    Ive been digging around MDL but all Ive found so far is torrents and I can't use those. Im looking for XP Pro sp3 that will activate with VLK. Im not asking for the VL Key, only the genuine .iso and I think the VLK I have should work on a genuine .iso, no? I deleted my geniune copy after I ran RVM intigrator and slipstreamed driverpacks thinking I wouldnt need it again (because I needed the space) but now I need it and cant find a non torrent link. can anyone help me with this?

    that'll work EFA11 but about verifying the hashes, I have been only verifying one of them in the past but should I check each or is it safe if the first one checks OK? many thanks!

    EFA11 Has given you 6 different places to download from. Your only going to download from one place. They are all the same. Just download one and check the hash. If it is OK your done! You now have what you asked for.:D

    thats not what (or who) Ive asked so maybe I wasnt clear enough. it seems that there is four types of hash's here: CRC-32, MD4, MD5, & SHA-1 to verify the .iso so does each of these need to be checked or will checking only one of them be sufficient?

    sha1 is always the better of them to check. I just spit them all out in case someone would like to check with a lesser algorithm

    Hey buddy did you get these to work with Windows Update? I downloaded a torrent version of XP SP3 Pro, which I wanted to do because it was something I could verify hash with, then added a product key from pastebin, but now anything that has to do with Windows Update just hangs eternally. Sometimes it downloads files into the SoftwareDistribution folder, but it doesn't fully download and finish it seems, and I've tried a ton of solutions out there to no avail. Do I just have to leave it downloading the updates for, say, three or more days or so? I'm trying this in Virtualbox. Plz give me a shout on whether you got it working with this and if you're using VB, because I think these updates are pretty important if I want to avoid easy malware... Plus I can't even update to IE 8...
