Recently, I installed Windows onto a bootcamp partition on my MBP by using an .iso image file of Windows that I downloaded directly from one of Microsoft's official websites (maybe it was www.microsoftstore.com or windows.microsoft.com) and yes, I used a license key legally purchased from the Microsoft store.

I'm trying to find the link to download the .iso file directly again but I can't seem to find it after much searching. Does anyone know where to download the straight-up .iso image of Windows? (Legally of course!)

Please note: I'm not asking for the link to the .exe downloader that downloads the media for you. I already have access to that in the digital content section of my order history at microsoftstore.com. I'm asking for the link on Microsoft's site that provides the .iso directly. I can't remember how I found the link to it, but it might have been in a cnet article or something.

Gah. After searching for an hour, I finally found the link just minutes after I posted this question. Go figure. You can get the Windows 10 .iso here after answering a few questions: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO
