WINDOWS 7 DOWNLOAD FROM DIGITAL RIVER DOESN'T SEEM TO BE WORKING AT THIS TIME

I followed the links from this site to Digital River and downloaded Windows 7 one of my computers on the 22 Jan 2014.  I require another version of Windows 7 for another computer of mine.  Last night 29 Jan 2014 the link lead me to a site that showed 

"The Page or File You Requested Could Not Be Provided The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable. 
HTTP Error 404 - File or directory not found.

Download the appropriate Windows 7 .ISO file which includes Service Pack 1
(Note: must match what your product key version is for)


How to find out if I have a 32 or 64Bit version of Windows installed on my computer:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/find-out-32-or-64-bit


Windows 7 Home Premium 32Bit:  http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-58996.iso
    SHA1 Hash value: 6071B4553FCF0EA53D589A846B5AE76743DD68FC
Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit:  http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-58997.iso
    SHA1 Hash value: 6C9058389C1E2E5122B7C933275F963EDF1C07B9


Windows 7 Professional 32Bit: http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-59183.iso
    SHA1 Hash value: D89937DF3A9BC2EC1A1486195FD308CD3DADE928
Windows 7 Professional 64Bit: http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-59186.iso
    SHA1 Hash value: 0BCFC54019EA175B1EE51F6D2B207A3D14DD2B58


Windows 7 Ultimate 32Bit: http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-59463.iso
    SHA1 Hash value: 65FCE0F445D9BF7E78E43F17E441E08C63722657
Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit: http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-59465.iso
    SHA1 Hash value: 36AE90DEFBAD9D9539E649B193AE573B77A71C83


1) After downloading the correct .iso file install HashCalc and validate the SHA1 hash value
is correct. If the download is not corrupt, the value HashCalc returns will match the SHA1 value I posted.

2) Next use ImgBurn or Gear ISO to create a bootable DVD.

ImgBurn - In addition to supporting the creation of Cds/DVDs from .ISO files,
it supports a wide range of other image file formats, and it's free.
(BIN, CUE, DI, DVD, GI, IMG, MDS, NRG, PDI and ISO)

(The steps are the same for Windows 7 or Windows 8), except you are not creating a Repair disc but a full installation DVD)


Note: Always use high quality DVD+R media and the slowest burn speed (4x or 6x) if offered a choice.

Hi,

The Windows 7 ISO download links provided in this thread were originally made available for a specific program.  We’ve learned that the resource is valuable for customers beyond the initial intent. 

While the links are not intended to be a permanent solution, the download links will continue to be available as we assess potential alternatives.  We recommend users save the ISO locally if you anticipate needing it again in the future. You will, of course, be required to have a valid Windows 7 product key to activate Windows, and will be subject to the conditions of the license associated with the product key you purchased.

Thank you.
