180 on ebay - WOW, rip-off imho.
I hope you get a legit license !
Can you buy from NewEgg in Australia ?

Newegg only has oem. I can get oem's here without a problem but I need a retail licence to download the iso.

I thought a "Retail" OEM license could download from the MS site, based on a recent change.

Now it's only "PC Manufactures" OEM license that can't download the ISO from MS.

Search for this, if i find threads about it i'll post back.
Maybe someone else here knows better !

You must have missed what I said.

My Windows 7 retail product key is at my holiday house about 5 hours from here and I don't have internet there so I need to download the iso here and take it with me so I can fix my laptop up there.

But as I don't have the key with me at rhis momement I cannot download the iso, if I could download the iso withour the product key (like digital river) I would not be here

EDIT: Now I missed what you said I don't wanna spend cash on a oem disk if its not gonna work.

Hmm another option to ask around on the forums if anyone can send me a download link. I was just reading that you can put a product code in and get the direct download link to the iso emailed.

Anyone got a retail serial they can put into microsoft recovery and send me the download link?

I don't see the product key just get a link to the iso, not even linked to the product key just need it to get past the firewall of the link


EDIT: Apologise if I broke any rules with that message

You can do a torrent download from here for some of the versions: [removed]
You need to install a torrent client. I looked at the ones suggested and didn't like any except for qTorrent which doesn't try to install a bunch of scamware. I used it to download Windows 7 Pro X86 and X64 and compared the md5 checksums with what they posted and they matched. Now I need to find somewhere to compare them against actual md5 checksum values from Microsoft Downloads or at least MS published.

Good luck.

Edit: Compared them with the MSDN Technet MD5 sums and they match so these are good, safe ISOs to use,
