The .ISO seems to be only one available at the moment:

Three step process to burn a good installation DVD

1) Windows 8 Release Preview ISO images – Download and create your bootable DVD from here:

64-bit (x64) Download (3.3 GB) Sha 1 hash — 0xD76AD96773615E8C504F63564AF749469CFCCD57

32-bit (x86) Download (2.5 GB) Sha 1 hash — 0x8BED436F0959E7120A44BF7C29FF0AA962BDEFC9

Product Key: TK8TP-9JN6P-7X7WW-RFFTV-B7QPF


2) Verify the ISO file is not corrupted: Download and install SlavaSoft's HashCalc

For Windows .ISO file just place check marks in the SHA1 and CRC32 boxes.

In the main HashCalc Window the 'Data format' box located in the upper left should be set to "File"

In the 'Data' field click on the ... box located in the upper right and then click 'Cancel' if you get an 'Insert Disk' window pop up.

After you click 'cancel' you should see a 'Find' window. Use this to navigate to the folder where your .ISO file is stored and click on the file.

You should now see the .ISO file you clicked on listed in the 'File name' box located near the bottom of the 'Find' window.

Now click the 'Open' button. The Data field should now show the directory/folder path and the name of the .ISO file you selected.

With only the SHA1 and CRC32 boxes checked (Do not place check marks in any other boxes as this can slow down the time it take to calculate the values) click the 'Calculate' button located at the bottom of the main HashCalc window.

It will take anywhere from 30 to 60 seconds for the calculation to complete and the SHA1 and CRC32 data values to be displayed.

The reported values are not case sensitive, so a lower case 'a' is the same as an upper case 'A' as far as the results are concerned and should match what I have posted.


3) ImgBurn - In addtion to supporting the creation of Cds/DVDs from .ISO files,
it supports a wide range of other image file formats, and it's free.
