Digital Rivers is the only Official place I know of. Here are the links for Vista (please read the whole page for instructions on how to use their arrangement.
ie: you must download all 3 files).

Links for W7:

And you might want to read this short "article" about downloading Windows ISO's.

Rather than put my business at risk obtaining media for clients in an unsanctioned manner, I get the media from the client or have the client obtain the media if they need to (from the PC maker, or a new from a store.  If they used an operating system that is no longer sold, then they need to get the newest operating system.  There's a proviso in some licenses that require the media be obtained by the end user through legal methods.  One can argue the definition of this, but I prefer erring on the side of caution and placing the responsibility on the end user, where I feel it belongs.  I'll re-install, they have to provide what they were given or should have backed up.
