    Where can i find .ISO file of Windows 7 that doesn't require key?


    Where can i find .ISO file of Windows 7 that doesn't require activation key?

    The problem is that i can't find .ISO file, and keys are no longer being sold, meaning even if i find working Windows 7, i won't be able to activate it. So, i need Windows 7 that doesn't require key. Is there such Windows 7?

    You should continue in your other thread here:
    Can Windows 7 still be used?
    instead of starting a new thread.

    There is no such thing as a key-less Windows.

    Windows is a paid program. That means that, to use it, you need to purchase a license from Microsoft, which i turn will give you a serial to activate Windows. Logically as a consequence, every single copy of Windows out there will ask for a serial at installation time or failing that, up to 30 days after that.

    As you say, without a valid license key you won't be able to activate it. So first buy a Windows copy, then download the installer, install and you can activate it quite easily later on.

    How to buy the key, if Microsoft no longer sells keys for Windows 7?

    You can not install Win 7 on all modern hardware.
    On old OEM (Dell, HP, Sony...etc) computers you don't need a key.
    So the first question is: Where are you intent to install win 7?

    You should qualify that by saying that all modern computers as most computers made in the last few years. There are a lot of computers older than that that have drivers for Windows 7. Naturally, if the computer is non-OEM then your chances of getting old drivers is better.

    You have to qualify OEM computers that don't need a key as ones produced after a certain date. For example, I had to use a Product Key to install Windows 7 on my HP laptop. That is because it was built before they started embedding the Product Key.

    What happens if you don't activate Windows 7? Will the whole OS get blocked, or just some features will be blocked? Which features will be blocked?
