Hi mahesh69, welcome to Seven Forums,

You can download the ISO file from here:

TechBench

Then use the following information:

Windows (Final) > Windows 7 SP1 (build 7601) > Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 > English > Win_Ult_SP1_English_x64.iso

Obviously change the language and bit type to suit.

Then delete or rename the ei.cfg [ISO > Sources > ei.cfg] file (this will make all versions available) from the ISO and burn it to a DVD.
On the installation you can select whatever version of Windows 7 you have the Product Key for.
You will only be able to activate the version of Windows that you have a valid Product Key for.

I hope this helps!

Why not use the MS site? Do you not have a serial number?

The link I gave you is legitimate and will provide you with a genuine copy of Windows 7 with the latest build of 7601.

Where exactly did you download the file from?

Once you have extracted the contents of the ISO and found the ei.cfg file in ISO > Sources > ei.cfg you can either delete or rename it. Doing this will make all Windows 7 versions available. You then just need to burn it to a DVD or USB and use that to reinstall.

On the installation you can select whatever version of Windows 7 you have the Product Key for.
You will only be able to activate the version of Windows that you have a valid Product Key for.

I hope this helps!

Hi mahesh69,

The ISO you have downloaded is NOT OEM (original equipment manufacturer software) but you can still use the Product Key on the COA (Certificate Of Authenticity) sticker located on the bottom of your computer (or in the battery compartment) for activation.

When doing the clean install, skip the enter Product Key screen. You can then enter the Product Key after you know the install has been successful and everything is running OK. You have a certain number of days in which to activate Windows anyway, which you will be prompted to do.

I hope this helps!
