Hi Faruq,

 

2 things....

 

download a sha1 hash checker, prefferably one with a gui like Hash Calc from http://www.slavasoft.com/?source=HashCalc.exe, its easier to read and compare and does many other Hash checks as well.

Before you delete the ISO you downloaded, check the Hash on the above check and see if it corresponds to the Hash you downloaded, more than likely not.

 

Download it again and you will see it matches, it was perhaps just a cache thing that went wrong but the issue does seem to be sorted out.

 

opening with 7zip wont be an issue, but, from MS download part of the preview you will notice they have a link to IMGburn use it to burn to disk its actually really good.

 

Cheers

Ben
