Users can buy Windows 7 genuine licenses online now. After which Windows 7 is delivered to the registered user through Electronic Software Distribution (ESD) channel entirely via Internet. The user can than download the Windows 7 installation files from the online store from which they have purchased Windows 7.
We have seen before, that the download of Windows 7 setup files available via ESD are in a “box” format, consisted of an executable (.exe) file, setup1.box and setup2.box (available both in 32-bit Windows 7 installation files and 64-bit Windows 7 installation files), which cannot be burned to a DVD disk directly or mount to any virtual drive. Though there is a way to create a bootable Windows 7 DVD ISO image from these downloaded Windows 7 installation files.
Though Microsoft has provided Windows 7 ISO (the disk image of Windows 7 DVD media) to its customers but those links were dynamic download links so they were not usable for everyone. Windows 7 now started appearing in the online stores such as Amazon, Digital River, etc for selling Windows 7 license and distribution of Windows 7 via the ESD channel. They distribute Windows 7 ISO disk image and the good news is that the links that they offer are static. So anyone can download official Windows 7 ISO disk image without any fear of getting a Trojan laden disk image that are available via shady sources like torrents.
