In this article, learn how to download the Windows 7 SP1 ISO directly from Microsoft’s Website. The only catch is that you’ll need a valid product key in order to download the file–and OEM keys (like the one that came on a sticker under your laptop) won’t work. If that’s you, go to the next section.
How To Download the Windows 7 SP1 ISO Directly From Microsoft’s Website
If you do have a valid retail key, following these steps:
1. Visit the Windows 7 download page, type your product key, and then click “Verify” to start the download process.
2. After your product key is verified, choose the product language you want to download. Click “Confirm”.
3. After that, select whether you want the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows 7.
Keep in mind that download links generated by the page are only valid for 24 hours.
After downloading the Windows 7 SP1 ISO file, you can burn it to a DVD by right-clicking it in Windows Explorer and clicking “Burn disc image” to burn it to a disc. If you want to install Windows 7 from a USB drive, the best method is to use the Rufus tool to put that ISO file onto a USB drive.
