I just downloaded the Windows 7 trial to have a play with. The file downloaded fine and the integrity check was also fine.

However the file type is just shown as "File" and I assumed it was supposed to be an .iso? I have an .iso burner which can't find it of course due to the file type so wondering what has happened?

What size is the file you have?

The windows 7 beta is around 2.4GB in size.

I renamed the file with an .iso extension. When right clicking on it now it shows as an .iso file so I will burn it and see what happens. The size is 2.44gb, not 2.55 as I posted above.
