there is someone who uploaded the iso file of the original windows 7 ultimate cd?
its the rtm version..
they're exactly the same. rtm=release to manufacturing, the only different with retail is that it's that iso... burned onto a dvd and put in a box.
Actually no mate, the only difference is that the RTM version is installed on as many machines as the manufacturer, which RTM copies are provided for, wants to install on using their key, cert etc. (A Loader can emulate this)
Retail just means they are the shipped copies and appear on our shelves.
Usually the key for a retail copy only works on a few copies of windows to activate, then the key won't work anymore and you will have to get another.
However both the RTM and Retail are identical and both come as iso, that are burnt to disc
