Btw, if you downloaded one version you have all of them, you do not need to download multiple copies. Just need e to remove that one file in the ISO.

You can toggle ei.cfg ( little text file inside the iso ) with this: winisoutils - Windows ISO Disc Image Utilities

I finally managed to d/l the X17-59887.iso file from digital river using the link in this thread, only diff was I used a wired connection.
Managed to create a bootable USB and booted from it. I cant test the install on this system tho, I'll have to wait until I receive the new drive. Fingers crossed.

Posted on MS internal communications channel this morning:

Quote:
Apparently MS is taking down the Digital River servers where consumers can download Windows 7 ISO's for their licensed version to Clean Reinstall Factory OEM . My tutorial below has helped over 1.2 million consumers get the best possible install of the OS, which is eminently in MS best interests, compared to the worst possible (factory) install larded with bloatware and duplicate factory utilities that interfere with better versions built into the OS.

The problem is that the new Software Recovery Center at Microsoft Software Recovery only allows retail Product Keys, so those most in need of the media are shut out. This forces these consumers who bought PC's in a store to dodgy torrents for questionable downloads, since the OEM's will rarely provide Clean Recovery media in order to enforce their sponsors' bloatware.

If the COA sticker is required on factory OEM PC's so that consumers can liberate their copy of the OS to run it as they please, why are these Product Keys not being included as eligible for ISO downloads?

Further, MS needs to side with consumers on these buggy OEM factory installs and encourage the best possible Clean Install which we help achieve every time without a single complaint. I have asked at Summit and am hopeful Windows Ten Team will consider a Clean Reinstall Reset. This is giving the Consumers what they want.
I feel a great weight off since now (hopefully) the case is made to the same peers and execs who are trying so hard with Windows 10 to prove they are listening to consumers.

Anyway to transfer a bootable flash drives contents to another flash drive and keep it bootable :/
I made a boo-boo and put my laptops iso 32 bit home premium on a large flash drive
Unfortunately I deleted the original iso file

This bites because the iso is gone and was an upgrade key activation which won't work now the way Microsoft has the downloads setup

Might just have to buy another large flash drive owe well live and learn
