Windows 7: Can't find a proper ISO file

08 Nov 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Can't find a proper ISO file


I'm using a Finnish version of Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1.
Windows Update has been dead since September, so I finally decided to do a repair install.
I do not have a Windows installation disc, so I'm forced to use an ISO file.
I tried to do a repair install with an English version of Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1 U, which I found here, but apparently I need to use a Finnish one, since I got this message when I tried to do the install:

You can’t do a typical upgrade using an installation disc that’s different from the language installed on your computer.

So where do I find a Finnish Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1 ISO file?
Or are there some other ways to do this?

Edit: Yep, it worked. Thanks.

You can try using the ei.cfg Removal Utility to create a Universal installer with all versions.

Download the Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1 U Finnish ISO from Windows 7 Direct Download Links, Official Disk Images from Digital River

Download the ei.cfg Removal Utility from winisoutils - Windows ISO Disc Image Utilities
(download link is at the bottom of the page)

Here are instructions for using the ei.cfg Removal Utility

I don't know if this will work for what you need, but it's free to try.
