I found an evaluation vhd file for Server 2008 R2 but not for Windows 7.  Help finding the URL would be very appreciated.

Please find it from below URL.

After downloading, run the executable to extract the VHD image to a folder named Windows7Fullx86Ent90Days. This folder will contain all the files necessary to install the evaluation image. You can now add the VHD package as a new virtual machine to your Hyper-V installation using Hyper-V Manager.

the link I was given brings me to a 3GB download of a file named x17-59465.iso.  I don't see how an iso file gets me to the vhd file I am looking for.

If you would have responded here with this information, we could have helped to respond.

That .iso looks to be for "Windows 7 Ultimate x64 English". I stand by the original answer of mine in http:#36590947. Outside of technet, I am not aware of any legit sites to DL this from.....
