    Default Legal Download: Windows 7 with SP1, 13 languages

    INTRODUCTION

    As of August 2014, these are the latest Windows 7 ISO's released by Microsoft.

    These are the second versions of Windows 7 SP1 ISO's (Media Refresh or SP1 U) that were published by Microsoft (including SHA1 values) in May 2011

    Useful for anyone who:

    - Bought a Windows 7 DVD and lost/damaged the disc.
    - Bought a computer with a Valid Windows 7 COA sticker, look here. These keys doesn't always work with both 32- and 64-bit Windows 7.
    - Wants a copy of Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 integrated.
    - Wants to perform a clean install to get rid of all software that came preinstalled with the computer. Don't forget to get the needed drivers.
    - Wants to perform a clean install with a different language.
    - Wants to make a ISO with both 32- and 64-bit versions in one ISO.

    You need a key to activate.

    Use this tool to copy the ISO file to a USB drive or DVD.
    (If you have modified the ISO and this doesn't work, use some other solution, see below. Deleting ei.cfg doesn't affect this tool.)

    The English Windows 7 Ultimate with Service Pack 1 uses about 7.3 GB, excluding pagefile, hibernation file, hardlinks, separately installed drivers and software.


    DOWNLOAD _________________________________________________________________

    MODIFY ____________________________________________________________________

    Do you need a different version with one of the 13 languages?
    For example: English Starter, Dutch Home Premium, Portuguese Ultimate . . .

    1 - Download a copy of Professional with your language of choice.

    2 - Delete /sources/ei.cfg (either with this tool or manually after you have copied it to a USB drive).

    3 - Now you're able to install Starter (x86 only), Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional, or Ultimate.

    You still need a key for the version you choose to install.

    PREPARE ___________________________________________________________________

    You have to copy the ISO to either a USB drive that's at least 4 GB large, or a DVD.
    The Microsoft Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool is the easiest to use, it's the best choice for the majority of users.
    It does have one drawback though, it refuses to work with modified ISOs.

    If your modified ISO won't install to a USB drive, there are other options.

    - Unetbootin.
    It reads ISO, it's updated frequently. (Earlier versions didn't work well XP ISOs, haven't tried it lately, not a problem for installing Windows 7.)
    Always format the USB drive in NTFS before you start.

    - WinsetupfromUSB.
    It lets you copy XP and Windows 7 onto the same USB drive, but it can't read ISO, you need to mount the ISO first.

    Don't use a regular, slow USB flash drive because it will be incredibly slow, installation took 4 hours on my 16 GB Sandisk..
    A USB HDD is preferrable. I haven't tried USB 3.0, but you may have to add drivers?

    Do you get this error when installing from USB?
    "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing"
    When Windows is asking for driver, just click Cancel. You will be brought back to the welcome screen. At the welcome screen, remove your USB drive, insert it back to DIFFERENT USB PORT. Click Install Now again. The installation process will be like usual.

    Edit: Googling helps.

    I found them by accident. I went to mydigitallife just to see if they had any info about Windows 8, and found this.
    Checked the old download thread here but didn't see KLF's post until after I posted this, but I think many others would have missed it as well anyway.

    Besides having SP1 included, there are many more languages to choose from this time.

    I don't understand this. Are these full copies of Windows 7? I just bought Windows 7 Professional 64bit from my college (it didn't include SP1 so I had to go through a lot of updates). If I ever wanted to reinstall Windows 7 Pro 64bit, can I just use one of these instead to skip the updating process? (and use the key included with my purchase).

    Here's how to integrate IE9: How integrate IE9 in Windows 7 sp1 installation DVD

    It takes some time for it to finish, but the work you have to do is not much, maybe 5 - 10 minutes or so.
    Just remember that you have to work on a 64-bit W7 machine to do this for the 64-bit install, and that you still have to make an ISO afterwards (if you need that).

    I'm not sure how the original Microsoft USB installer reacts to AIO 32- & 64-bit ISO's, so here's an alternative.
    It also allows having XP on the same USB memory.
    Create Multiboot USB Drive: Install Windows 7, XP From Same USB Drive

    It works well with Windows 2000 and anything newer that that, also Linux etc..

    One of my favorite tools!

    Unlike Unetbootin it doesn't read ISO's tho.

    RT 7 Lite works well to customize the latest Win 7 and to integrate any updates or drivers. Afterward, I used the MS tool for USB installation.
    Current laptop: Lenovo W520, previous laptops: MBP 15, Acer 6920G, Dell Inspiron 8200.
