Windows 7: Need iso file for re-image

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
Need iso file for re-image

I am working on a Lenovo B570 with a legitimate copy of Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit. The hard drive is toast. I can read it via a different laptop, but booting up either from the hard drive or recovery disk just leads me around in circles.

I am wanting to re-format the hard drive (or replace the current one) and re-install Windows. MS' site no longer has the iso I need. I have copies of Windows 7 Professional 64 bit iso, but I am in need of the iso for Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

Does anyone know where I can get one?

You should be able to use the ei.cfg removal tool to unlock all versions.
If your licensed version is unavailable you can unlock all versions in any ISO by running ei.cfg removal tool or by deleting ei.cfg from Sources folder on bootable flash stick.

In addition Step 1 of Clean Reinstall Windows 7 shows how to extract the ISO file from you disk using ImgBurn, then as stated unlock all versions with the ei.cfg removal tool to burn to new DVD with ImgBurn at 4x speed. The whole thing takes about 20 minutes and you have an all-versions installer.

The rest of the steps in that tutorial will assure you get and keep a perfect install.
