Those pages are redirected here. Are they still live in your region? The links don't seem to say so.

They are still working and do not redirect to this site, rather they open a download prompt.

Strange that the links as pasted into the post above already show each being redirected. What do they show on your end? What is the URL?

Are these the Heidoc links which were in tutorial, or directly from the Digital River page?
Hi. Right clicking the links gives me the location:

http : / /msft.digitalrivercontent.net /win/X17-24208. iso (Added spaces as pasted link looked like this: Microsoft - The Page or File You Requested Could Not Be Provided)

And it is a direct download dialog box that pops up.

I found the links on another site and thought I'd share them

I just tried your link after removing the spaces. I did not get a download dialog and was redirected to:

Maybe for you; not for me. I get "Microsoft - The Page or File You Requested Could Not Be Provided".

It appears that one of the DR downloads is still working as of now:

This is the version without the Media Refresh added to make it v.X17.58997:
Quote:
This new issue fixes a minor issue when using the original Windows 7 SP1 media to install Win7 w/SP1 on a new PC. The Windows 7 SP1-U (Media Refresh version) adds the installation hotfix KB2534111, and nothing else. No other changes have been made to the Windows 7 with SP1 ISO image despite there are several updates that have been released after the original Windows 7 SP1 was released.
