    Where do I get the files below?

    You will get the following 3 files:
    Windows 7-HP-Retail-en-us-x64.exe
    setup1.box
    setup2.box





    thanks

    if you purchased windows 7 from microsoft's online store, or through the discount program for students. To make the usb stick installation of windows 7 you don't need those specific files. You can use files from any windows 7 installation dvd. That is just the format the upgrades and digital editions come as.

    If you search on notebook review you can find these files to download for 32 bit & 64 bit versions of the OS but you will still need a valid license and key.

    Thank, I got the free Lenovo Windows 7 Upgrade. Will the vista code that I used for the upgrade still be valid? If so do you know where I could get the .iso for vista business? My tablet came with XP tablet edition as well as a Vista code on the bottom that I used for the free upgrade. I got the Windows 7 on a USB flash drive and am going to install it in a few days.



    thanks
