    The file was downloaded a few days ago before Rufus was installed. The select button allows me to navigate to where the file is, but Rufus can't see it. I tried moving the file from downloads to desktop and tried again with same results. I read on Rufus site that I have to check for updates to see ISO, which I did. When I choose all files I can some other files on desktop but not the one I need the ISO.

    Let's make sure the file is not corrupt. You'll find the hashes as published by Microsoft here:


    If your file has a different hash, you should download it again. If it has the same hash, we can investigate further.

    At Midnight Tonight January 10th starts.
    Microsoft ends support for Windows 7 Editions
    Does this mean these generated iso links won't be able to be done anymore?
    is it pretty much to late?


    For a definite answer, you might want to contact Microsoft and ask them when they plan to shut down the downloads API. Everything else is speculation.

    (My personal speculation is that it's too late. But let's wait and see what happens on 1 February.)

    I think it is currently unavailable to download, or I'm doing something wrong?

    Correct. A few Office 2010 downloads are still available from links that were created yesterday, which will have disappeared by the end of day. But Windows 7 is already gone for the month. Depending on when exactly MS shuts down the downloads API after Windows 7 end-of-life, downloads might or might not come back on February 1.

    Thanks. And what version of Windows 10 should I put so that the information is not deleted during the update and there are no unnecessary applications, such as the Store and games?

    Do you want to download Win 7 or Win 10? Win 10 is always available. If you download Home/Pro, you will get an all-in-one disc. 

    If you want to preserve your data and applications, you must follow one of the supported upgrade paths: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/upgrade/windows-10-upgrade-paths

    If your desired upgrade path is not supported, you can delete the file cversion.ini from the iso image. Afterwards, all upgrade paths will be supported.

    To avoid installing unnecessary applications, better ask again on the Win 10 board. It might be possible to create a custom installer for Windows 10, but I don't know how.

    Guys how to download the image of Windows 7 ?? I do not know English well, the program gives an error.

    At the start of each month. You have just missed the downloads. Only a few editions can be provided for the first 6 days of each month. As for this month, all Windows 7 downloads have been used up already. Next opportunity will be on 1 January. This is most likely the last opportunity, since Windows 7 will reach its end of life.

    Can anyone tell me the difference between OEM and COEM?  Thanks!


    There are a number of (conflicting) explanations on Google. I'm sure I also answered on the forum what I believe is the correct meaning of COEM. Only MS will know the definite answer.

    A particular W7 Pro x64 download from the Dell set keeps failing for me. I have tried it 3 times today and each time it dies between 5.9 and 6.7Gb (of 7.5Gb). I have a  very fast and very stable cable internet connection with no D/L limit. Does anyone have any suggestions please?

    Use a download manager.

    If the error persists, wait for Dell to fix it.

    And if you did have a valid PURCHASED product key, you'd be downloading it from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows7

    About 99.9% of all prurchased and legitimate Windows 7 keys won't give you any download on that page.

    Similar question to BelalAShareb. I have W7 Pro SP1, with an OEM licence. Do I need to get the COEM version?  Can I D/L the 'August 2018"'version?  That seems to be available. Thanks!

    No, just go for whatever is available. Both COEM and retail images accept both COEM and retail keys for installation and activation.

    The August 2018 version would also work just fine.
