Hello everyone, I am trying to create an image that to install programs as well, I found the software to do so but now I need an install.wim file, does anyone know where I can get a free win 7 professional to do so? I have a product key and only recovery disk from HP which does not contain this file. please help. I assure anyone I am not pirating I just need help, I have quite a few computers to image and little time to tediously install every little program each time. thanks in advance

There is a install.wim in the Sources directory of Windows 7 install DVDs or ISOs.

See here: Download Windows 7 ISOs, Legally and for Free

Also available here: Microsoft DigitalRiver Mirror (Technet)

The 1st is a German torrent download site with verifiable MD5 checksums for each of the available ISOs.
To download Windows 7 using a torrent file, we will need a torrent client.

Any torrent client will work, though, but I recommend qBittorrent. All the others I've looked at try to install
other garbage along with the torrent program so avoid them.
