Lost your Windows Install Disc?

No Worries – we’ve got you covered so long as you still have your CD-Key! I spent a good deal of time scouring sites, forums, blogs for the best options available. Below I’ve compiled all of the most recent major releases of Windows and their respective Download Links for the .ISO file. As an added bonus – I’ve also included a quick guide on how to burn the .ISO file to DVD.

Windows 7

Windows Vista



 

Windows Vista x86 ( English )

X14-63452.exe
Boot.wim
Install.wim
 

Windows Vista x64 ( English )

X14-63453.exe
Boot.wim
Install.wim
 

These Vista Install files are a little bit trickier to work with – You have to First Download all 3 files into the same directory and then Run the .EXE. This will create a Folder called “Vista” in that directory.

Creation of a .iso file from “Vista” Folder

First download & Install  Imgburn. Launch imgburn and select “Create Image file from files/folders”

Select the browse folder button and select your “Vista” folder. Next select Advanced.

To the left will be your Vista folder, to the right make sure, you have checked Make Image Bootable, changed the Developer ID: Microsoft Corporation, load segment: 07C0 and Sectors to load: 4.

Select  the “browse for a file” button and then navigate to your Vista folder and then select the boot folder and finally select the file called etfsboot.

Select the build button.

Save your .iso

Select yes when the prompt for the Volume Label comes up and then select ok. Finally wait for it to make the .iso file.

 

Windows XP


While there are no sanctioned download locations for XP .ISO files, there are other more… frowned upon options. The below link details the process fairly well.

Burning The .ISO File to CD

 

Open up ImgBurn once Again. Select “Write Image file to disc”

Under Source select “Browse for file” and make sure that “write speed” is set to a Low value.

Select Burn Disk and you are Done!
