This would be a better source, be sure to select the correct bit-rate.


Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (KB976932)
Is there a Microsoft source that has Windows 7 + SP1?

Just to be clear, my link is for Windows 7 + SP1, not just SP1 by itself.

I am taking a chance using my link I know, but it is from digital river so maybe it is OK?

So now: move all my files from my user folder to my Portable Hard Drive, buy a 64-bit disc and install it on my C: Drive and then move it back?

Thx!

Yes, that's correct. You will need to re-install all your applications though.

Sorry mate, I thought your link was just for the Service Pack.

It is against forum policy to post dl links to Windows 7 installers.

I just found this for the OP, after seeing it I am in no doubt 64bit is the way to go!

How much did they charge you for just the installer disk?

Nothing, a friend of mine works there :-) He said I should try it with the OEM key on my laptop. But I'll wait for a few days to reinstall since I need it every moment now...
