Windows 7 (x86) 32-Bit And (x64) 64-Bit Direct Download Links [Updated]

windows7logoCustomers who buy Windows 7 online via Digital River or other online stores, receives the delivery of Windows 7 installation file through Electronic Software Distribution (ESD). User who only wants to download Windows 7 installation files via official and verified source and not from torrent sites can choose to download the ESD files instead.

Normally, Windows 7 setup installer that is downloaded via ESD channel is meant for upgrade version license or product key, and hence no ISO for burning to DVD or USB flash drive is provided. The direct download links to the Windows 7 operating system distributed via ESD channel have been leaked. The installation files of Windows 7 is hosted on the server on domain msft-dnl.digitalrivercontent.net owned by Digital River.

Each editions of Windows 7 has its own different and separate download links, and the setup installer package comes in 3 parts, which is an executable that starts the extraction or unpacking and installation process, plus setup1.box and setup2.box. After extracting all content to a folder named ExpandedSetup, the installation files should be the same with what has on a DVD.

I will suggest you to copy the download links and use a download manager to download these large files. Speed will depend on the load of the server.

Note: All the ISO images of Windows 7 DVDs contain all editions of the operating system. So, a 32-bit Windows 7 Home Premium edition ISO image has all 32-bit editions of Windows 7, and the 64-bit ISO has all the 64-bit editions. The easiest way to switch Windows 7 edition is to use a little portable application called Windows 7 ISO Edition Switcher. It can easily switch the ISO image downloaded to another edition of Windows 7. For example, you can turn a Home Premium edition into Ultimate, or Windows 7 Starter, or Windows 7 Professional. But, do remember that it is still necessary to have a valid product key to activate Windows 7.
