      Does this windows 7 Version works with my OEM keys? Please answer

    it depends on what edition of Win7 you are installing
    what edition are you installing? Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate
    yes OEM keys also work when running Win7 setup but again it depends on the edition

    I am unable to download this?

    you're too late - MS had removed the Win7 ISO downloads earlier this August; can't download the W7 ISOs from MS anymore
    saw this in another forum


    If you go to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows7 (where the ability to download an ISO should be), you get redirected to the EOL for Windows 7 screen. MSDN doesn't work either.

    I kind of remember that too. Also, any update on Windows 11 Downloads? I only find sdks. 

    no Win11 ISO downloads until final release in late October 2021.

    although there were W11 insider preview ISOs (w/ build 22000.132) that were made available from MS several days ago in late August

    Yes, it's gone.

    Since MS is going to pull MSIE from Win 11, more changes need to be done. Please wait for an official announcement about the ISO Downloader.

    In the mean time, I've set up a Gofundme to cover the cost of a Visual Studio subscription (formerly MSDN). My first tests have revealed that download links from MSDN can be shared, so there's still hope to get Win 7 back - if the funding goal can be met.



    I had a feeling this day would come when MS would eventually remove the Win7 ISO downloads from their web site once Win7 went EOL

    Good thing I already downloaded the W7 ISOs several years ago while Win7 was still supported by MS

    I agree completely with everything you say. Microsoft is detestable. Not only do they force unwanted updates which damage computers, but they also have zero liability and even worse they don't care one bit. Their support site is a joke.

    that's what happens when Microsoft got rid of their QA team several years ago.  the quality of updates for most Win10 versions have gone down some (the March 2021 updates caused blue screen errors for some & have also caused several printing issues and had to release some out-of-band updates to clean up their mess)

    Now 21H1 is about to be released, and I think that could trigger another forced upgrade for old releases. If I remember right, these releases have a life span of 1.5 years, meaning, you can only use 2004 for another couple of months before the next forced upgrade is due. Therefore, it could be better to upgrade straight to 20H2, which will last 6 more months until early 2022.

    speaking of the upcoming 21H1 release Jan, Microsoft has recently announced that they're getting ready to release it soon


    We are preparing the Windows 10 May 2021 Update (version 21H1) for release. We believe that Build 19043.928 is the final build for the May 2021 Update, and the media for this build can be downloaded here.

    there are also 21H1 preview ISOs (with build 19043.928) available from MS for Windows Insiders as noted by MS (the current Windows ISO downloader tool does not download these updated 21H1 ISOs though)

    Why can't Windows 7 download?


    The Internet tells you to download the Windows 7 ISO here.
    But why am I not down?

    Please reply

    you can only download the Win7 ISOs from MS on the 1st day of each month only (aka. April 1, May 1, June 1, etc)
    on all other days, the Win7 ISOs are not available for download due to severe restrictions by MS

    next chance for you is May 1

    it would be very useful if you add windows 10 ARM to windows iso downloader tool 😉

    Win10 ISO downloads for ARM platform are not publicly available as Jan mentioned that months ago.

    however, they are only available to Insiders (need an MS Insider account to get them; normal/casual users won't have access to them)

    A clean install is best, if you upgrade from Home to Pro you may be missing some stuff. For example many of the "Groups" in "Local Users and Groups" (lusrmgr.msc) are missing.

    plus the ability to delay or defer feature updates or upgrades in Win10 Pro
    Win10 Home starting with the 1903 release only had ability to pause updates but not have the option to defer big feature updates

    Setember continue unavaible Windows 7 Pro SP1 and Pro SP1 Upgrade, and Windows 7 (August 2018) only US English, i need all pt-br and logo start traditional

    come back on OCT 1st and try to download the pt-br win7 iso then, SimPos
    many win7 iso downloads only work on 1st day of each month (ex. 9/1, 10/1, 11/1, etc.)

    Thanks. I know this error, and thoroughly investigated multiple times. It's caused by other software on your computer, or one of the other root causes listed in the FAQ entry. It's you local connection issue, and not a bug.

    perhaps a connection issue between nod3's PC and the MS server and needs to check with his internet provider
    maybe clear the dns cache with ipconfig.exe /flushdns and then restart the computer (or even restart his internet router)

    I'm not experiencing the problem he had as the Windows ISO Downloader tool is working fine 4 me and I can't reproduce the problem 🙂

  10. the Aug. 2018 Win7 SP1 ISOs are only available in USA English - not available for foreign (non-English) languages.  they are also "standalone" editions that bundle a single edition and are NOT AIOs (so the ei.cfg removal trick won't work with the Aug 2018 ISOs because ei.cfg is actually not present in these ISOs)
    they also contain certain win7 "telemetry" updates which some people despise 

    original Win7 SP1 ISOs (not the Aug 2018 ones) can be used as AIOs with the ei.cfg removal trick - and these older Win7 ISOs are available in many languages

    they could be released either in mid-May or June since 2004/20H1 did not even reach the RP ring and is still in the Slow ring for almost 4 months

    Version 2004 has finally reached the release preview ring Thu April 16 as build 19041.207 - aka. May 2020 Update

    2004 ISOs with the 19041.207 build will first be available only to windows insiders & MSDN subscribers in late April and then a public release sometime in May (perhaps either Tue May 12 or May 19, neither of which happened on a Tuesday in May).

    also MS decided to make 19041.208 the final version on 4/30,  then released build 19041.264 on 5/12 and ultimately ended up releasing the 19041.264 build to the public near the end of May

  12. sorry - HP OEM based Win7 ISOs are not available for download like Dell - heck not even Microsoft provides OEM based Win7 ISO downloads as they said so themselves


    Microsoft does not supply Windows 7 ISO downloads for OEM preinstalled operating system Product Keys for Dell, HP, etc. machines

    edit 4/16 - you have to either buy win7 system recovery DVD images from HP (if they still have them available for your specific HP model) or google search for an hp win7 oem iso if you are lucky enough to find one compatible for your HP computer

    yeah, after installing I noticed that I had the correct build (1909 build 18363.418). I also read somewhere that 1903 updates also apply to 1909, is that right?


    that's correct, jvidal.


    What's new for Windows 10, version 1909 and Windows 10, version 1903 release notes

    Windows 10, versions 1903 and 1909 share a common core operating system and an identical set of system files. As a result, the new features in Windows 10, version 1909 were included in the recent monthly quality update for Windows 10, version 1903 (released October 8, 2019), but are currently in a dormant state. These new features will remain dormant until they are turned on using an enablement package, which is a small, quick-to-install “master switch” that simply activates the Windows 10, version 1909 features.

    To reflect this change, the release notes for Windows 10, version 1903 and Windows 10, version 1909 will share an update history page. Each release page will contain a list of addressed issues for both 1903 and 1909 versions. Note that the 1909 version will always contain the fixes for 1903; however, 1903 will not contain the fixes for 1909. This page will provide you with the build numbers for both 1909 and 1903 versions so that it will be easier for support to assist you if you encounter issues.
