THE DOWNLOAD IS ALLWAYS CORRUPT

Answers

  • Hi Ernest

    We are getting many reports about this specific problem.

    I would suggest waiting a couple of days and then trying the download again.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank You for testing Windows 7

  • I had five corrupted downloads before I realised the special Microsoft downloader had a conflict with the java downloader which Firefox insisted on using.

    My solution was to roll back the Java updates ( they will send 'em again) then get out of Firefox into IE 7 ( Not the IE8 beta). I figured anything IE 7 was doing had been allowed for. I also inhibited DAP.

    I then got a clean download in less than 50 minutes. Immediately burnt to a disk. I hope this helps someone

    I had to back out of the install a couple of times to dump Zone Alarm and  a camera manager but, the install 2.5 hours? went well.

    Not so well since though. Win 7 is up and running but I have had endless trouble getting email to work. Tried thunderbird first but it only brought in half of my vast email folders.

    Win 7 UAC even at the lowest level, will not let me in to get the rest from my old app data files. I even tried from XP ( dual boot) across the partition. using Outlook.  I used to be able to do that but not with this new UAC. It is still a pain.

    If anyone has an answer for that I would welcome it.

  • Hi :)

    It could be that the ISO file could be corrupt. Try to re-download the Windows 7 RC ISO file on your PC and use a different ISO file burning software, such as ISOBuster or Active ISO Buster. =)

    I hope this helped. :)

  • The problem seems to the downloader that microsoft use, as I tried download 4 times on 2 different systems using different IPs etc.
    I then managed to find a direct download link and it worked fine. 

    I don't know why microsoft and other companies don't use torrents and at least that spreads loads.  I often download numerous Linux iso through torrents etc and don't have these sorts of problems.  15 Gig of dowload quota for a 3 gig file really blows out the accounts on some ISP plans. (And the excess of 24 hours required - very little high speed internet in Australia.)

  • Hello,

    If it appears that there are a lot of reports about this specific problem then perhaps someone at MS might be able to troubleshoot it? I have only once been able to download a beta version of Windows 7. Ever since then I have been unable to get a complete ISO to DL through the download manager. I have uninstalled the active X control. Cleaned out all browsing files in IE. I have searched for workarounds and like issues on the forums. I don't use any other browsers in XP. It has always gotten to 99 % of DLing and then it comes back to tell me the file is corrupt.

    It really frosts my cookies that I haven't been able to test this system when I cannot even get the beta  to DL properly. Waiting a few days to get this to clear up is not the answer since I haven't been able to DL it in months for the same reason. And it appears I must be the only one who is having this issue since the Windows 7 team hasn't addressed this in its resources area. Any other suggestions would be appreciated though.

    Thanks

  • I've tried to download Windows 7 twice now from the manager and after 99% I get the same file corrupt message. Has anyone found what the cause is?

  • guys just go for torrent, check crc and hash published, see that file downloaded a lot and commented ok,

  • I would like to DL the RC from MS. Not from P2P that will not give me a product code from MS. I have tried this from 2 different computers and both still give me the file corruption error at 99%. It has failed consistantly. I have done everything from removing temp files, cookes. history, removing the Active X controls, turning off firewalls and AVs. If both computers still can't do the DL I have to think this is something wrong with the DL manager or something on the server side.

    Please MS team, can you at least look into this? It seems to be a common issue.

  • This could help

    I'm not sure about hardware conifuration and your memory resources.  If you you have low system resources, then it would be best to run the download and wait till it finishes before you use the system for other tasks and programs.  Vista told me once that my download could be lost or become corrupted because I was using the internet to browse and run appications at the same time.  My system resources were low, my was Ram memory of 2GB and a Intel dual core processor in a Vista 64 bit enviroment.  When I downloaded Windows RC 7,  I did nothing with the computer until it was finished and I had no problems with the ISO file.

  • Thank you for your replay sprogis. I am pretty sure that I ran your senario at least to the point that I tried doing the DLs in the late night while I was away from the Vista system. I monitor resourses pretty well but I will try again this evening to a complete reboot after cleaning out any non essential files. ie; temps etc. The hardware configuration for the Vista system is a laptop with 2GB of RAM with a Dual Core 1.46GHz. The difference in our DLs are that I am using a 32bit versioin of Vista.

    I will let you know.

  • I've had the same experience, my guess is that the problem is with the ms download manager, can someone who knows how to check the crc and hash provide a bit more info so I can download safely from a p2p network ?

  • Still experiencing this same problem all over again and have tried with IE8, Mozilla whatever, always ends up announcing fatal error and file corrupt..
    If anyone has a solution available that would be nice.. ---------------------- ..after a few more failed download attempts with MS download manager, took the direct download address and typed it into Mozilla instead of using download manager - and magic, download finished 100% ok without fatal error and file corrupt notification. Off to try installing after a while and backing up old stuff. Hope this info could help someone experiencing same problem.
