Downloading Windows 7

Hello and Happy New Year to all of you!!!!!

I had some problems activating my Windows 7 so I contacted my university from which I got the dvd and now I can download windows 7 from msdn academic alliance.

I ordered to download Windows 7 Professional (x64)-DVD Greek.
BUT I dont know where shall I download it. A dvd or a empty space hard disk?

P.S: Probably I will have more questions later

Thanks a lot

As my friend Ken has explained do use dvd media to install, hoe ever be aware that there may be issues if you do not use the slowest burn speed. Also if you have a penndrive it may be more effective extracting the iso to the flash drive as a bootable disk. Some issues of missing dvd drivers have been reported so ensure that you update your optical drive and burn to the installation disk.
As always we will be here should you need further assistance.

Yes. MS provide an app. here to do it for you if you have the .iso file:

Microsoft Store: Download Manager Help

Or for those who have a dvd and want to make bootable flash:

Good afternoon!
The downloading has been completed and now there is a message, from the page I was downloading, to continue with the installation pressing the launch button.
Shall I do so or shall I follow another process?
