I personally wouldn't think twice about using a dodgy source when I legally have the key. However OP, as you have the disc already, using poweriso would be the simplest method.
Torrents are fine on the forum... piracy talk isn't. Not all torrents are used for piracy. There are hundreds of linux otrrents on piratebay.
Torrents are great, I was able to download all the ISO's for the OEM and retail versions of XP, so when i work on people computers and need to reinstall, i just pop in the right disk and grab the key from the side of their computer.
when you buy windows, you aren't paying for the disk, you are paying for the CD key. so downloading the disk isn't a big deal when you have a legit key of your own.
I have a nice copy of window 7 from MSDN that has every version of 64bit windows on it.
but I install enterprise for my computer. <----it is legal.
