    I have downloaded 7600.16385.090713-1255_x64fre_client_en-us_Retail_Ultimate-GRMCULXFRER_EN_DVD.iso five separate times from the link in the Repository. Each time the file has had a different MD5 and SHA-1 number and none of them have matched those listed by Microsoft as genuine. What gives??

    Well I checked (with HashCheck Shell Extension) the latest iso that I downloaded and I am now getting the correct hash numbers. REALLY strange because the first time I checked the same iso, the hash numbers were different from what I'm getting now!

    So, I just checked it for a third time and I'm getting different numbers again! I've checked three times and each time have gotten different MD5 and SHA-1 numbers for the same file. What could be the problem?

    How big is the ISO dl. should be about 3.00 GB. If it's less perhaps your dl didn't complete

    It is the correct size, the file downloaded completely. I checked it with several other Hash checking tools and got the same, and correct, MD5 and SHA-1 numbers. I believe the problem is the HashCheck Shell Extension program, as I was able to get correct numbers multiple times with the two other programs I used.
