'The first service pack for Windows 7. ' If you're running Windows 7, but don't have a Service Pack, you're not only putting yourself at risk but missing out on some great features. This Windows 7 SP1 is completely free to download and install, and will keep your computer completely up to date with the latest. Luckily, Lifehacker has got hold of complete listing of Windows 7 ISO direct download links.You don’t have to try one of those shady Torrent sites now. Note that the Windows 7 ISO image is of.

When you install Windows 7 on a new system, you traditionally have to go through a long process of downloading years of updates and constantly rebooting. Not anymore: Microsoft now offers a “Windows 7 SP1 Convenience Rollup” that essentially functions as Windows 7 Service Pack 2. With a single download, you can install the hundreds of updates at once. But there’s a catch.

This update package, which combines updates dating all the way back to February 2011, isn’t being made available in Windows Update. If you’re installing a Windows 7 system from scratch, you’ll need to go out of your way to download and install it. If you don’t, Windows Update will download and install the updates one by one–the slower, more tedious way.

Here’s how to download and install the Convenience Rollup so you don’t have to do it the hard way.

Step One: Install Service Pack 1, If You Don’t Have It Already

The Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Convenience Rollup requires you already have Service Pack 1 installed. If you’re installing Windows 7 from scratch, you can get this in one of two ways:

  • Install From an Disc or ISO That Contains Service Pack 1: Microsoft offers Windows 7 ISO images for download. These ISO images have Service Pack 1 integrated, so you’ll already have Service Pack 1 after installing from them.
  • Download and Install SP1 Separately: If you installed from an older Windows 7 disc without SP1 integrated, you’ll need to install Service Pack 1 afterwards. Launch Windows Update, check for updates, and install the “Service Pack for Microsoft Windows (KB976932)” update to install it. You can also download Service Pack 1 directly from Microsoft and install it without going through Windows Update.

If you’re not sure whether you have Windows 7 Service Pack 1 installed, open the Start menu, type “winver” into the search box, and press Enter. If it says “Service Pack 1” in the window, you have Service Pack 1. If it doesn’t, you need to install Service Pack 1.

Step Two: Find Out Whether You’re Using a 32-bit or 64-bit Version of Windows 7

If you’re not sure whether you’re using a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows 7, you’ll need to quickly find out.

Click the “Start” button, right-click “Computer” in the Start menu, and select “Properties.” You’ll see this information displayed to the right of “System type” under the System header.

Step Three: Download and Install the April 2015 “Servicing Stack” Update

You can’t simply install the Convenience Rollup after installing Service Pack 1. You have to first install the April 2015 Servicing Stack Update first. Don’t ask us why; ask Microsoft.

Head to the April 2015 Servicing Stack Update download page and scroll down to the download links. Click the appropriate link to download the update for either an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit version) of Windows 7.

Click the “Download” link on the next page to download the file, and then double-click the downloaded update file to install it.

Step Four: Download and Install the Windows 7 SP1 Convenience Rollup

Update: You can quickly download the Convenience Rollup using the below direct download links. Microsoft could change them at any time, so send us a note if these links appear dead. If the direct download links work, you can skip downloading the update from the Microsoft Update Catalog website. Just download the appropriate update and run it to install it.

  • Download the 64-bit version.
  • Download the 32-bit version.

If the direct download links don’t work or you just want to download the update in the official way, you’ll have to download the Windows 7 SP1 Convenience Rollup from Microsoft’s Update Catalog website.

Unfortunately, this website requires ActiveX, which means it only works in Internet Explorer–you can’t use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or even Microsoft Edge on a Windows 10 PC.

After opening the site in Internet Explorer, click the yellow information bar and select “Install This Add-on For All Users on This Computer.” You’ll have to agree to a User Account Control pop-up after installing the ActiveX control.

You’ll see several update packages available for download:

  • Update for Windows 7 (KB3125574): Download this if you’re using a 32-bit version of Windows 7.
  • Update for Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB3125574): Download this if you’re using a 64-bit version of Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3125574): Download this if you’re using a 64-bit version of Windows 7.

To download the correct update for your system, click the “Add” button to the right of it on the page.

If you want to download more than one update–for example, if you’ll be updating both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7 systems and want offline copies of the patch–you can click the “Add” button for more than one update to download them at once.

After you do, click the “View Basket” link at the top right corner of the page.

Click the “Download” button here to download the update–or updates–you’ve selected.

You’ll need to select a download location for the update. For example, you could select your Downloads folder or Desktop.

Click the “Browse” button, select a folder, and then click “Continue.”

The update will begin downloading, so wait until it does. Depending on the update you selected, the download is between 300MB and 500MB in total.

When it’s downloaded, you can open the folder you downloaded the update to and double-click it to run it and update your Windows 7 system.

You can also copy this update file to a USB drive or network location and run it on additional Windows 7 PCs, quickly updating them as long as they already have Service Pack 1 installed.

This update package only installs all the updates released after Service Pack 1 and before May 16, 2016. Future updates won’t be added to it. If you’re downloading this package after that date, you’ll need to install the Convenience Rollup, then launch Windows Update to install any updates released after this package.

Going forward, Microsoft will offer a single large update once a month with bug and stability fixes. It will also offer smaller updates for security problems, as usual. This should result in less updates to install after you’ve installed the large Convenience Rollup package.

There are many valid and legal reasons one might have to feel the need to download Windows 7. For instance, you might be needed to reinstall or recover Windows 7 but not find the original Windows 7 setup DVD, or your netbook doesn’t come with a DVD drive. In such cases, downloading Windows 7 should help you out, assuming you have bought a legal and valid key from Microsoft.

A few days back, we had told you about an option to get the Windows 7 DVD from retail stores or download Windows 7 ISO directly from its servers online. Customers can digitally download the Windows 7 installation files from the online store from which they purchased Windows 7 to clean install on blank PC or upgrade existing installed OS.

The previous Windows 7 download links were in “.box” format, which comprised of a starter executable, setup1.box and setup2.box which cannot be burned to DVD disc directly or mount to a virtual DVD-ROM drive. The process to create a bootable Windows 7 DVD ISO image was pretty complex and most of you found it tough to get started.

Luckily, Lifehacker has got hold of complete listing of Windows 7 ISO direct download links. You don’t have to try one of those shady Torrent sites now. Note that the Windows 7 ISO image is of SP1 build 7601.17514.101119-1850.
