Windows 7: Where can I get a Windows 7 installation disk from?

Where can I get a Windows 7 installation disk from?

As per the title really. I have found the Microsoft site at:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/soft...nload/windows7

but this site will not let me download a file for my HP OEM installation.

Can some kind soul please let me know where I can get a download from?

A couple of weeks ago I got a download from Microsoft themselves (at least I think it was Microsoft), but this location now seems to have disappeared and I cannot find anything on the HP website either.

Thank you for the link, however x17-59297.iso is for the Italian and Chinese version and according to the index file at the foot of the list, the English version should be: x17-59186.iso

I am attempting to download this file now, but it is very, very slow.

I will report back in due course.

I am happy to say that the download has completed and that I have burned the file onto a DVD.

Thanks for the lead to the download site, I could not find it at all myself as all the leads that I had were saying that Digital River was no longer hosting these files.

Sorry about the errant link. Glad that you found the error before downloading the ISO.
