Here's what i see for the Win 7 Pro x64 ISO (SP1) i downloaded from Digital River when they were available.
The ISO download is the X17-59186.iso

Does this help ?

First off it's next to impossible to find a Windows 7 Retail that is legal.

Retail versions were gone from the market a long time ago.

The only difference between a Retail and a OEM builders Windows 7 is the COA key.
With a Retail key you have some extra option, like being able to move the operating system from computer to computer.

As far as I know the ISO on the DVD's are the same between Retail and OEM Builders. The COA key is what is different.

*Exactly what Microsoft DVD do you have?

*Exactly what Microsoft COA do you have?

Do not post the key# just the name.

Just because you have or (buy) a retail key does not mean the download from MS will work, people have tried and failed, the only success we`ve seen and I myself have done is by using our system builder licenses, which is way cheaper then buying Retail.

You are once again correct Jack about the discs being the same, also with oem you get support from the pc vendor (unless of course you yourself bought the oem copy) with retail you get 365 days of support from MIcrosoft, but who needs that

Quick everyone, bookmark Z`s site before it gets pulled.

That makes sense that they wouldn't, those are all pre SP1 ISO's, X15-series, the ones above are X17-series.

Note the dvd_u_ in the name. That means it's the update version which includes SP1, I suspect that's why the SHA1 value does not match what is shown in the link you provided.

These are the MD5 and SHA -1 sums for US English Windows 7 ISOs I downloaded from the german torrent site. They match the values given on that site but I have not found anywhere I can compare them to.
