Okay, didn't notice that in your sig....lol... Any way to verify that those links are "clean?" Last thing I wanna do is download an OS w/malicious code/malware, etc.

Thanks

The links posted above your last post by SGT Oddball are direct from Microsoft and you don't get any cleaner than that.

Sorry... Didn't see his post when responding....and thank your the links SGT Oddball.... Very kind of you.


Curious about one thing though... Since my comp came with Win7 preloaded, will the product key on my COA sticker work during activation? I remember reading somewhere that the key that comes w/a Win7 DVD is somehow different from the key on a preinstalled system. Not 100% about this but I recall reading something to that effect.

The COA key will work with the genuine ISO. You probably read about the OEM SLP key. You may need to undergo Phone Activation when using the COA key for the first time.

And to answer your question, you can check the validity of your ISO via their MD5 or SHA1 to ensure they have not been corrupted or tampered with.

Hopefully, you have downloaded Oddball's links already as they expire. You can always go with the official MS DigitalRiver Mirror torrents just in case.

Okay great....Already downloaded the links and burned the x64 ISO to dvd, (not sure I need the x32)... Any suggestions for ISO to Flash programs? I'd like to have both optical & flash options available.

Thanks for all your help!

You may want to try Rufus to create your bootable USB drive.

Yes, I definitely will... Torchwood is currently helping me resolve the update issues and other errors i'm having, so I may not need to reinstall. It's still good to have the ISO though, because if/when I do reinstall Win7, I'll use the ISO to avoid the bloatware from my restore disks.
