yes, digital river is the official microsoft download site. You may have to telephone for activation when using the product key from sticker on laptop, but that is no problem.

More details and links to direct downloads (scroll down page to English USA iso) get the 'U sp1 media refresh' version as that has got W7 with sp1 on it. click here
