Example:

Part- X17-59463
en_windows_7_ultimate_with_sp1_x86_dvd_u_677460.iso
SHA1: 65FCE0F445D9BF7E78E43F17E441E08C63722657
ISO/CRC: 35511F11


That means the file called X17-59465.iso is exactly the same as the file called en_windows_7_ultimate_with_sp1_x64_dvd_u_677332.iso

You only need to use one hashcheck method, SHA1 will be fine.

CRC-32: ceb8abb3
MD4: 457621d46e0ce96d6facf388c29a1e29
MD5: b5fcd1af7069dd23c518422303408dfa
SHA-1: b303196132a373f275ad2b4038289559b4f587ad
Never did a hash check before. Is this supposed to match the one you posted? Thanks for the help.

Not sure why you got that hash.

Can you open it with 7-zip?

That is no good.

No idea what your problem is with downloading. Strange.

It should look like this:

Maybe try downloading ultimate.

We can change it to any other edition very easily.

One other thing.. i used checksum because i can't find hashchecker anywhere. No tab for it in properties or "open with". Downloaded it twice. Even rebooted. Am i missing something?

You have to install hashcheck. Then it is found when you you rt click a file.
