Lost your Windows 7 install disk but still have the activation key then Microsoft have launched a website which allows you to download the iso:
Microsoft has launched a website that allows users to download Windows 7 DVD .ISO files. The Microsoft Software Recovery website lets customers create Windows 7 installation DVD, create a backup Windows 7 DVD or a bootable USB drive.

If you are a Windows 7 user and wants to carry out any of these tasks, then you will need to ensure that you have a reliable Internet connection, as well as sufficient available disk space of around 3.5 GB on your Windows computer, USB Drive or any external storage drive.
Create Windows 7 installation media
To get started, you will have to visit Microsoft and verify your product key.

This site allows you to recover and install Microsoft Windows software purchased through a retailer only.


Enter your product key, select the language from the drop-down menu and click on the Next – Verify Product Key button.



Once you have done this, your key will be verified and you will be able to download an ISO file.


You can use the downloaded ISO disc image to create a bootable DVD or USB, using any ISO burning software like for instance, the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool.

If you are currently using a mobile device and are therefor not ready to download it, you will be sent an email link to download Windows 7 once you have verified your product key. This link will remain alive and valid for 24 hours, during which time, you can download the ISO file.

seems www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-recovery has now become www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/home … the good news is the concept has morphed into something even better. not only that … it now utilizes the https protocol.

what bassfisher is wanting may not be an unrealistic dream … almost seems microsoft has taken steps in that direction. pulling up kemical's website … the link offers win-7 reinstall … as well as vestibules for both win-8.1 and win-10.

check it out and see what you think.
