Microsoft officially launched Windows 7 to the market, but as per it’s old terms it does not allow users to download setup files directly from Microsoft Download Center. Since Microsoft is not allowing users to download Windows 7 directly from it’s servers, people have to depend on BitToreent sites. But the only problem with torrent files is that they might not be the original files or might even contain malicious or fake images inside the ISO image.
Microsoft has blocked any kind of Windows 7 setup file download for regular retailers but it’s providing the download link to MSDN and TechNet subscribers. Since MSDN and TechNet subscribers were the first persons whom Microsoft allowed to test Windows 7 during it’s trial period, few people leaked the direct download links and as the result now anyone can use those links to download their copies of Windows 7. But this Windows 7 version is for 32-Bit (x86) computers and won’t work with 64-Bit systems.
Interestingly, Microsoft was also using the same direct download link to allow people to download Windows 7 32-Bit (x86) after purchasing it online. The file is being hosted on digitalrivercontent.net server which is one of the distribution partners of Microsoft and allows people to download files from it’s server as a way of ESD (Electronic Software Distribution).
Download will occur in three parts where you need to extract all parts to a folder called ExpandedSetup and then start the installer to start installing Windows 7 on your system. Use Download Manager to resume download as the server refuses connection when download limit reaches 2GB.
