Windows 7: Cannot download anything

28 May 2016   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium

I'm going to do a clean install. What about the partitions I mentioned? Should I leave the OEM and REcovery partitions in tacked and just load 7 on the C: partition? I attached a snip it from Disk Management. Also, where is the best place to get a fresh/clean ISO download?

W7 home premium 32bit/W7HP 64bit/w10 tp insider ring

Hi Copiman,
Your choice i only run a C drive, and overwrote OEM and restore, then immediately created an image when i finshed my initial set-up.

If your system specs are still current >> student <<, have a word with your School/University IT people, you might be entitled to a Dreamspark licence. you also get extra's, have a read

If not i'll put a call out.

Thanks Roy for all your help. I spoke with an Instructor at school because I needed Office 2013 for a class. He said Dreamspark did not offer Office. I will check with someone else about Dreamspark so I can see for myself what all they have. I looked at the software catalog on the site you posted and it did not look like a lot. Of course there may be more and I just havnt found all of it. I'll check into it.

Just completed the image and a backup. I'm going to wipe this puppy clean and install 7. Thanks again for helping me.
