Downloads on that site are links to genuine Microsoft ISO files on Microsoft's official digital distribution partner Digital River's servers. In other words, those ISO files are the real ones, risk free and valid.

For your information: those download links are to Digital River, an official Microsoft online distributor. If you buy a downloaded version of Windows from Microsoft Store, it's these same Digital River downloads you will get.

A Windows ISO could not be more official. In your case the issue is not the validity of the download source, you need to to search the issue somewhere else. If you burned a DVD, it might be you burned it too fast or your burning software has issues, or any other burning or download related error.

I repeat: those links are official Windows ISO download links on the official Microsoft digital distribution partner's site, the exactly same ISO files you would need to download if you bought Windows from Microsoft Store.

Something must have happened during the download. I'd try again another day.

How about trying to burn it to DVD with ImgBurn. Or don't you have an optical drive on this system.
