im pretty sure its just a bootloader change as even the slightest change can change the hash...

Im making a sfv of the technet x86 which you should be able to check for any changes...

edit: its all done...
use quicksfv to verify (which is what i used to make the crc hashes..

i should mention that you have to copy the whole iso to a folder (and inserting the sfv file in the root folder so that it can verify all the hashed files...

The unzipped .sfv file appears to not have hashes,

just 'file-sizes', in the left column:

you have to look halfway bottom (maybe a bit more) until you dont see the ";" character anymore
Code:

This is where size recording ends and crc's begin

Got it !

Interesting that the numbers are different -- MS must use a different polynomial:
(Or, may not even be CRC-32)

Cyclic redundancy check - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 'Help' ain't too definitive, either.
This is as far as I could go:

Quote:
Save File List allows the list of files which are (the same, different, only in left or only in right) to be saved.
In addition, a checksum for each file can be saved.
Copy Files… leads to a dialog allowing you to write the files to a disk.
This can be useful if you are trying to synchronise two directories.
Doesn't make much difference, tho, since all files are 'identical'.
The discrepancy has to be in the binary boot-code...

What does he consider "early" ?

We didn't talk specifics as each city is going to have different levels of interest in attending. I am in St. Louis--not a hotbed of technology. I would think showing up an hour in advance would probably be sufficient.

If anybody wants to give me their 32bit key, I will check to see if it will work on the 64bit OS.
