Wow.
what do you mean ? I didn't just download random RTM's I did download ISO's from Microsoft as well neither worked. give me a little credit buddy!
No "discredit" intended... but you should know there are a whole mess of messed up ISOs out there... particularly those found on torrent sites. I was just a little surprised that you would trust them... I sure wouldn't.
All joking aside I don't doubt that their are plenty of hacked up frankenbuilds floating around. The ones I downloaded were from trusted sources not your typical upload by some random dude. I first attempted to download via Microsoft sources but after those failed a alternate source was called for.I thought that some file corruption occurred during the download process even with a MD5 check it can happen.

That's always a possibility, although it's pretty rare nowadays...

Let me just step aside here and you can carry on with the others...
