    Hi, recently lost my computer hard drive only to find backup is corrupted.

    New to all of this installing OS etc. and I downloaded Pirate Bay and went to link from Repository and downloaded W7 Home Premium 64 English and got hit w/ a bunch of Malware and when I did checksum/hash check it don't match up to be legit.

    Would much appreciate an alternative to Pirate Bay and any tips to get back in the flow!

    Thanks

    EDIT... Thread I just started was closed
    dunno why but on links provided there (much thanks for replies and sorry in advance if I somehow did something wrong to get thread closed) there is many versions saying (media refresh) RTM etc. and I have no clue what that means.

    I am looking for Windows 7 Home Premium English that the checksum/hash matches up and greatly appreciate the help!

    Did you care to click on the link that Alphawaves posted?
    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...1-and-SP1-Media-Refresh-Direct-Download-Links
    There it is.
    There's a bunch of download links, including "Windows 7 SP1 Media Refresh (5/13/2011 new releases with KB2534111 included) Digital River Direct Links" - these are official from Microsoft.
    Click "English" next to Home Premium x64.
    ..Really?

    No need to be rude.... Yes, I did click that link (and thanked both of them) and have read Tutorial, Repository, YouTube vids on Daz Loader, and over an hour on here BEFORE creating a post yet didn't know which one was the correct one to download as noted above. Some say non-bootable, SP1 Media Refresh etc and still unsure which one is the correct one.

    SP1 media refresh is the one that would be best. This is genuine MS ISO from Digital River and as good as getting a boxed media from MS. Download, burn, and boot from DVD.

    Sorry, I've had a rough day.
    I used the Ultimate x64 DigitalRiver link and used Daz's loader after installing, it works fine.
