Where can I get FREE Windows ISO file download. Microsoft Action Pack Licenses do not work on install

Trying to install windows 7 pro or ultimate on a new SSD drive. I have a problem installing as it stops during the installation. IF...IF...IF...If the disk is scratched which is one of the possibilities. Is there a place to get an ISO file downloaded FREE. I went to the Microsoft site and saw the download location for ISO files but when I entered in my key code. It fails because my license is from a Microsoft Action Package. So the key codes do not work there on the Microsoft ISO site.  https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows7
Is there another location I can download this safely that would accept an Action Pack license subscription....?

You should be able to download that by logging into your Action Pack account.  I believe that Windows 7 is still on there.

As I recall the action pack license requires you to stay current.  You can't be running old software.  Windows 7 is old software.

If you bought a volume license for Windows 10 Pro you could simply sign in to the Volume License Service Center and download the ISO for previous versions.  They'd even have your key.

Yes, Action Pack requires to be current within 6 months or so, so there is no way to get a W7 license that way.
