Anyone know where I can find a Windows 7 Professional ISO for a 64 bit system? I have a key which came with my Dell Optip
lex 7010 desktop. Thanks and sorry if this question has been asked previously.

Thanks. Tried the link with my key and was directed to contact Dell.

For the record:

I personally would not consider the link rayal49 provided. Sure you might can use them for downloads, but don't buy any keys from them. And the fact they sell potentially counterfeit keys makes them questionable as to whether their downloads are not full of malware.

I'm not risking the high chance at getting counterfeit copies that will eventually be blacklisted and deactivated by Microsoft. My advice is work with MS or your OEM dealer, never trust anyone else.

Hi,
just to test it, I downloaded a copy of windows 7 from Heidoc , checked it with 2 virus/malware scanners-nothing found.
Installed on a virtual machine and activated it with my original windows 7 activation code. Everything went ok, no problems.

The MD5 HASH keys are available on the web. I suggest you check the MD5 hash of the ISO you download with a tool like winmd5free. If the key matches then your ISO is a non-tampered original.

Win 7 SP1 x64 English Media Editions are 3,243,070KB
X17-58997.iso Home Premium MD5 hash: da319b5826162829c436306bebea7f0f
X17-59186.iso Professional MD5 hash: ed15956fe33c13642a6d2cb2c7aa9749
X17-59465.iso Ultimate MD5 hash: c9f7ecb768acb82daacf5030e14b271e

It is never a good idea to just buy a key unless it is directly from Microsoft.

download from their official site rather than other links that potentially contains malicious scripts
