Windows 7: The "Official" RC download for Technet/MSDN

Windows® 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
 
 

Sizes mean nothing as it could be added info in the iso, compression, etc.
The hash checksums will be the do or die on the matching of these.
They will either be the same, or they won't.

wguimb, I don't doubt you, but you're only making it worse by posting this over and over. Re-read the text of your post. The hashes say they are from the LEAKED version of RC 7100. They do not say they are from the officially released version of RC 7100. Like I said, I'm not doubting you; but just because you say so, I'm not going to stop my Technet download and not verify them on my own.

Take my word or not, but that's the truth.

I think there is a problem of communication with the conversion from bytes to MB to Gb.
The leaked x86 version is
bytes 2,530,975,744
MB 2413
Gb, 2.35

I hope I am not adding more confusion.

Hash checksums...this is the only true way of knowing if they are the same or not.
So this is what I'm waiting on & if I have to, I'll download from the MS site on May 5th to find out for myself.

Either way it's no big deal as it's only time & this is something I have plenty of now that I'm not working.

I wouldn't doubt if MS at the last second before the RC releases changed something in there just enough to change the hashes just to F*** with people like us that got it early! LOL
It would be funny on their end & wouldn't take any work at all to do.

Once the download from MSFT is complete, we can compare. I am pretty confident they will be the same.

I can confirm the TechNet and MSDN downloaded RC files match exactly the original leaked 7100 ISO images. See the information above.
