Don't Digital River offer them any more?
Nope

Microsoft has taken down the Digital River ISO download servers and are only providing ISO's to retail customers. This leaves those who bought a PC with Win7 at the mercy of OEM Tech Support who except for Dell rarely will provide clean Reinstallation media, to borrow a copy, or search for a torrent download which can be risky if not checked for add-ins.

If you have a retail copy of Windows 7, then you could try to download an ISO directly from Microsoft at the link below.

Microsoft Software Recovery

You can borrow a friend's disk to extract the ISO image file using ImgBurn
and then burn a new DVD using ImgBurn at 4x speed, write ISO to 4gb+ flash stick using UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive, or for UEFI installs use Option One of UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows

Why have you started a new thread when I am troubleshooting your install failure in your old thread? Bootmgr missing and hard disk error

It was suggested you replace your hard drive which failed diagnostics. You were hesitant so in my last post I suggested running the maker's diagnostics to confirm its condition, and also questioned your installer which was very suspect.

You replied that a new hard drive had suffered the same failure, which points to the installer.

Not until you try a new installer. Burn a new ISO to DVD using Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool,

You're wanting to Dual Boot XP and WIn7 then? On the same hard drive? You should install XP first if so.

Unplug all other hard drives, Boot the XP disk, at the drive selection screen choose the hard drive, delete all partitions, create a new one about half the size of the hard drive or less, do a full format of the partition, install XP there.

Then boot your new WIn7 installer to Clean Install Windows 7 to the remaining space.

If there are any problems performing any of these steps, what we need is an exact description of what happened and any error quoted back here. If you'll stop jumping all around and focus on the task we will help you get it installed just like we have for tens of thousands of others without a single failure.

That`s because you are trying to install XP on a windows 7 machine, it can easily blue screen and shut down or whatever it did.

For the love of God, why don`t you just make the copy of your Windows 7 DVD ? It will get rid of the scratches so you can install W7.
