    :I don't see any such comments at the link I provided, only a file ready to Save: Win7 Home Premium x64 SP1 English Official ISO download

    If you have the old installer then you might want to use it to save downloading charges and time, then put up with an extra hour of updating to get caught up to SP1. It may hold it back for a day or more to sequence all interim updates first so that little is left of actual SP1 install from Updates.

    Whichever you use follow the steps to get it perfect.

    The comments I referenced are located in the reviewer's section of the file you sent me. I seen only 1 thru 5 of the reviewer's comments, and the two I referenced were, I think as I recall, the 2nd and 3rd reviewer's comments.

    Thank you for this tutorial. I'm going to be using it to "upgrade" to the 64 bit version. My User profile is copying now, and as soon as I can get a pack of DVDs to burn the iso, I'm going to get moving.

    Hi everyone, I have been given my friend's laptop to repair. Sadly, I believe that the HD is DOA.

    HD Tune is flagging the drive as having a "RAW Read Rate Error" And it has quite a few bad sectors (Along with a "bootmgr" error) problem on bootup.

    The laptop has a COA sticker on the bottom with a Windows 7 Home Premium OA on it. Will I be able to use one of the ISOs that are listed in the opening post to reinstall my friend's W7 for him, after I get a new drive? (and more importantly, which on do I use?)

    Many, many thanks in advance : )

    Yes to your first question.

    Assuming he has 64-bit English Home Premium, you need X17-58997.iso

    I have checked on the Samsung website, and the laptop is billed as being sold with the 64-bit version. So, I'm ok to use this ISO to reinstall his W7?

    And thanks for the very quick reply : )

    The Product Key sticker on the Samsung should confirm all you need to know.

    If you don't have the Product Key, you cannot activate Windows.

    You need the one I mentioned, assuming that is the version that matches the Product Key.

    Hello Isaac, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Since it's an upgrade copy, you could use the tutorial below instead to do a clean install with it. :)

    Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

    Hope this helps,

    I knew I could do it that way, but if my Windows Product Key from the upgrade license would work with the downloaded ISO with SP 1 already installed on a USB stick it seems like it would be simpler and faster

    Has anybody tried it and verified it doesn't work?
    I can confirm that the upgrade disk key will work with downloaded Win 7/SP1 ISO download. Instead of using my upgrade disk which did not have SP1 preinstalled, I downloaded the ISO with SP 1 preinstalled and built a bootable USB to install a clean windows using option 3 in:

    My hard drive was failing and I knew it was time for anew one. Of course, I backed up everything again. In addition to my Seven Install DVD, I had back ups. I decided that at this juncture it would be good to make another backup using Macrium. Wanted to make sure that it worked, before installing the new Hard Drive, so I used the image to reinstall. At every boot, I got a strange error. I discovered that there is an easily fixed flaw in the ISO. So just for information, I present this article from MS.
    Having said that, thank you so much Gregg, for the excellent tutorial, it has helped me more than you could ever know.
