Thanks for replying; sounds exactly what I and many others need. Maybe I'm pulling a huge duhhh, but I haven't been able to locate the Windows 7 RTM.iso. Can you point me in the right direction? I've searched Technet & MSDN.

You will need to borrow and copy it, which is not illegal since you own a license you intend to use it for.

This is why MS does not copy-protect them. The DVD or ISO is only an installer and not connected to the purchased key.

It is available on the internet but on sites that are dangerous to download from and not recommended.
That's what I figured; thanks again. I guess I could buy an upgrade to my old XP system and use that.

dual-booting win7 and linux

hey AllanP you can have dual-boot with linux. you can go into start/manage and select diskmanagement and shrink the win7 volume to say 50 gbs for linux. just use ths calaculator to figure out the disk space in MBs. ive done it and it caused no problems. good luck!

Yes I've done that, but Linux won't recognize the partition I created because of Windows dynamic disk versus basic. That has been my whole problem; wanting to keep Win7 and load Linux; no can do. I need to delete partitions; re-partition and install Windows then Linux.
