HP Pavilion 500-205t CTO Desktop PC
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

My Win 7 computer (HP Pavilion desktop) boots OK. But the one application I need, won't load. It worked for about 5 years. But now when I double click, I just get a windows support Message Box. So I'd like to try reloading windows. I've been trying to find a place to download the ISO's for Win 7(64-bit). But so far, it's just been broken links and frustration.

If someone could get me headed in the right direction, that would much appreciated. BTW, I've got the windows 7 product key.

Thanks,

Rod

Hi, Rod:

 

You didn't mention what version of W7 you need (Home or Pro).

 

What I have done is to provide the links to both versions.  Select the one you need.

The links will be good for 24 hours from the time of this reply.

 

These files are the revised ISO's from 2018 which are too large to fit on a standard DVD, so use the free Rufus utility to transfer the ISO file to an 8 GB USB flash drive so that it is bootable.

You can leave the Rufus screen set up the way you see it in the illustration if you are installing W7 in UEFI mode.

 

If you are installing W7 in Legacy mode, change the partition scheme from GPT to MBR.

Thanks for the links. But when I click on them, I get a

404 - File or directory not found.

You're very welcome.

 

Sorry about that....

 

Apparently, the link generator is not working for some reason.

 

This link is for W7 Home Premium...scroll to the bottom and select the blue W7 64 bit download.

 

This is the old ISO file of around 3.1 GB

 

Windows 7 Home Premium Free Download ISO 32 Bit 64 Bit (getintopc.com)

 

This link is for W7 Pro...

 

Windows 7 Professional Free Download ISO 32 / 64 Bit (getintopc.com)

 

When you use Microsoft Edge, it is going to report the W7 Home Premium file is not safe to download.

 

Click on the 3 dots and select keep>keep anyway and the file will download.
