Question about Digital River Win 7 download

I have heard lots about there being problems when people have downloaded Win 7 from Digital River as part of the student offer. Most of what I have heard is from people trying to got from 32 bit Vista/XP to 64 bit Win 7.
Are there any similar problems reported with the 32 bit win 7 download?

The biggest problem is how the download is delivered (an exe file), then expanding the file, then burning the files to a bootable ISO.... Personally, I wouldnt go through all those hoops if it were free... and apparently a lot of other people agree..

There was an error where you would get a black screen and only be able to see your cursor move. I found a solution to this error. Simply turn off and on your monitor to get your screen.
