Doc, I don't think this Digital River link will work as it wanted a student login. I've been looking at these two sites Windows 7 electronic download with fresh install? and Windows 7 electronic download with fresh install?

Looks like ppl have been going about it different ways...I wonder is there a consensus on how to do it yet?

Thanks Doc. Looks like you can order a boxed kit for an extra 13 bucks, so might be lazy and just get that.

Digital river will let download a ISO or .exe. The ISO comes with the MS usb loader or you can get one or burn it to a DVD. I downloaded both and bought the DVD and some how got a extra DVD sent to me.

Yes I have made 6 different USB Flash Drives (Bootable) for installing different versions of win7, they all work rather smoothly. 4gb to 16gb with extra utility files, antivirus, MalWareBytes, Wallpaper, Gadgets, etc

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
 
 

I'm taking a single class here at a local comm. college. I got my copy of Win7 Ultimate for $99. I was given the option of either downloading it, or getting it on the DVD. I got the DVD. Installed without a problem (I did a clean install. I have NEVER done an update install on any of my pc's and never will).
