    For those having trouble getting the Windows 7 ISO, this may be useful:

    3.13

    Thanks for this, i remember a while back they wouldnt even let you download ISO's unless you enter a proper key. And a lot of times they didn't even recognize my genuine retail key. Hope this works.

    that's why I posted this because no matter what genuine key I entered, none of them worked, they were retail keys but Micro$h4ft are doing this on purpose to prevent users from enjoying the OS they bought and upgrade to 10.

    Very nice. I can't tell you how many times people have been forced to turn to torrents to get an ISO when they have a legitimate license key.

    yes and I added this to the NBR Windows 7 Clean Install guide as a lot of times people were asking where to get the ISO from, this is a saviour to us all.

    I got really ticked off when Microsoft pulled the ISOs from DR as I accidentally wiped out my hard drive that had my 7 and 8.1 ISOs. Hopefully they don't shut this one off too although now that the campaign to get free Windows 10 is ending, it seems unlikely that they will bother.

    Well since these links are MSDN links, I would grab them now while I can.

    If for any reason you weren't able to in the future, I have the genuine untouched ISOs as well which we can see where to upload them for you.

    Oh I have all the ISOs now. Although honestly I'm happy with Windows 10 now. I know, blasphemy...

    don't let me search for posts youo made a few months earlier :p

    it's time to switch you know, no point in keeping on fighting updates every week and tweaking many things to get the OS to your liking, that and the fact that Windows 7 sucks for NVMe SSDs

    I nuked my Windows 10 install on my desktop, did a clean install, disabled all the privacy invasion it let me during the initial setup, then went through and disabled everything I could find in the control panel. I'm fine with some telemetry but I disabled most of the spying (especially the keylogging and such). DWS and ShutUp 10 made a mess of my last install and I was having a ton of issues but its working perfectly now.
