  1. hey, My lappy already has pre-installed windows 10 home. but the problem is it’s hang too much, please guide me, should I downgrade my lappy with win 7? i tried all the methods to boost my lappy performance with win 10 but… it’s not suitable for my laptop

    • Hi,

      Thanks for visiting TechLatest.
      This is a very common issue with Windows 10 which is installed on a conventional HDD.

      We would suggest you get an SSD (at least 120 GB) and then reinstall Windows 10, you will not face such issues. (Download Windows 10 from here).

      Cheers,

      • ¿debería degradar mi lappy con win 7?

        Quiza esa persona no la queria degradar, yo creo que lo que queria era venderla y el ssd utilizarlo en un equipo que compraria a una persona que lo tiene sin usar, de echo lo compro nuevo y al año fallo y ya no uso ese i5 de 8va, es un gran equipo, con una licencia legitima a nombre de la persona con soporte y garantia activa, eso es muy bueno en estos tiempos por eso de la privacidad🔏…
        Lo bueno que yo nunca he estado en esos casos Gracias a dios.

        Volviendo al tema creo que esta persona no estaba tan despistada como usted lo comenta y utilizaria su ssd en otro dispositivo.

      Regarding your question, yes, it does ask for an installation key.

      Cheers,

  2. Hi TechLatest.

    Thanks for the iso.

    I have a question, and this question is basically the same as the person above this comment. My question is.

    Do these Windows 7 OSes ask for keys prior install? or is there any skip option?

      No, this is an original Windows 7 ISO file, you will have to arrange a valid product key to activate it.

        Thanks for visiting TechLatest.

        Unfortunately, you can upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit in this way, first, check whether your CPU supports 64-bit OS or not (Goto My Computer properties), and if it does, then you will have to clean install Windows 7 64-bit to upgrade from 32 to 64-bit.

        Cheers,

          • Hi,

            The article already has the guide to clean install Windows 7, check out that, nevertheless if you still face any issue, you can always comment here.

    I’m looking for Brazilian Portuguese (PT-BR) Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits ISO file with SP1. I tried to get it using Windows-ISO-Downloader tool but it’s not available there anymore.

  6. Hello im looking to format my windows 7 with this and it doesn’t seem to be working. First attempt I used the .zip file as the .iso in rufus. tried to boot from it and it said no drivers found. then i tried to extract the files but the rufus program doesnt recognize many of the files to use and im not sure which to try. Please help! thanks!

    • Hi,

      Thanks for visiting TechLatest.

      First, where did you get the zip file, as we provided iso file(s) only.

      Second, the ‘No drive found’ error is due the mismatch in the hard disk format (GPT or non-GPT) and bootable media. Check whether your hard disk is formatted as GPT or not, if yes then create bootable media as GPT in the partition scheme otherwise select MBR.

      Cheers,

    • first you have to convert iso to bootable pendrive , i must recommend to use rufus for this step, just plug your pd in your old system and open rufus and select iso file location and press start it wil start to make bootable , after complete this process just plugged out pendrive and , which system you wanna format plug in there and restart and press esc or according to your pc go to boot options select your pendrive and press enter it will appears windows is loading and logo off windows 7

  7. hello sir i have a doubt that i get into pc website have windows 7 64-bit in 3.3 gb and tech-latest.com is giving windows 7 64-bit in 5.47 gb why??
    please by this comment don’t get angry i asking this question beacause i am worry from after installing windows 7 my data will lose
    second question is that can i choose that in clean install can i keep my files
    third question did all driver had come with this

  8. I was skeptical about this link at first since if you hover over the link it shows a bit.ly address instead of a Microsoft address. I found out you can check bit.ly addresses by taking out the https:// before hand and just entering the bit.ly address with a + following it. Once I checked them out this way it did show it was legit from Microsoft’s website even though their links cant be found on their website from what I can tell. Try it for yourself and you can see for yourself. I hope this helps people who are as paranoid as I am when downloading things like this!

  9. Hi, Thanks for the image file.
    Downloaded it and used rufus to create the bootable flash drive.
    Even disabling the secure boot was smooth in my HP Lappy.
    But theres one impediment, the screen gets stuck on the windows logo “starting windows” and doesnt load the language selection page.
    Help would be much appriciated.
    Thanks Again
