How to download Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 ISOs

In the past Microsoft only offered Windows 10 ISO downloads on their website, removing access to download older versions of Windows. However, according to a new report Microsoft now has ISO downloads available for Windows 7 and 8.1, alongside Windows 10.

Paul Thurrott reports that previously Microsoft allowed downloading Windows 7 and Windows 8 ISOs through Digital River. But later restricted downloads to Windows 10 only. Fortunately, it looks like they have had a change of mind, by making ISO files for Microsoft’s other supported Windows versions from the Microsoft Software Download site. Check out the links below:
You will require a valid 25-digit product key before you can download the Windows 7 ISO. Once you download the ISO file, you can copy one to USB or DVD disc to install Windows or mount the ISO (on Windows 8 or newer) and use it as a virtual disk.
