    Why did my post disappear?

    I posted earlier today in "New ways to get free Windows-installation media " and it has since gone away, What happened?

    I received a notification of that post, but when I went back I couldn't find it. With regard to the post, I went to the suggested site, tried to down load the one I wanted, but was unsuccessful.

    I also got notification and saw the post and was able to download the one for Win 7 HP.

    What puzzled me was that it said it was okay for both 32 and 64 bit whereas they normally have to be two separate disks, unless it's your product key that separates, or it recognizes your system as either 32 or 64 bit and that's the version you get.

    It also said 16GB of free space was required, yet it was showing as just ~3.99GB in my Downloads folder.

    Previously Win 7 SP1 ISOs were 3.09GB.

    The Win 7 USB/DVD burner created a bootable disk so it must have been a valid ISO but I'm not sure if I will be able to use it for repair purposes such as an offboot sfc /scannow.

    Yes, I saved the URL as well so thanks to Urge for that, although I can see in the recent MS pulls why that the post was deleted.

    I'm not sure as to the practical use of this ISO.

    Booted up with it to see if I was able to perform an offboot sfc /scannow with it but after selecting Repair your Computer at the splash screen, I got an error that it didn't match my install - or words to that effect and was unable to continue to the Recovery Environment to select the Command Prompt until I selected the restore option.
