    so can someone maybe post which versions of 7 are actually legit?? like some people posting gold etc..are these all the same download or are some zukona and others something else?? can maybe we keep them to a single post (maybe mods) this way there are not a billion posts with the same links over and over with just different names??

    im actually not sure which to download now myself..i downloaded the zukona ones were those really legit or?? thanks

    The zukona ones are ISO's that were compiled by Microsoft, and as such, are official releases. Previous releases by WZor and other groups were made in-house by repacking the files provided by the Chinese leaker. As far as I know all of the recent releases use that same file set, and contain identical file-sets. The only difference is that the zukona (official) release contains one additional file that need to be removed in order to install an edition of Windows 7 other than Ultimate.

    I was going by the word of others, but after checking myself, only one file has to be removed- ei.cfg from the sources directory.

    The first one from torrents.ru (ZUKO) is the best. Better than all the rest :D
