HELLO EVERYONE ON HTG,

IS IT POSSIBLE THAT BEFORE DOWNLOADING ANY ISO, WE CAN MAKE SURE THAT THE CORRECT FILE GETS DOWNLOADED AND IT'S SHA-1 HASH VALUE DIDN'T GETS CHANGED...?? I HAD DOWNLOADED WINDOWS 8 CP X86 2.5GB FILE, BUT IT'S SHA-1 HASH VALUE GOT CHANGED WHILE DOWNLOADING AND NOW I AM UNABLE TO USE THAT IMAGE FILE.

Re-download it. Sounds like it was corrupted in transit.

Did you burn it to disk as an image. (Recommend ImageBurn) Just burning the file to disk will not work.

scorpion, that's a bit of a silly question. You can have a blip on the net connection, and not even know it.

@ GuiltySpark & Xhi
First I tried to extract the setup files and run on my current Windows 7, but the setup didn't accepted the Product Key. Then I used Rufus to create a bootable pendrive and install from it, but it was giving an error like this...

@ scorpion99 I downloaded this file in about 3 days... through IDM.

Download it normally without IDM and check hash value here : http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/iso

Although I don't think this is the problem, do you have a netbook or a laptop ?
