Windows 7: Windows 7 download fails to complete.

Windows 7 download fails to complete.

Hi, happy user of 7 Pro here, I've twice attempted to download an ISO of Win. 7 Pro from Microsoft as a backup in case I lose my restore partition in a drive failure, and both times the download ceases at 2.54 GB leaving me with a part file. Wondering what is going on here? Thanks for any clues.

There is likely a timeout on the server. Check your manufacturer's installed tools to see if there is a way to create disks or call them and order some. If you have a retail version you can order a disk from M$.
