I don't have much to add, but I'll try to make it more clear. There are the links to download win 7 sp1 on the digital life site. My question is this: If I want to use one of the iso's (burned to a dvd or usb drive) to do a fresh install, is my coa oem key on my computer going to work with it? I talked on the phone with someone from microsoft that told me the iso's are retail and that my oem key will not work to activate them. I know that oem keys are different from retail, but I got turned on to the page for the iso downloads, in light of wanting to reinstall, but not having an install medium. The guy didn't seem to know english well enough to answer my other question for him. Which is: will an initial release key activate an sp1 install? So, the main question, are the downloadable iso files for windows 7 on this site, oem keyable? Or retail key only? (are they oem iso's, or retail iso's?) Thank you.
