    How to use this link to download the iso file

    I have a laptop pre-installed with Win 7 Home Premium.
    I have a set of they called Factory Default DVDs ( 4 of them.) So, I can use them to reinstall.
    But I am looking for an iso file download. I should have done that when Digital Rivers was still allowed to post all the iso files. Didn't think it was needed.

    Anyway, I have .............................
    1.)This LINK which is for Retail versions. It is not applicable to me.

    2.) Also this link but no clue how to use it to download the iso.
    I clicked at the link I wanted and all I got was a page of gibberish.

    Thank you.

    There's a 3rd party DR mirror that was found to have the 7 Home Premium, Pro, and Ultimate editions in both 32/64 bit flavors that include SP1 but will require an SP1 OEM key if that is what the laptop came with! That means it was bought either in mid 2010 or later with 7 on it after the one service pack was out. Any key prior to SP1 simply won't work with these.

    You will need to look in the second paragraph which is actually the "en" for English language torrent files on the page seen at Microsoft DigitalRiver Mirror

    There you need to watch when picking from the four links for the torrent file for each since there is the "dvd" and there is also the "dvd u" much like for 7 N HP rather then 7 HP. A 3rd party torrent downloader like RT Torrent found at the MS online store is free as well as a second program seen next to that at the store page which you then use to browse to where you download the torrent file to.

    When going to look at this thread I found the mistake I made earlier of seeing the "dvd u" downloaded here. Once you have the torrent program downloaded and installed and then go for the torrect file all you do is simply right click on the torrent file itself to select the "open with" option where FF or your other default browser if not Edge or IE is the choice in addition to RT Torrent or the program you go with.
