windows 7 digital purchase

I am looking for a way to purchase a Windows 7 key online without actually buying a hard copy of it. Microsoft's website doesn't have it anywhere that I can find, only windows 8.


Thanks!

Hello,

Unfortunately, Microsoft or any retailer do not offer just the license for Windows 7, and since Windows 8 was released, the digital download of Windows 7 from Microsoft store was removed.  Per this page from Microsoft, you'll have to purchase another hard copy of Windows 7, through a retailer like NewEgg or TigerDirect.

Any links that claim to sell just the license or digital download are likely pirated/malware or just a redirect to a Windows 8 purchase page.

You can do a download of an official iso with SP1 from here, but in terms of buying the key, that's more difficult
