NOTE: Unless otherwise stated, the CRC values for all of the "fixed" builds are based on ISO files that were re-generated using the ISO9660 file system and NOT the Joliet file system!

 

 

Of course, as more builds come out in the future, I'll go back and update this page accordingly.

These CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) values were generated using Microsoft's CRC Verification Utility v3.00 which can be downloaded from here. If someone else wishes to mirror the download, then be my guest.

To generate your value, place a copy of the previously mentioned EXE beside the ISO, open a Command Prompt, change to that location (i.e. cd downloads), and run the utility providing it the name of the file (i.e. crc <ISOFilename>). Afterwards it will report the resulting CRC value which you can then compare to the ones above. It will also tell you if your download is outright corrupt.

Hope it helps and here's to the future of Longhorn!
