    There seems to be some modified copies that have made into the one click full ISO downloads (check the the sticky above).

    Verify the hash or you will get smoked:D

    You should always verify the hash. But thanks for the reminder.

    Isn't this a risk with all downloads not originating from M$? If we are downloading an OS that is yet to be launched, we better have enough common sense to make sure it is untouched, as close to legit as possible :D

    if you hash-check the iso's than there is nothing to worry about.

    That's a bit much having to download the iso first to hash check you expect correct hashes as stated before you download.
