Windows 7: Any where to get an ISO for Windows 7?

Any where to get an ISO for Windows 7?

I went to the Microsoft ISO download page and they require a product key. I do have a product key, but I get a message that it's an OEM and I need to contact my seller. It's an old PC, no one to contact. Any where to get the ISO?

Thanks

*Btw I tried the Window 7 Download Tool and it actually asks for an ISO (What? I thought it's called Download Tool and it downloads the ISO, not that I need to have one, so that doesn't help either)

You can use any ms iso file. They all contain all the editions.

For example:

The so called Ultimate iso x86 (32 bit) contains starter, home basic, home premium, professional and ultimate.

The so called Ultimate iso x64 (64 bit) contains home basic, home premium, professional and ultimate.

The iso files called "professional" also contain all editions - so do the iso files called "home premium", or Home basic"


There is a little file in the sources folder of the iso called ei.cfg. That tells windows setup which edition to offer.

Just remove the ei.cfg file, or toggle it off by pointing the eicfg-remover at the iso file. eicfg_removal_utility.zip

It will then offer all the editions - obviously select the edition you have a license for.

Dism++ can be used to backup the activation and 3rd party drivers from the currently installed system.

Dism++10.1.1000.100.zip


Then clean install from your installation media.

Then use dism++ to restore activation and drivers.

Then run simplix updatepack to do the updates - it will reboot and clean up as necessary.

I do not have Windows 7 currently installed because I upgraded to Windows 10, but now I need to downgrade to install some BIOS update
