Preferred Solution: Digital river student download?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm in the same boat. I imagine they will stagger the downloads so as not to cause chaos on their servers, but I'm really hoping to install tonight! I will post if I get my email tonight.... anyone have any insider info??

I downloaded from Digital River yesterday with the student discount, and had the same problem as everyone else "unboxing" the download. I used the fix that's been circling round the forums and have got it installed and working. The only thing I'm missing is a product key. Wasn't Digital River supposed to give me one in my confirmation email? I've received nothing of the sort, and would really like to activate this product I've purchased. I have product keys from previous versions of Windows that I've bought, but the machine I installed Windows 7 on was using Linux as its main operating system. Any thoughts?

Ok, so I was finally able to get the main Expanded Setup file extracted.

But now I still have the 3 original files on my desktop... what do I do with them?

Also my expandedsetup file is this large:

Size: 3.01 GB (3,239,836,668 bytes)

Size on disk: 3.01 GB (3,241,648,128 bytes)

Contains: 874 files, 199 folders

But doesnt it need to be 3.02 or something? So did I download a bad version? Or do I have it all for 7 64?

I have heard lots about there being problems when people have downloaded Win 7 from Digital River as part of the student offer. Most of what I have heard is from people trying to got from 32 bit Vista/XP to 64 bit Win 7.
Are there any similar problems reported with the 32 bit win 7 download?

legitimate copy of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit from them?

This is from an old thread:
Which version of Windows 7 is the DVD? If the DVD is damaged, which it sounds as if it is, then you can legitimately download a legitimate version of the same Windows 7 ISO - hint : do a search in Google using the terms "Digital River".

I bought a DVD for a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit upgrade, but my DVD has been stepped on and cracked. I have my product key. The person above made it sound like I can download the software from Digital River, even if I didn't originally buy it there, if I have a legitimate key. If not's not the case, is there another site that will let you dowload the exact same files that I can burn to DVD, in case I ever need to do a clean install?

Thanks in advance!

Hello Eatingscabs,

When you purchase Windows 7, you are actually just purchasing the product key number. You could use any 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate installation disc to install it on your computer, then use your product key number to activate it.

You can download an official 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate ISO file below. Afterwards, you can create a bootable USB/DVD with the ISO file to install with.

Apologies to folks who have already seen this:

Windows 7 student upgrade hell - Apple 2.0 - Fortune Brainstorm Tech

(link currently on front page of CNN)
As I posted several days ago, I am just shocked that MS didn't work with Digital River to get a solution out there ASAP...to avoid just this type of press. I really have been surprised that I didn't get an email a day or two after release day from DR or MS stating, "if you have issues, you can download the ISO from here." I mean seriously, what's the value of the ISO without a key?...and if you managed to get a cracked key, I doubt access to the install media is what is holding you back.

I am sure that this issue is DR's fault since they appear to have written the installer based on its signature...but the result is the same either way - bad press for MS and Win 7.

Anyway, just thought that I would share.

A few days ago I wanted to download Windows 7 Profesional 32 bit iso from Digital River. It started to download and then it stopped to download at 10.9 mb. I tried to download it with Free Download Manager, Internet Download Manager, DownThemAll but it also stopped at 99%. This problem is on all my browsers. I didn't have any Internet Connection problems while downloading the iso. I tried to download files that are larger than 2GB but its the same problem. I am on a DSL connection. I need this iso to install it on another computer. How to solve this problem ?

A:Why I can't download Windows 7 Profesional 32 bit from Digital River ?

Usually what happens after 99% is that the file is moved from a temp folder to the download folder, and then scanned by your antivirus program. Try and delete all browsing history, verify there's enough free space on the disk, and temporarily disable the antivirus.

Hello! While I know that this is the very first day of Windows 7 release and everything, I just wanted to see if anyone had a similar problem and had found a way to fix it.
So, I finally got Windows 7 Professional Upgrade (since I'm a student) to start downloading through my Campus' proxy and after downloading smoothly for a half an hour or so it hit 68% and paused. At first I thought nothing of it, but now when I try to click "resume" it downloads about .01-.02mb of data and then pauses again all in less than a second.
Anyone know how I might fix this? I've exited the Download Manager and started it again a couple of times, and restarted my computer and have unplugged/plugged back in my Ethernet cord.
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

My friends who have got their copies using the MSDN AA have had theirs as iso files which they have been able to burn and install from there.

It will not be in three seperate files. that was a torrented fiel. It will come in either an ISO (most likely) or a vhd (doubtful). to burn you take the ISO file and burn it to dvd using an app like IMGburn, or powerISO, etc

I purchased the student offer version of Windows 7 yesterday top up grade from XP, as for ?30 I thought I couldn't go wrong.

So there I was this morning thinking I could set a side a few hours to get it all up and running but 11 hours later i still dont even have all of the first .box file downloaded!

I live off campus (in the UK), but still have a cable broadband connection and can usually expect file download speeds of 300-800kb/s as reported by the windows download window.

Now I know that there is probably high demand on Digital River's servers at the moment, but still... My download has only managed 40-50kb/s on average with a couple of short peaks to 70-90kb/s.

At this rate it'll be tomorrow evening before I get to a point where I can install.

Anyone else having this problem, or ideas of how to speed things up? I ask as i can't find anywhere else which mentions this problem, only people talking about creating .iso files as if their download flew by and now they're installing.

Hi all,

What a nightmare!!!

I have just had an email from Digital River, that I will be getting a full refund for the Windows 7 upgrade within the next 30 days, for the problems caused. I haven't even emailed them to complain (yet!)

The email also states that if I ordered the backup cd's these would still be dispatched.

Happy days - sort of!

Ok, I know some have cracked it, and others haven't, but I thought I would share this one with you.

I am running a MacBook Pro, and had Windows XP running under bootcamp. Downloaded from Digital River and had all the problems. Finally got it to boot, but wouldn't install due to unable to create folder.

Scrubbed bootcamp partition and tried using Parallels. So far so good, but not for long. Won't take my product key as I have the upgrade product 32bit, but at least it got that far.)

Now, reloading windows XP on bootcamp, and my XP disc has a scratch on it and can't be read

There is no trial version of Win7, only a 30 day grace period before you must activate so you can decide if this is an install you want to keep. You should already own a license. If so then read carefully over the steps to get and keep a perfect Clean Reinstall Windows 7. It discusses in Step 1 how to find replacement media.

I've been following the above thread where a guy kept trying to download a Windows 7 iso from Digital River, and it was wrong size/'not an iso' etc. Even though I don't need any iso's myself, I thought I'd have a go at downloading one to see what the OP's problem was. Sure enough I had the same result - 2.49GB (not 3.09GB for x64). Twice in fact.

That was browser download, so I tried 2 separate download managers. Seemed fine at first, but both stopped at 99.9%. Curious . . .

I'm starting to wonder if Microsoft are playing the old 'poison torrent' game - record labels sometimes release bad torrents of music CDs into the wild and fans download them (illegally) but are disappointed when it's a fake. After a few more useless attempts to get the CD, the pirate gives up and buys the product (well that's the theory).

Pretty soon all computers on sale will be Windows 8, and a lot of folk will buy one but want to downgrade to W7. MS seem to be moving the goalposts on that scenario, but no probs - we can just get a W7 iso from Digital River. Or can we ???

Just like the 'poison torrents', after several failed W7 Digital River downloads I guess MS expect us all to give up and buy into W8 (and buy their video's + mp3's).

A:Something wrong at Digital River ?

You can remove your tin foil hat - sort of.

I used Pale Moon to download the ISO mentioned in the thread and it was fine
(e.g. I could mount it via Virtual CloneDrive and look around at the files...
...I could also build a virtual machine from it via VirtualBox.).

I also downloaded two other ISOs at the same time. One was fine, but X17-59465 was weird.
The last ISO in the screenshot above should be that same size as the first ISO.
X17-59465.iso looked fine.
I could mount it via Virtual CloneDrive.
I could even start the OS install process, but it barfed:



Notice the size being reported during the download.
That download was the 3rd try.
The completed download below it was 2nd try.

And these two download attempts were via another ISP:

Both of those downloads were via IE10. Both claimed that the download was interrupted. I looked at the file size of the ".partial" file before hitting the Resume button. The ".partial" file was the same exact file size (2.619...) shown in the first image of this post. Pressing Resume started the download all over again - but the "resumed" download made no claim of an interruption. Each second try just gave me the 2.619... file.

How odd.

In our household we have two students, and so ordered a copy of Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Home Premium in both x64 and x86 versions - a total of 4 products from Digital River.

Having used their download manager to download these files, I now have 6 files: 4 .exe files (as expected) plus 2 files named setup1.box and setup2.box.

The .exe files are, however, only just over 70KB each, setup1.box is almost 3GB and setup2.box is 163KB.

Running the Home PRemium versions fails immeditaely, saying it can't find the required files. Running the Pro x64 .exe file starts to build a .iso file ("Unloading the box"), but then fails with an unspecified error.

But if it's not allowing Product Keys from COA stickers then it is another ridiculous attack on the ability of MS customers to get the best possible install of the OS they bought with their PC even after over a million consumers have done so following Clean Reinstall Windows 7. I honestly thought we were beyond this, but apparently not.

A:Win7 Digital River Master Disc Won't Boot

You say you can't boot from the disk even after making correct BIOS boot order settings, but then describe the disk loading. How does the disk load if not booted?

Do you get the prompt to "hit any key to boot from CD/DVD drive?" If you do this, does it then begin loading with a progress bar and proceed as you say? That is booting from the DVD.

If it was not able to boot from the DVD then it would start into Windows 7 and probably bring up the Autoplay menu of the DVD in the drive. Is this what happens?

It is possible that the DVD only has the files and isn't bootable. If so, we can help you create a bootable ISO from the files to burn to a DVD.

Hi!So I recived my Thinkpad x1 yoga 3:rd gen on the 18th of july and have been trying to return this machine since the 22second of july and I have yet to get even a RMA. I have now sent about 6 emails to the support through lenovo and have recently even contacted Digital River support directly and still now response what so ever. The problem is that I have payed for this machine, and these are not cheap machines as you all know, and I find it extremly frustrating that even though i have done nothing wrong since i am still within the 14 days of getting the product, i still get no help in returning my machine and get my money back. I live in the EU and if I dont get my money back and get a RMA so that I can send this machine back to lenovo, then that means that lenovo or digital river are breaking the law. So my tip to everyone is that you througly document when you get your product and carefully document when you send your emails so that you can prove that you are eligable to a return/refund and that you dont get scammed. Very wierd behaviour from such a big and well known company, espacially on machines that cost over 2k dollars... For those that wonder the reason i want to return this machine is that it heats up so fast when plugged in and there is some coil whine on it aswell as the fact that it does not cut it for the tasks i had in mind. The last reason is obviously my fault since i did not do enough research but the heat and the performance due t... Read more

Hello,
I purchased the $30 Student download upgrade for Windows 7 Professional. I want to do a fresh install and therefore need to boot off a disc. Where do i download the iso so I can burn my disc of Windows 7 Professional? I currently have the full 32-bit version of Windows Vista Home Premium.

Thank you!

Quote:
1. From within XP 32-bit, I downloaded the 64-bit version of Win7 Professional upgrade.
2. Used the installer to extract the files, but received above mentioned error.
3. Checked the file size of the folder "extendedSetup" and noticed that it was 3.01 GB.
4. Moved extendedSetup folder to root (C:\)
5. Downloaded this file and placed it into C:\WINDOWS\System32: http://www.sevenforums.com/attachments/gen...d-l-oscdimg.zip
6. Bought up command prompt and typed the following: oscdimg -bC:\expandedSetup\boot\etfsboot.com -h -u2 -m -lWIN_EN_DVD C:\expandedSetup\ C:\7.iso
7. Burned ISO with ImgBurn (freeware)
8. Booted, installed, and activated

Hi,

I'm looking to do a clean install of Windows 7 64-bit. I'm running Vista 32-bit currently, with a 64-bit capable processor, so it should run fine, and have backed up the files I need.

I've downloaded a Windows 7 Professional .iso file from the MSDNAA site, along with a Serial Key, linked from my University, which I will obviously burn to a DVD.

My question is, am I able to do a clean install of 7 x64 from this DVD, or do I need additional tools, since on another student site offering Windows 7 at a student price (http://windows7.digitalriver.com/st...=Fk8-RgoHAkIAABeQBzAAAAAL&rests=1257170650822) it states that if you're going from Vista 32-bit to 7 64-bit you need to add a the physical disks to your order for an extra 9, on top of the 30 download.

So do I need additional discs on top of the .iso file I have, or am I all set to go?

Thanks for your help in advance.

A:HAving install problems with Student Download

Where did you download the Windows 7 Operating System?? from Microsoft or Digital River??

Microsoft does iso. file and Digital River (I believe, I could be wrong) just does a setup file.. or some other file format..

Were are you saving the Windows 7 OS( On your desktop, in a folder,)??

Because it sounds like it is JUST the folder you put Windows 7 in is a read-only folder..

I would just put the Windows 7 OS file on you desktop... and not into a folder..
Try that..

Hope this Helps...

Ok hope someone can help me.

I downloaded the pre-installation file and got to the point where it was "opening the box" when it gets to the end an error comes up and says "We are unable to create or save news files in the folder in which the application was downloaded. Please check the folder propeties to make sure that you have security permission on the folder to write files and that the folder is not read-only"

Now I went straight into the properties of the "extended setup" folder and unclicked the read-only box... now I pressed ok, and restarted the "open the box" exe. At the end the same error came up... I looked into the properties again and where it says read only, it's not a tick it's a green blob and however many times I unselect it, apply it, ok it for all folders etc, it keeps reselecting itself with this green blob instead of a tick.

I can't seem to find a way round it, and thus I cannot yet install windows7.

Bit more info, the installation is going on a new clean drive, I'm trying to achieve a dual boot from win xp home. My main drive at the moment is D:/ (long story) and I'm hoping after installing 7 with a clean install, I can then transfer my pictures and music etc from D:/ to the new recently formatted C:/

At the moment, I'm waiting for the disc that came with the student offer to see if it that will help solve the installation. Problem.

Any advice welcome. Please help! lol

I purchased W7 Pro 64-bit version from Digital River (Student Edition for $39.99) - I got the confirmation with the download information and I downloaded one single file called "DLMWin7Pro64CAen.exe" which is just 347KB! I understand it is an Installer file. How do I download the rest of the files ? Everyone else seem to have downloaded 3 files!

Has anybody else received just a single file like me? How did you get the entire OS so that I can burn a DVD and keep it?

Your help is much appreciated.

Hullo,

I followed the tutorial about creating an ISO image file from the installation files of the downloadable version of Win7 from The Ultimate Steal - Make bootable iso from student d/l. I used XP SP3 32bit

However the disc won't boot - I'm starting up the computer with the disc in and a blank hard drive, and it just tells me to select a bootable drive or insert bootable media and press any key - I press any key and the message repeats. It's clearly attempting to read from the DVD drive, but nothing happens.

I followed the instructions in the tutorial exactly - the only exception was that I used Nero to burn the image, not ISOburner or the Microsoft tool. This is becaouse ISOburner kept failing and kindly turned 4 of my DVD-Rs into shiny coasters, and the Microsoft download tool link is broken.

I don't think there's anything wrong with my DVD burner - it's quite new and I've had no problem with other things I've burned.

Is there a way around this, or should I just wait for the "disk kit" to arrive? (I'm assuming that is bootable?)

It's the 32bit version of Windows 7 by the way.

So for the third time, I downloaded the three files from Digital River. And every time I click on the executable (even when I click on "run as administrator"), I get the same thing:

http://i35.tinypic.com/4zt2xj.jpg

I've tried multiple computers and even tried making a .ISO that other people tried. But the problem is, not only does the expandedSetup folder not appear for me, I can't ever permanently uncheck the "read-only" box on the setup.box files. If they're filled in, and I uncheck them, they'll be filled in again when I do the right click+properties routine.

I ordered the backup DVD as well. Should I just hope that at least works for me? Or will Digital River put up new downloads?

I got fed up of waiting for my disc to come, and the customer service from Microsoft has been far from satisfactory which mostly just consists of copy and pasting the same thing over and over through email. So today I clicked the link provided from my email to download the Windows Seven exe file. Everytime I go to download it I keep getting a 346 KB file. I thought it was supposed to be 2 gigs, anyone else had this problem?

I believe that's the download manager, you run that and then you get the iso file from which you can burn your upgrade DVD.

To start, I've been browsing this forum for a good while now, and it's been extremely informative. However, on the eve of the big event, I have a few concerns.

I am currently running Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit. I purchased Windows 7 Professional 64 bit through the student discount program. I've backed up all the files I want to keep and was planning to do a clean installation tomorrow. However, what seemed like a clear-cut plan has been confused by what I've been reading in some other topics on this forum. I know upgrading from 32 bit to 64 bit or from Home Premium to Professional requires a clean installation, but now I'm not so sure how to go about that. With the product I purchased (I only paid for the download, not the backup disc), how exactly would I complete the upgrade?

My ultimate goal is to completely wipe the hard drive and start anew with a fresh installation of 64 bit Windows 7 Professional. I don't want to set up any partitions at this time. I have the original Vista installation disc, a few blank DVDs (4.5 GB and dual layer), and an 80 GB iPod for backing up files. Can I simply burn the 7 iso to a DVD and to a clean install directly from that, as I originally thought? If so, are there any downsides to installing over Vista? Or will I have to reformat the hard drive with the Vista disc, reinstall 64-bit Vista, then upgrade to 7 on top of that?

A:Installation questions - student discount download

Welcome to SevenForums stryker,
You can do the download to your vista. Then burn the iso file to a dvd 4.5 gb is fine. Then do a upgrade install follow the tutorial.you will be able to select a custom install once you get started with the upgrade. Ipod for backing up is fine. you can access the tutorials on this to follow along to make sure you do it right. The link I will give you will tell you what you need to know. Remember you can do a clean custom install with a upgrade disk. Look for upgrade install and go with the xp instructions. Also a tut for burning your iso. Good luck to you

OK, I've downloaded the Student version of Windows 7 Professional 64bit.
There appears to be two methods of creating installation media so that I can format my wife's PC and install a fresh/clean copy of Windows 7.

The first method involves using the program ImgBurn.
I have tried this 3 times and created 3 DVD's.
These DVD's boot fine in a 2 year old PC, however in two brand new machines I get the error message:

CDBOOT: Cannot boot from CD - Code 5

This is not a BIOS issue or boot order issue - all machines have very up to date BIOS and are set to boot from SATA DVD-ROM first.

So I attempted to use the second method as detailed here, using the oscdimg.exe method.
I copied the "ExpandedSetup" folder to the root of C and followed the instructions here - resulted in an ISO.
I used isoburner to create the DVD.

Great news - I can get this new DVD to boot in all of the machines.
Went through the Windows 7 installation on a totally wiped HD.
OS installed, prompted for product key.
Enter the Student Key and I'm told "Invalid Key".
I've deleted and entered the key 3 times - I know it's correct.
I also know it wors as yesterday I had tried the:

Install Retail 7 - do not enter any key
Run Retail 7 from within Windows and choose upgrade
After upgrade is complete enter student key

This method worked, so I know the key is sound.

All I want to be able to do is take a wiped PC, use a DVD to install Windows 7 and then enter/activate with the student key wit... Read more

OK, I'm making this thread to give people an idea of some issues that have arisen in the downloadable upgrade provided by DigitalRiver.

Many people on 32-bit systems are having issues while running the extracting utility that decompresses the .box files that are extracted in the download for the 64-bit versions of Windows 7 . It gives an error message about not being able to create folders or files.

For the Home Premium version, I attempted an install even though I got this error message and it went flawlessly. The total size of the folder was 3.01Gb (~3,098mb)

I just wanted to let people know that, even though you get this error, there is a chance that the install will work. Just wanted to pass that info on .

I have the same problem with Digital River order. I have a different workaround though. Instead of creating a bootable ISO you can create a bootable flash drive then dump all the files from "expanded Setup" folder onto the flash drive and install the system from it. I did that and I was able to boot the installation of the OS. Assuming there are no corrupted files in the "expandedSetup" folder I should be able to install the OS without a problem.

Here is how you can create a bootable USB key from Windows Vista (I don't know if this works under XP):
1. Make sure you are running the system as Administrator
2. Open up the run command prompt and type in: diskpart and Press Enter
3. Type: list disk and Press Enter
4. Type: select disk # , where USB key's disk number is #. You should be able to recognize the USB key by the size after typing in list disk. Press E... Read more
