I need to get a copy of a Windows 7 Starter ISO but can't for the life of me find one...


Download page from MS directs you to enter your product key first which I do, but it gives me an error (I believe this is because it won't accept OEM keys?)


I have a netbook with a new HDD so don't have a restore option.


Anyone know where I can source a legitimate copy? Have my own OEM key/factory SLIC/SLP


Mucked around for hours configuring ei.cfg on a Home Premium edition but won't give Starter as an option during install or during install it will error stating "key not valid for this edition etc"

Is your key for Win 7 Starter or Start with SP1? I believe they're not interchangeable


I can provide an iso.

I see, maybe that was the issue I was having. I had SP1 ISO's that I was trying to configure.


COA Label just states Windows 7 Starter SNPC OA


If you could link me your ISO that would be massively appreciated
