    I downloaded from Pirate Bay MSDN images of Windows 7 Home Premium and Professional (32 and 64 bit) and I checked and it's OEM version. I checked SHA-1 of images on MSDN with mine and it's not same. Sizes is same (2.39 GB for 32-bit, 3.09 GB for 64-bit).

    My question is: Is my copies legal or illegal ?

    Why don't you prefer reliable source??

    Anyway, you can only find retail images in MSDN. So hashes shouldn't be matched. Post the hashes.

    According to this, they aren't not untouched. :(

    No problem, just 'repair' them using downloading missing blocks using ĀµTorrent. FYI, just download one x86 & one x64 ISO, they basically contain all SKUs (except Enterprise).

    And you compared the Hashes? Means that the download were OK without any error! If not, I would do that!
