Windows 7: W7 downloads corrupt

W7 downloads corrupt

Has anyone else had a problem with the RC downloads from Microsoft's official d-load page being corrupted?

I have tried a few times, it gets all the way through the download and right at the end says it's corrupted and unuseable and such.

Or is there a better, official download other than build 7100?

Thanks for help, and apologies if this has been gone over already :)

If you insist on getting the official RC, you should try a Microsoft http direct link for the RC ISO instead of their own downloader, I also had problems with their Java download thingy.

I would think that with millions of successful downloads, the problem is definately on your end. As far as I know that is the only place that you can legally download the RC.
You might consider going to a friends house and re-download the image file..

I could roll with my end being the issue, but I had successful d-loads in the past, with the same setup.
