Windows 7 Download Question

Good day...

I want to purchase and install Windows 7 on my computer. I would like to purchase it from some reputable company and download the software and activation key. I don't want to wait for it to come through the mail. Any suggestions of legit companies that can do this? Any suggestion on best price would be helpful as well.

If you are in the US, try a company such as Best Buy.

You can get Windows 7 online from Software King.


I purchased a license and DVD for Windows 7 Pro 64-bit for a Virtual Machine 6 months ago. Their product is legitimate and trouble free.

Call Dell Computers.. They'll sell you a copy and send you a download link.

You can download legitimate copies of various versions of the Windows 7 ISO immediately from DigitalRiverContent.net.

Pick the right one according to the license key you plan on buying:

Windows 7 Home Premium (x86) – X17-24208 (With SP1):

Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) – X17-24209 (With SP1):

Windows 7 Professional (x86) – X17-59183 (With SP1):

Windows 7 Professional (x64) – X17-59186 (With SP1):

Windows 7 Ultimate (x86) – X17-59463 (With SP1):

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) – X17-59465 (With SP1):

You can install it immediately. When you are prompted for the license key, click on "Skip" and proceed through the installation.

You have 30 days to activate Windows with a legitimately purchased product key before Windows will start nagging you with the "You may have been a victim of software counterfeiting" warning.

You can now purchase an OEM copy of Windows from a reputable dealer like Best Buy, NewEgg etc., and wait for it to arrive. When it arrives, use the product key to activate your copy of Windows.

Dear Frosty555,

I tried all of your links and they are all dead. can you provide an update to these links. I am very excited about the possibilities. This is just what I'm looking for.

@pcwizz1 - Please read all the posts above. I gave you a working link to Software King and I have purchased from them.

Digital River is a web front for Microsoft and Microsoft is not selling Windows 7 through that channel so far as I know.

Hi Thinkpads_User,

Thank you for the help. I just took a look and it seems that the only Win7 they have is professional @ $149. Unfortunately that is a bit high for my budget. My intent was to save some time with a direct download. But perhaps I need to be patient and just order the DVD online and wait a few days for it to arrive.

Any other downloadable options would be most welcome.

Thanks for you assistance...

I looked at their site (as I have purchased from Software King before) and they offer Direct Download links as well as DVD. So you can purchase now and download now.

I did not see Windows Home, but at the end of the day, you are better off with Pro anyway.
