Windows 7: Long download

Long download

I am on a wireless N DSL connection with usually relatively high download speeds when i've downloaded other things (granted not entire OSs) but it seems to be taking longer than i anticipated. each time i try it looks like its taking 6 or 7 hours. is this normal? if normal, i'll keep trying (the first time it said it was corrupt). if its not normal, does anyone have any suggestions/ideas? thx. im going with the 64-bit since im currently on vista 64 bit.

Hello Lombo,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Are you downloading a torrent or the RC from MS? Torrents can be slow due to not enough seeds. MS can be slow if a lot of people are downloading at the same time.

Hope this helps.

Yea. Only thing you can do is try at a different time of day or in a couple days and hope it is better. Also it can go along slow and suddenly jump right up as others finish the download.

Good luck.
