Hello Parashar,

Yes, Digital River has official Windows ISO file downloads since that is also a Microsoft site. Of course, you would need to already have a legitimate product key to use to activate with.

Didn't you determine that MDL wasn't a good site to use and changed to Heidoc?

Nope. I said that we couldn't link to it since it would get a DMCA notice. It's still an official ISO file, and are the same ones that Heidoc below uses.

Yes, both Heidoc or Digital River is safe to download from since they are "official" ISO files.
