Which windows 7 iso do I download?

Which windows 7 iso do I download again? I want the 32 bit operating system even though my system is 64 bit but it only has 4 gb of ram.

I already tried 32 bit but somehow lost the disk. The issue with that it couldn't find some of the USB drivers & NTDVM did not work to well in Windows 7 with 16 bit programs, but surprisingly windows 10 preview 16 bit & NTDVM worked better. Windows 10 preview also found the needed drivers.

If I decided to upgrade later to windows 10. I want the install the 32 bit of Windows 7, then upgrade to windows 10.

My system is a Windows 7 64 bit Home premium oem

Which 32 bit Home Premium Operating System do I download

Windows 7 Direct Download Links, Official Disk Images from Digital River

Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River My Digital Life


From my understanding it is legal to replace a windows 7 64 bit oem with a 32 bit oem installation.

It is fine to go from 64 bit Windows to 32 bit Windows if you have a legitimate key. Can I ask why you'd want to go to 32 bit? Having 4 GB of RAM is perfectly fine for 64 bit Windows.

Yes, I do have legitimate key. I am not going do this to right now. That only if I decided to upgrade to windows 10. Microsoft does not have a NTDVM for 64 bit machine as it can not use 16 bit programs. Wine developers are slow at developing wine for Windows. I have this program called travel map, it is old but I use it a lot. I have to use the program on Linux with Wine installed. I can't use it on either the 32 bit or 64 bit Windows 7. When I was testing out the 32bit preview of windows 10, travel map worked without any issue after NTDVM was activated. I found out getting a rootkit is the same risk whether you use a 32 bit or 64 bit machine even though some will disagree.

On the first link you provided, go to the language of your choice, and download "Windows 7 Home Premium x86 SP1"

It's the same link to the file got to pay more attention when reading the articles.

I guess I got because the other page had more links on them, I didn't even think of comparing the two.
