Finding windows 7 ISO for a x230
I am finding myself in the need of installing windows on my x230. It is currently running linux, and there is no recovery partition. Where can I download a windows 7 Pro installation image?
Microsoft (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows7) tells me that my computer has windows preinstalled, so I need to ask the manufacturer (which I do not know how to do). Other links from microsoft (e.g. http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-24281.iso) seem not to work anymore.
Alternatively, would any other version of linux work with the Windows 7 license?
