Download Windows 7

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I bought a windows 7 ultimate CD/Key before but my CD recently got scratched and doesn't want to install a fresh copy as I am getting errors when trying to install windows on my SSD. I'm wondering if there is any place I could download the retail CD (iso) and burn it to a DVD so I could install windows, I already have the same key it came with here.

Not Legally, you can contact MS and they can send you replacement media which is usually around 30 bux or so I believe.

Dam $30 for a new disk, thought there was a place to get the retail ISO for issues like this.

I'm not sure, but I know I can download my copies off the MS site legally. It is the .ISO, I had purchased it through the Ultimate Steal deal and I've had to re-download the ISO multiple times whenever I build a new rig. There may be a way you can with a legit key... otherwise just d/l a torrent of the retail ISO and put your legally purchased key in?

That's the thing, I don't really download from many torrent sites but the one I do doesn't have a retail iso.

How scratched up is the disc? If it is minor, just rub some white toothpaste on the disc, rinse clean, and dry it. It may work again.

What you can do is get any retail version of Windows 7. Open up the .iso with an app like PowerISO. Navigate to \\sources. Open up ei.cfg in a text editor and change the version to Ultimate under EditionID.

For example, mine says:

Code:
[EditionID]
Professional
[Channel]
Retail
[VL]
0
Change it to
Code:
[EditionID]
Ultimate
[Channel]
Retail
[VL]
0
You could also delete ei.cfg, and you can select any version (i.e. Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate) every time you reinstall.
