    Hi to all!!: I'm new to this forum but I've found very important and useful information on many topics, so I will begin congratulating all the members for all these wonderful posts!!. Recently I added to my collection the original ISO (MSDN hash matched!) of Office Professional Plus 2013 (x86 and x64) - DVD (Spanish), It was impossible for me to find a working link to download the original ISO named es_office_professional_plus_2013_x86_x64_dvd_1149773.iso, so I followed a brilliant thread started by LostED titled ''SmartVersion patch's conversions Microsoft Office 2013 SP1 VOLUME EN2XX'' and I got it this way. Now I'm planning to do the same with some Windows 8 ISOs I don't have and I want to know, just for the record, if there are any differences between the ISOs obtained by this procedure and the originals from MSDN.

    Thanks a lot in advance!!

    Filenames can differ, but as long as the SHA-1 hash is the same, it will have the same contents.
    Not a single byte will be different.

    the same MD5 may be different files
    the same SHA1, should be the same files because we can't find a counter-example

    Thanks a lot to murphy78, EFA11 and estore for their quick replies to my question, now I have plenty of information on the subject and can undoubtedly trust in the ISOs obtained using SmartVersion patches as long as the SHA-1 hashes match!! :)[h=3][/h]

    MD5 is no longer good correct, it can be changed. Sha-1 not yet. Sha-2 (was made by the NSA heh heh hrrmm..) will be more widely used soon enough, if not adopted directly to Sha-3 (le sponge!)
