Download Windows 7 Disc Images (ISO Files)

I cannot verify my Windows 7 Ultimate that I bought off the Microsoft site some time ago.  I need to have a disc or ISO so that I can repair my system, and it will not accept the verified windows activation that my system is. 

Who can I contact for a disc to be sent to me.  A Windows repair disc is not doing what I want it to do.  The system works fine, but I need to get it back to the basics...



Download the correct ISO file and make your own disk and use the Product Key that is on the COA Sticker.

Download: Windows ISO Downloader.exe
Version: 6.00
Release Date: 11 April 2018
Requirements: Windows 7 or newer, .NET Framework 4.x, Internet Explorer 8 or newer.

Important: As of Version 6.00, we're adding back an experimental feature to generate links for Windows 7 and Office 2010. Generation of new links for these products is throttled, and not every download is always available in every language. New links are generated on a first come first served basis, with users who enable the idle resource donation getting preferential treatment. If you have further questions, please use the WinCert Forum to get in touch, so that other users can also benefit from the discussion.

And here are instructions on how to burn ISO images to disk:

Then do a clean install:


Using the downloaded ISO file Method may require phone Activation.

If it does require phone Activation, do not follow the Auto Prompts, but hold on for a real person to explain to as to what has been done for re-installation purposes

"How to Activate Windows 7 by Phone"

The above method also will require you to go to your Computer Manufacturer's website > Support and Downloads Section > locate your Model Number and Operating System > then download and install the latest Drivers for it.



Using the USB method in conjunction with the above Windows 7 download:

Or you can also borrow the exact same Retail Windows 7 Edition DVD and use your Product Key to reinstall.
