconfig>Startup as they become freeloaders on your RAM/CPU and can spy on you. I only allow AV and gadgets. Troubleshooting with MSCONFIG

Use a lightweight free AV like MS Security Essentials which works perfectly with Windows 7 Firewall.

When it is finished, clean and order the HD perfectly using state-of-the-art free CCleaner then Auslogics Disk and Registry defraggers monthly. CCleaner - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET

Then save a Windows 7 Backup image externally so you never have to reinstall again, just reimage the HD or replacement using DVD or Repair CD. Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

I think buying a set of recovery disks is your best option. They will probably rebuild your HDD recovery partition first. I assume you either didn't make or have the option to make recovery disks when you bought the PC.
I would imagine anyone else's recovery partition or recovery disks are already locked to their PC.

My post referred to using the Win7 retail DVD to Clean Reinstall a factory install as most tech enthusiasts do, since OP had asked for just the OS.

Mike refers to Recovery Disks which can be ordered from your computer maker, however they contain the factory bloatware and utilities which can hamper Win7.
