Multiple Issues with Windows 7 ISO Install
My SSD died a few days ago, and I lost my windows 7 pro oem discs. But I still have the license key affixed to my case. i tried downloading the digitalriver ISO but they dont exist anymore, I went to the official Microsoft download page and my license key was denied. So I trolled the internet and found several ISOs of win 7 64 pro to download. Every single one does not work. They all refuse to install on my PC. I tried loading ACHI drivers, I tried contacting the SSD manufacturer, and I tried the manual partition option, but to no avail. However I still have a Windows 7 home 64 iso on a USB stick that I made 4 years ago and it works perfectly. I can install that version of windows, but I do not want too, due to the lack of desired features. I've redownloaded many versions of the same ISO from many different sources and I still have the same errors.
What should I do?
And does anyone have a digitalriver win 7 64 pro iso?
Edit: I tried with several different USB drives to no effect.

Look around for it
Windows 7 Ultimate SP1-U ISO (Refresh)
Windows 7 Professional SP1-U ISO (Refresh)
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1-U ISO (Refresh)
All the iso files contain all images. You only need one iso for your bit version. You can toggle it to show all images with :
The ei.cfg Removal Utility is a simple tool that will remove the ei.cfg file from any Windows ISO disc image, thereby converting the image into a "universal disc" that will prompt the user to select an edition during setup. This tool works by toggling the deletion bit in the UDF file table, eliminating the need for unpacking and rebuilding the ISO, which means that this is extremely fast (the process of patching the ISO to remove ei.cfg takes only a fraction of a second), and the process is easily reversible (running the utility on a disc image patched by this utility will restore the disc image to its original state).
