windows 7 install discs?
 
is there a place to download legitimate windows 7 discs? my friend needs a fresh install but can't find his disc. we have the cd-key etc. i was just going to put it on a bootable usb for him, but all the copies i can find online are pre-activated/cracked.

microsoft actually doesn't have them, you have to buy the OS again if you want to download it. they apparently don't give any support for oem installs either.

thanks, i actually have this iso already, i was just concerned because the install appears to show up as genuine even without a product key.


on a side note, i'm collecting tools to put in after the install, is there a good standalone antivirus? one where i don't have to use an internet connection to complete installation? i think avast used to have one but the only full tools i can find for download on their site are anti-rootkits.

It is probably genuine cause of the 30 days thingy.
you can check it with start -> run -> slimgr.vbs /dli
Just activate it in the start -> computer -> right click properties -> Activate windows now or something like that
It'll prompt for you to enter the key

everything went well with the install. they actually had a recovery partition from the manufacturer but we couldn't access it. windows was properly validated using their product key and i now have a nifty little usb stick that can install any version of x64 windows 7.
