I see Windows 7 at Tiger Direct

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5213934

and also at Amazon

http://www.amazon.com/microsoft-windows-7-8-software/b?ie=UTF8&node=1286119011

But you have to purchase it (including a Key). It is not available for free download.

You can not download Windows 7 legally anywhere without buying a license.  If you already have a license and need a CD for installation you will have to call microsoft or a licensed retailer to get a CD.  For example, Dell will provide you a CD for one of their machines for a small fee.

It is illegal and probably very risky to download it anywhere else.

You can obtain it from Microsoft if you have access to MSDN. If you are a student you can get it from MSDN Dreamspark Premium A/c if it is setup by your university.

or you can download evaluation version (90 days) of Enterprise Edition from below link. It may ask you to create a login.

Technet Evaluation Center.

@rebelscum0000 - If you are going to purchase from Amazon, check the seller very carefully if you are not buying directly from Amazon. Email the seller to make sure they are selling a legitimate key. Just be very careful of your sources.

I purchased a Vista Business DVD (legal with Key) on eBay a while back, but I did verify with the seller first. I did not have any issues.

So I have posted an Amazon link, and I am suggesting you use due diligence.

Hi Expert

The problem is I live in Mexico City, Tiger Direct and Amazon does not ship to Mexico

I bought  2 licenses (Box Retail)

1 Windows 7 Professional English (32-64 Bits)
1 Windows 7 Ultimate Spanish (32-64 Bits)

Both Gold Or in others words without SP1

Dell is now offering Windows 8.1

MSDN I am not student, i will find out more about  the  evaluation version (90 days) of Enterprise Edition

Why is the risk to download from this link?

I do not have Windows 7 media but I do have my product key. How do I restore my computer?

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_install/i-do-not-have-windows-7-media-but-i-do-have-my/5ce13741-ac25-4969-ae82-2494726aac1c

Look for a retailer in Mexico.  Legitimate retailers can still sell Windows 7. That is probably the best way to go.

Rebel,
the digitalriver links from David are all good - why do you need further checksums?

The ISO's I've downloaded from there are of this size:
7 Home Prem 32bit - 2.5gb
7 Home Prem 64bit - 2.1gb
7 Pro Prem 32bit - 2.5gb
7 Pro Prem 64bit - 3.1gb
These are all the English (UK) versions, with SP1.

http://www.w7forums.com/threads/official-windows-7-sp1-iso-image-downloads.12325/ 

I wouldn't think that either the Spanish or US versions would be wildly different.  Try it and see!

It is straight from MSDN A/c. One can obtain it from msdn.microsoft.com. No public link but here is the screenshot to prove it's legit.

msdn
If you need it for sp1 let me know.
