What file size is windows 7?

I finally got my MSDNAA account set up (thank god! ) and I was wondering just how large a file size windows 7 really is because when I view W7 on the site it says 2.1GB but when I download it using the download program it says 16000MB.

Just that 16GB sounds like torture.

You're talking about the ISO right?

My Win7 Enterprise ISO is 2.23GB

Definitely not 16GB, maybe an error with your download program

Sweet. Thanks for that!

Now I have to back up all my files. So hopefully I might get this working tonight.

If you can, I would recommend following this install guide - Install Windows 7 FAST without a DVD or USB device

It made my install a breeze!

I'll burn it to a DVD just as a hard copy since my pendrive will be fillled with other files.

Welcome to the club
But in case anyone else looks this up exact sizes are;

Ultimate and other editions
x64: 3,075.30 MB
x86: 2,385.99 MB

Enterprise
x64: 2,976.62 MB
x86: 2,289.20 MB

It would also be nice if they had an all-in-one DVD like they do for Vista so you didn't have to download every edition separately. Hopefully soon

Would Professional fall under Enterprise?

Edit- Sorry misunderstood what you were asking.

Enterprise edition shares it's features with Ultimate. Professional is missing a few things compared to ultimate/enterprise. thefabe link should show you them
