Windows 7: Windows 7 SP1 OEM ISO - Microsoft Site

Windows 7 SP1 OEM ISO - Microsoft Site

Hi there,

I have an original Windows 7 OEM Disc (Pre Service Pack 1).

I wanted a new disc to include SP1, so went to the this Microsoft Site to download the SP1 64 Bit ISO file:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...nload/windows7

I downloaded it, it downloaded as a .rar file so I extracted it thinking it would just be a single ISO file as the name suggested, but it was a collection of 9 files (Exactly same files as on my Original OEM Disc as I open that to view files).

I inserted a blank DVD, and used the Built in Burn to burn the 9 Files, see attached image:


When I put the disc back into the drive and reboot the computer & set the boot drive to my DVD I don't get the usual on screen prompt like with the original disc "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD etc", and I can't boot off it.

I have been having problems with the DVD drives (I have 2 of them) and they are about 6 years old, but my Original Win 7 Disc brings up the normal prompts, I'm just wondering what's missing off the new Disc as it's straight from Microsoft Website.

Would appreciate some help.

Thanks.

It should not download as a rar file.

Even if you use windows it should show up like this, but the disc should be silver, if not you`ll need a program, personally I use PowerIso, but you can use a program like Imgage Burn or Free Iso Burner,, the file has to open by default to one of those programs, right click the file and set the default program to open it.

The Official ImgBurn Website

It downloaded as an RAR because WinRAR has the ISO association, you can undo that in options> settings> integration tab. Uncheck ISO in the associate WinRAR with.

Yep, you don`t want WinRar having anything to do with iso files, only rar files.

In fact I don`t even use WinRar, I use WinZip

Ok thanks people,

Yea I checked the ISO box when I installed winrar. Will uncheck and try again.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I should just be able to down the ISO, burn to disc and it should work just like my original windows disc except this one has service pack 1 included, have I got that right

Yes, that is correct, but no one here has ever reported on a a download from that site.

Burn it at no faster then x4 speed.

Free ISO Burner

The proper size for Windows 7 pro x64 SP1 should be what I pictured above.

Ok I burned at 16x speed. Will re-download and burn at 4x speed.

What do you mean no one has ever reported on a download from that site do you no one has downloaded from the Microsoft site that I linked too?

You're the first one I'm personally aware of. It's been a constant failure rate for just about everyone we've pointed to it.

You mean a constant failure of download or the file is corrupt? The ISO is 3.1gb big on the download.

I don't quite understand what you mean constant failure rate as in does the ISO not work?

Sorry if I confused you.

Most people have OEM keys which are not supported on that site, only retail keys can be used.
