    And it will be great if the Win 7 product key gets me free Windows 10 -- but I thought from way back when, that it was an either-or deal?  You could use the key either on Win 7 or on Win 10, but not both?

    There's a differnce between what's allowed and what's working.

    It's working if you use the same key twice on a dual boot setup. It's not allowed though.

    Or was that an earlier upgrade deal?

    It was the initial upgrade deal, but when I last checked a few months ago, it was still working, after all these years.

    And with Win 7 no longer supported, does it matter?

    I'd say no. It's almost impossible these days to buy a Win 7 license that's not pirated, and MS doesn't care. So if you use your key to upgrade to Win 10, and want to buy a new Win 7 key for your dual boot setup, you have basically two options: either spend your money on a new license and support software piracy, or don't spend money on a new license and support your own wallet. Your choice makes no difference for Microsoft.

    It's not like I care if Win 7 updates are blocked, since there aren't any, any more.

    That's true, but getting access to them is a different question...

    M4600 service tag is 5691MQ1.  Express Service Code is 11261901385.

    T5500 service tag is 4WLJYQ1.  Express Service Code is 10678250377.

    As expected, no downloadable images for them.

  2. As ooms said, the generic image will work fine.

    The Dell images are nor really "custom images" either. There are only about 5 or 6 different Win 7 x64 images provided by Dell for all this multitude of models. So the image for the M4700 should work for the M4600 too, and the image for the T5510 should work for the T5500.

    But if you want me to double check for images specifically for the M4600 and the T5500, just drop me a PM with the service tags, and I'll have a look (however, I suspect that these models are just a tiny bit too old for Dell to provide recovery OS downloads).

    As for Win 10, I think it's still free for Win 7 users. Just give it a try. Do a clean install, and enter the Win 7 product key. The 20H2 Update will be released within a few days from now (unless MS finds some last minute showstopper again). If you want to avoid a major update sessin next week, wait for another few days.

    I am looking for US version of Office Home and Business 2010 to download. Any file namer or hash I can google search for it.

    I saved the MD5 hashes for the Digital River downloads back in the day:


    However, MD5 is no longer secure. Maybe it will still help.

  4. It's not yet renamed from "Office 365" to "Microsoft 365".

    MS updates the files every couple of months. Maybe they have already updated the files with M365 versions; maybe they haven't.

    I'll check before I next update the downloader. If the files are updated to M365, I'll do the renaming in the next version. But it doesn't make a difference for downloading. You'll receive the same file.

  5. Version 8.40 (4 October 2020): Added new Insider and developer versions up to build 20226; added more DELL models and images; added scroll bar to left/main pane when needed; updated CSS stylesheet; added SHA256 for newer images in ISO Tools; moved ad server from wincert.net to heidoc.net (future use).

    Hello, I have a query regarding windows 7, it is that you cannot download windows 7 professinal sp1 COEM and Spanish language and I would like to know if they will enable it, it is that you want to buy a windows license in gvgmall since it is within my wallet.

    license I want to buy:   https://es.gvgmall.com/microsoft-windows-7-pro-oem-cd-key.html?currency=USD

    download problems: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1QMeIN6GvSj95_SASYvbYRrU1Q_HgZa72?usp=sharing

    note: i speak spanish language.

    It's not yet unlocked.

    However, there are plenty other Spanish Win 7 editions unlocked (Home Basic, Home Premium).

    Better grab one of those while available.

    I have other questions, the COEM isos have the tool that you can reinstall windows with any disk of it right? Or what is the difference?

    Yes, you can install both OEM and retail versions with both COEM and retail images.

    As I said before, I've never researched the exact difference between these files. Maybe someone else knows.

    I suspect it becomes relevant if you're an OEM reseller., for example that resellers are not allowed to preinstall the retail version on devices that they sell. But that's just a guess and pure speculation.

    Is there any way to download the Office 2007 Ultimate last original iso in spanish?

    Not through the download tool. It's been removed for several years now.

    You can use the hashes and file name info from our downlods dump to try and find the file elsewhere.

    US version: https://www.heidoc.net/php/myvsdump_details.php?id=P48F41677Ax86Les

    Rest-of-world version: https://www.heidoc.net/php/myvsdump_details.php?id=P48F10900Ax86Les

    The brazilian versions of windows 7 will be available yet or did i miss the download time for these versions? (from home basic to ultimate). 

    These haven't been generated yet. All downloads are active for 24 hours, so you've not missed the download time.

    To be sure not to miss the download window, it's more than sufficient to check twice per day until the Win 7 downloads have disappeared for this round (probably around 6 or 7 October).

    I have a question because I don't want to download all the version of windows 7.

    Are not the W7Pro x64 and the W7Ult x64 the same? The only difference is the ei.cfg configuration, right?

    I mean, I just have to clear the ei.cfg to have al the versions, right?

    Correct. The file ei.cfg is the only difference between the images. (There might be more diffrences in the OEM images, but I've never investigated that.)

    The W7HomePremium and W7starter are also identical btw.

    You can clear the file ei.cfg from within the ISO downloader. Use the orange disc shaped button labeled "ISO Tools".

    By the way, it's been 10 months now since the Windows 7 end of support. Last time that MS removed unsupported software from the API was after the Office 2007 end of life. Now this month will see the end of Office 2010 end of life. Therefore, extrapolating from the past, there's some real danger now that Windows 7 and Office 2007 will be removed by MS very soon. You should grab all images you might need in the future this month.
