Q: digital river no longer hosting isos.

Im looking for a 7 home premium x64 iso because the serial checker on msfts site is referring me to the manufacturer, who of course doesnt have the isos available for download.

Preferred Solution: digital river no longer hosting isos.

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.)

A: digital river no longer hosting isos.

Sadly it would be illegal and against for rules for somebody to post a link to a non-official source of the ISO in the thread

Step 2 ? Download the ISO Image of Windows 7
Please obtain these links by contacting Digital River customer support. The Windows 7 ISO file is large (>2GB). Please verify that you have sufficient hard disk space to download this file and install Windows 7. Approx. 20GB will be enough for both operations.
Download the Windows 7 ISO image and save the file to a location you can remember. The download may take a considerable amount of time on slower internet connections.

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?

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!

Thanks

A:Digital River refund

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

Ah well

Any help would be great.

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.

Any ideas?

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).

Anyhow, at least I haven't broken any EULA law - all the iso's I downloaded tonight weren't copies of W... Read more

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.

A:is there any alternative for digital river ?

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.

As Jann from Heidoc reports in Windows 7 Direct Download Links as of now only English and Spanish are still up, links being replaced by a new MS Recovery Center that provides ISO's for a retail Product Key.

I'd also had heard from SIW2 who couldn't get it to take his retail key due to a Language error. I also had the same error on two of my retail Keys. The address we were using is Microsoft Software Recovery

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.

I'm going to wait a day before bringing this up to the MVP forums to see if anything changes.

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.

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

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".

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?

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.

Looks like they are gone. sari and Toffee informed me about it yesterday, apparently, a lot of people (including MVPs) aren't happy with that decision, but there's nothing that can be done. I have the Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bits .iso on my computer, which is one of the most popular, and I can access all the others be entering the product keys I have and also use my e5.onthehub (DreamSpark) account, but I think that uploading them and distributing them would be illegal. This is kind of stupid too. What if the person needs a recovery DVD to access the Recovery PE, but lost his product key on the sticker. The only way would be to grab it from Windows itself, but it wouldn't be bootable. Hopefully they'll make these .iso available to the public again.

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!

Apologies to folks who have already seen this:

(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.

That disc couldn't fix the hal.dll problem either so I did the Custom Install. That put a new installation of Windows 7 Pro on the computer.

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.

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.

When I first purchased XP, there was a digital camera wizard that automatically popped up whenever I plugged in my digital camera. One day that stopped happening. How can I get it to start again?

I own a Kodak DX4530 digital camera. Its connected to my computer via the Kodak Printer Dock 4000. For some reason I recently attempted to transfer pictures from the camera to the computer but the computer no longer recognizes the camera as a connected storage device. Although when I hit the transfer button the computer makes a noise indicating it knows something is connected but the camera is not recognized in "my computer" as a removable drive as it has in the past. Therefore I cannot transfer pictures from the camera to the computer.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

A:Computer No Longer Detects Digital Camera

Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Reconnect the USB devices and see if they're recognized properly.

I recently got a SimpleTech 160GB external hard drive (model #96300-4001-001) to replace the Western Digital 80GB external (model #WD800B008-RNN) that I had managed to fill up. When I connected the Simpletech drive, I couldn't access the WD drive. I shut down and disconnected the SimpleTech drive and started up again, but the WD drive was no longer recognized. Everytime I connect the WD drive, windows (XP, recently updated) gives me a USB Device Not Recognized message and lists the drive as an unknown device on a 6 port USB hub (it's not connected to a hub). I thought this might be an issue with the drivers installed on my machine so I've hooked it up to others with the same results. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drive in the device manager and running WD's diagnostic software (as was recommended by their tech support) to no avail.

Is there anything I can do to get the drive to be recognized again?
 

A:western digital external hd no longer recognized

Good Afternoon professor stas, these kinds of devices on USB can really be difficult to troubleshoot.
Rather than get too involved and possibly damage something, the easiest path is to remove the drive from the case and then install it as fixed drive in a machine.
This avoids the go-between stuff that most likely will be causing your problem.

With windows it is not uncommon to sneeze and you will lose your USB stuff!

Another option may be to run a live Linux system, this is where a different reliable kind of operating system would load.
This path would need a bit of re-learning. (fifteen minutes or so!) LOL!

Others will have different ideas.

There are all kinds of options.
Cheers, qldit.

Hi everyone.

After installing my digital camera yesterday, I got the blue screen when I tried inserting my USB modem device.
The BSOD comes up saying:

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

For some reason, It can still take the camera when I insert it and any USB input device(i.e. Mouse, Keyboard) just no flash drives.

My Computer:
Dell Latitude D600
Windows XP SP3
512MB RAM

Camera Brand : Sumishi

What I have already tried:
Uninstalling the Camera drivers using the Add or Remove programs utility on my computer and then re-installing all my USB ports using Device Manager
Adjusting my paging file to "System Managed Size"

What I think I must try, but haven't yet:
Running CHDSK.

Any help would be much obliged.
 

A:Computer can no longer take USB Drives after installing digital camera

Have a look in Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager and scroll down the list to USB hubs. Check in each to see what's plugged in where and how much power is being used. 500mA is the maximum and you may have overstepped the mark so spreading devices around the hubs may be necessary. You could also buy a powered hub which takes electricity from your mains and not the computer.

Have you restarted the computer since this happened?

First, I have downloaded diagnostic tools from WD etc, tried recovery tools, and they aren't working.

Problem: My external is a WD My Book Premium Edition 250 GB bought in 2006. It has worked every day until today. I do not want to send it to a recovery place as I need files and pictures off of it immediately. I use this as a back up for work and personal. My PC is a Windows 7 home edition. I plugged in my external today and a message came up saying "unknown Device" for the USB hub. Then the lights on the front are blue and were circling around the light part when they are supposed to just stay on without movement. I usually can fix things myself, but I haven't been able to actually recover anything or get the computer to recognize it to use any recovery software. I have even used command prompt to try and recover/re-open it from there and re-installed drivers. I called and spoke to a support tech and he stated the files may be corrupt. However, the computer still is not even recognizing that it's plugged in. Any suggestions???

I feel this needs to be broght to the attention of our malware alert community.  Today I discovered that my windows deluxe hosting account with Godaddy was hacked on 11-17-14.  The hack was basically a  full access to my directories including all my sub folder directories that are alias to my other sites I host.  Every directory and subdirectory that contained HTM or HTML files was modified with a footer hyperlink Data.  What makes this even more interesting is that I am not alone.  Doing some of my own Legwork being a former Network Admin I realized by keyword google search that there are numerous perhaps hundreds if not more domain names that reside on Godaddy Servers that are also hacked with the exact same circumstance that I am in.  So I would assume that there is a common issue and quite possibly a breach on godaddy's side.  I have yet to see if there are common setups such as wordpress, joomla or other scripts that have the potential to be a way for an attack like this to happen.  However I removed all of my joomla based hosting due other unrelated issues and moved them to my linux hosting servers.  All I have left on my windows hosting is some old custom asp scripting and some custom PHP scripts that I wrote.  Its possible that these could be a path of compromise but I have a hunch that this hack was done from another direction.  He...

A:Possible Breach on Godaddy Hosting Serves (Windows Shared Hosting Accounts)

I did call tech support.  They are looking into this.  THey feel that this was most likly a FTP hack.  It certainlty possible.  But what concerns me is that if this was a FTP hack then wouldnt other hosting sites be affected?  So far all the sites with this inflated HTML hyperlink data are all coming up as Godaddy Hosting IPS's  Even more interesting is that they are all so far the IIS7 Servers (by using mydnstools).

Yo guys, so I'm wanting to create a AIO of Windows Vista. I've done one for 7 also but for Vista I haven't been successful. I'm using WinAIO Maker Professional and I got all my ISOs off GetIntoPc but when I actually impound all of them into the .wim and make a ISO, when booting, i only see the top 2 ISOs don't know why but i do.

So then I remember for Windows 7, I had a Ultimate Retail disc that actually contained every single Windows 7 Edition and you could even see the files in the sources folder like "Windows 7 ULTIMATE.cfg or WINDOWS 7 STARTER.cfg" and etc.

So I think for my case, I need a Windows Vista Ultimate x64 & x86 Retail/DVD ISO. So I need one that would contain all the editions like it should in a retail. I've read that you can edit the setup.cfg or something in the INF folder to unlock all editions and etc. Also am I right? That a Windows Vista Ultimate Retail would contain EVERY SINGLE EDITION RIGHT?

So sorry for a long post, but if someone could please provide me a clean Windows Vista Ultimate x64 & x86 Retail ISO or a Vista ISO that could contain all the editions both architectures. Thanks pals! Also I saw that someone else on this forum needed a Vista but he got sent here: Vista ISO download. I cannot find a Vista Link here, since Digital River is taken down. *Also I do not mind using torrents, as long as the Torrent ISO is nice and clean and malware free.

Cheers.

have just been trying to burn dts cds (it's in wav.cue format)

system refuses to burn both the images i try to burn
have had two different error messages:
"can't read file" and "cannot find image"

also now ashampoo just crashes with a windows "close program" message

any ideas/help? i'm pretty sure it's not software specific - as i've loaded 3 versions of ashampoo and also magic iso

could it be hardware? no it sounds silly but could there be drivers required for win7 to understand cue/bin files?

thanks

A:cues and isos again

Hello brenski and welcome to Seven Forums.

Have you had this problem before or has it just started? Are you using audio CDs? I'm not sure if Ashampoo or Windows 7 natively supports DTS burning. But you might see if this free tool works. It supposedly supports DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD bitstreaming.

the files are both below 700mb and should easily fit onto a dvd+rw. I want to create a bootable XP disk but also i would like to put office onto the same disk aswell is it possible? Sorry if it is a noobish question.

A:Can I Burn Two Isos Onto One Dvd?

Since you are creating a boot disk, I am reasonably certain that this would have to be separate from microsoft office. If you were just burning a Data CD/DVD and using the disc as a form of storage or backup then you would be fine. IMO, use separate disks if you plan on using one as a bootable XP disk so that there are not any complications if you wind up having to boot from the disk.

I've created several iso files out of my games so I can play them without having to insert the disk. Just recently, I believe I picked up a trojan horse that slipped through Onecare cause it was giving me an error saying my subscription was over. I managed to isolate the trojan after i reinstalled onecare and it works now. I just went to play my games, and realized that something had happened to my isos. They are all still there, but they say that they are 0 kb in size. It seems like the data disappeared, because they copy as fast as if they were 0 kb files. This isn't a huge problem, I can always remake the isos, but it will be kind of a pain. Is there any way I can repair/recover them?

Thanks in advance

A:Destroyed Isos

If the file says 0 KB, you can pretty much presume it's gone. You should probably run chkdsk when you have a minute though to check the consistency of your file system (click start, run, accessories, command prompt, then type chkdsk c: /f and it will run chkdsk on the next boot) You can see the results of chkdsk on the following boot in your event viewer (control panel, administrative tools) in the application log (look for winlogon events).
If chkdsk finds some orphaned files, it will save them in a folder named found.000 in your root folder (you may need to enable show hidden files in control panel, folder options, view tab, in order to view the found folder).

I'm not familiar with malware, but if in doubt, do a full scan using antivirus and antispyware just to be sure (and be sure to use the latest definitions for both before you do a scan).
This thread also has guidance for dealing with malware:

Hi folks!

I've just begun downloading the Hindi version of the Windows 7 Beta 1 and the downloader is downloading two ISOs for me.

1. 7000.0.081212-1400_client_en-us_Ultimate-GB1CULFRE_EN_DVD.iso (2.44 GB)

2. 7000.0.081212-1400_x86fre_client_LIP_hi-in-GB1CLIP_HI_DVD.iso (41.94 MB)

What does this mean? As in, should I burn 1 DVD and 1 CD or something?

Also, I would really like it If I can do a clean install rather than an upgrade. So, is it possible for me to do that?

Also, Although I have chosen to download and install the Hindi version [Yes, I am from India] Could I still opt for the English version as I see that the downloader is downloading the English version DVD as well?

Thanks folks! Looking forward to a great experience with Windows 7!
