Updates going here, but pulling 2GB of my 6GB seems to have got me past the hang point. It's now sitting at "Expanding Windows Files (0%)" in the UI... I'm hoping it's actually doing something.

Have you tried other brands of media and a different burner?

Sorry if you've already been asked this, but i've been up since 3am and i'm too tired to read through the thread again..

I had this problem with 6801 for some reason, and that was with either a dvd or a usb stick.

I've not had it with any other build though.

Have you installed Hashtab to make sure that your iso isn't damaged at all?

And you really can't tell just by downloading it multiple times or believing that the download isn't corrupted because windows didn't tell you so.

Once again, i'm sorry if this has been covered, it's taken me 10 mins to write this post because i can hardly see my screen

I tried 'Scheduling disk check' from both cmd and tools but every time I restart my computer, or turn it off and then on, it will skip the chkdsk and start Windows normally. I am getting a lot of 'corrupted file' errors and it's suggesting I run a chkdsk, but like I said, I can't figure out a...
