Windows 7 With Service Pack 1 Direct Downloads

If you have bought a computer with the Windows 7 operating system or a standalone version of the operating system in the past, you have probably by now upgraded your systems with the Service Pack 1 for the OS that was released in February by Microsoft.

Some owners may wonder if there is a way to download an integrated solution, for the case that they need to reinstall their operating system at a later point in time. If they do not have an integrated solution, they need to first install Windows 7 and then run all the updates online to get it patches and updated to the latest version. The operating system would be ready for use faster if Windows 7 could be installed with the SP1 integrated already.

That's also the way to go forward for IT departments and networks, considering that bandwidth costs might shot through the roof if all network PCs needed to download the service pack 1 update from the Internet after operating system installation.

One option would be to slipstream the Service Pack 1 of Windows 7 and other updates. But that's a technical process that takes some time. And, it is not really necessary anymore as Microsoft has made available direct downloads of Windows 7 versions that include the SP1. (note, some users may still want to slipstream, for instance to add specific drivers or tools to the installation process).

All downloads are provided as digital ISO images which need to be burned to a DVD. Windows users can use the built-in ISO burner of the Windows 7 operating system for that or any other DVD burner software that supports burning ISO images (like ImgBurn).

Update: Microsoft seems to have removed all Windows 7 ISO download links from Digital River. Downloads are no longer available, and we have removed links as a consequence.

Update 2: Check out a new method to download Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 ISO images directly from Microsoft. It is the best option right now to download these images to your local system.

Update 3: Links are available again.

Here are the downloads:

  • Windows 7 Home Premium x86 SP1 (bootable)
  • Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1 (bootable)
  • Windows 7 Professional x86 SP1 (bootable)
  • Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1 (bootable)
  • Windows 7 Ultimate x86 SP1 (bootable)
  • Windows 7 Ultimate X64 SP1 (bootable)

The Windows 7 SP1 downloads come with a 30-day trial period, after which you need to enter a product key to continue using the operating system. The downloads are also handy if you have only received a 32-bit copy of your operating system, or no copy at all.

Update 3: And the downloads are gone again. Microsoft has created a page where you can request a Windows 7 ISO image. You need to supply a valid product key during the process though.

Update 3:_

    is it possible to include the size and hashes (SHA1/MD5/etc) for the ISOs above?

    it's good to compare after download.

    thanks!

    Last week, I had to reinstall Windows 7 SP1 to a friend. I spent endless hours in the updates ... And SP1 ... It's funny to find the ISO aujourh'hui ...

    Thank you very much, I'm sure it will again.

    By cons, davilim same query as if it were possible to have the hashes and accurate file size.

    Thank you very much.

    Are these legal download link?
    Cause since two weeks I am trying to find legal downloadable copy but can't find one. So I ended up downloading one from torrent.

    P.S. I have legal license key, just lost my original DVD disk.

    Do these version comes with pt-br language installed by default? I'm in need of an iso since my dvd worn out.

  5. Jordan Humberto de Souza July 31, 2011 at 10:49 pm #

    Seems that is not available... =\ I think it will be no problem if i download it with the MUI... sadly I dont know the size of it nor where to find out.

  6. Jordan Humberto de Souza July 31, 2011 at 11:09 pm #

    On the MSDN it would be pt_windows_7_ultimate_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_677358.iso , but dont know about the msft version name =\

    • Martin Brinkmann August 1, 2011 at 8:21 am #

      Jordan, how different are the versions anyway? Is that like American and UK English? Always wondered about this ;)

      • ReX August 1, 2011 at 2:09 pm #

        Well, European Portuguese is not exactly Greek for us, but there are a lot of "funny" words out there.
        I guess it is a lot like en_US vs. en_UK, even their accents differ in a similar way.

      • Jordan Humberto de Souza August 1, 2011 at 4:42 pm #

        Rex is totally correct. Many expressions and common names are too much different from each other. Accent is the most evident part. As we can read both and even understand great part of it. But is somehow weird like they right names like "File" > PT-PT = Ficheiro, PT-BR = Arquivo.

      • Martin Brinkmann August 1, 2011 at 4:45 pm #

        Thanks for explaining to you both ;)

    You're welcome ;3

    all languages packages can be dl'd any time from the M$ site (you do need to be verified as genuine) that is also no problem...every link from digitalriver is legit... all you need to install is your KEY. or leave blank and default to 30 days. last time i check every language was included you select when you install.
    Thanks for the Links Martin ...
    slipstream went out with XP. I use WAIK today. faster-easier.

  9. Dotan Cohen August 2, 2011 at 12:54 pm #

    I find it suspicious that the links are not to a Microsoft website. Are these .iso images not available from Microsoft? How can one trust these random websites?

    My wife's new Lenovo laptop came with Windows 7 64 bit, but there was no option to purchase install media. I'm glad Martin found these as I know the day will come when she has will have to reinstall. But I'd like to know that they are clean from MS and have not been tampered with.

    Also, I do not remember ever seeing a license key for this machine. Is it possible to get the license key from the original OS and use it in one of these .iso installations? Should I contact Lenovo?

    Thanks.

      If you open the start menu and right click "Computer", then click "Properties" from the context menu. This will open a window about your computer, at the bottom you should see the serial Key in use.

      As for the legitimacy of these downloads, I'm as worried as you are. They sound very useful, and I need to do a fresh install soon, but I can't find them on any official Microsoft site.

      Try this:

      About 2/3 down the page Beta version of ABR with Windows 7 support .....

  10. Dotan Cohen August 2, 2011 at 6:43 pm #

    Thanks, Al. This Windows install is in Hebrew, the very last field in that window I would translate as "Product Identity". The number stated is of the format "OEM-1234567-12345-12345". Does that look about right? Nothing else looks like a serial key in there.

  11. Dotan Cohen August 2, 2011 at 9:57 pm #

    Thank you. It looks to me then that this OEM install does not have a product key. I'll contact Lenovo. Martin, it is a good thing that you catalyzed me to move now, before there are problems. Thanks!

    Martin,

    Mike made a good point in another post about the value of having OS install disks with service packs included for the purpose of running system file checker.

    I have XP with SP3 disks and now I have access (thru your helpful post) for Windows 7. How about Vista? Is there a similar method to obtain that OS with service pack 1 or 2 included?

    Thanks,

    Jim Carter

    the size for WAIK is rather big; 1 GB ?

  14. William Donnelly August 25, 2011 at 6:46 pm #

    Is it possible to have windows 2000 and windows 7 on the same disk. I have a new comp. with new hard drive and i would like to keep a lot of my 2000 files. I have downloaded link for professional. This is my first try at opening link and installing it. Any help would be much appreciated.

    • Martin Brinkmann August 25, 2011 at 7:24 pm #

      I have not tried it, but I'd say it is possible if you pick different directories. You still may need to edit the boot loader though.
