The "new build" withdrawal symptoms would get too nasty :pinch:

This should teach you a lesson. Never download anything illegally. You got a week left, you can handle it. Come the 5th, you have the official download and you can know that one will have no problems whatsoever.

Is the 7100 the real RC? If so, better wait for the offical one. Some people can't wait, besides it's only a few hundreds of MB worth of difference from what build your could be still using. I'm still on 7057.

What the specs requirements for a 64bit? I've been downloading 32bit versions, afraid that my much too customized Firefox and Thunderbird might not work under 64bit.

Crap - I have definatley learnt my lesson with this one - I downloaded that hash plugin and my version had different things for the x64 version :(

MD5 Hash was 1C2AE249E6754E33D0FDD6CA07127D7B
SHA1 Hash was 2B3A10785F77E7E6D46B7134E8EE807E9F7337E7
and CRC32 was D84794E3

:( I feel cheated now!

Booting from ISO after a cold restart - that should mean the setup.exe was skipped correct?

If your problem is bookmarks etc just get XMarks (ex-Foxmarks). Works wonders, makes transitions and re-formatting easy.

On a different note, do you guys think its possible for the official 5th May RC to have newer internal drivers/hardware support? Or it'll definitely be 100% identical to current leaked one?

I would hope that come May 5th, the RC released would be a newer build then this one, considering alot of people are complaining about blue screens and minor bugs like the exe one in explorer. If those two were fixed id say 7 is a go for RTM :)

*phew* Yeah, if you got it from the very very first torrent, then it should be fine. :)

Nah I don't use bookmarks very much. I can live without some bookmarks I have now. I have a html file with all the links on it of all sites I visit.

Honestly, I don't think its hard for to find a legit release as long as you don't go a click the first download you see. Always research the comments before you download. But of course, checking the MD5 is the most definite way to be sure before installing.

The golden rule with windows 7 is don't admit downloading it or you will get a warning. Everyone in this thread is incriminating themselves. So I'm going to close this thread.
