Windows 7 Ultimate ISO

Don Burn’s website for Windows driver consulting is available at A question was asked about building Boost in Windows from the modular boost git repository. The recipe used last year was different from the one used almost a year later. To build Boost, the following steps were taken:
1. Install MinGW (32-bits) and Msys (bash etc) using mingw-get-setup
2. Install the Windows Driver Kit (for W7 the wdk 7 — GRMWDK_EN_7600_1.ISO was used) which includes MASM 8 (required for boost > 1.51 according to this post)
– The ISO image was downloaded and files were extracted using WinRAR
– The DSF should be skipped as advised by the installer
3. Add the directories of ML64.exe and ML.exe to the path (both required)


I currently have Vista Premium installed on my computer, but I want to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate. The upgrade process involves working with an ISO file, which I haven’t done in years. However, I am having trouble finding a reliable ISO online that can ensure a smooth transition. I came across a forum post that suggested using wnzip20.0 or higher to open the file without any issues. Despite this information, I am still hesitant to proceed with the download of GRMWDK_EN_7600_1.ISO without confirmation that it won’t cause any problems.

Thanks for any advice



The ISO file named GRMWDK_EN_7600_1 is specifically designed for the WDK. If you intend to upgrade your operating system using an ISO file, you will require an MSDN license.
