I guess the ones in the link that you posted are legit copies from microsoft.

Im not sure which one to choose though. "Windows 7 ISO" or "Windows 7 SP1 Intergrated ISO"

Im guessing SP1 is service pack 1? So should I go with that one?

I would go directly to MS if there is any question at all. I wold run the update readiness tool to find out if your system is ready for SP-1



Ensure you install the correct 64 or 32bit option for your system)

Download the System Update Readiness Tool (64bit)

It easier and I suspect should cause no grief.

Again, backups are you friends.

Is this way considered a clean install? Using The Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool - TechNet Articles - Home - TechNet Wiki (scroll towards the bottom)

Or do I have to do i this way? Clean Install Windows 7

A clean install always includes a reformat or partition deletion, so the second method.

Brinks tutorials are always bullet proof too!!!

The installation went smooth. Just installing a bunch of updates and I will go from there.

Hopefully this fixes my problem.
