i have a legit home premium key that i bought through the student deal, but no disc. what's a good way to get a complete, virgin, safe 64-bit image? is it legal to do this or should i pay $13 to MS for them to send me one?
well, i figured how to make a bootable ISO out of the files i DL'd when i purchased it... which basically seems to be the same thing you have linked. nice to have if i need the 32-bit version, though. thanks. will they work for retail and upgrade keys?
No, it comes as an .exe which starts up a program that downloads an ISO into a temporary folder which you can then burn to a disk.
That being said, my version of Windows 7 from MSDNAA allowed me to choose what I wanted to install during the installer, however when I selected Ultimate not realising I only have a key for Professional I had to re-install again to get it activated.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
