Here's the MD5 I got from HashCalc: 5104f5a88b12cb52b1369760a88e5841
Others please confirm.

It's the same here: 5104f5a88b12cb52b1369760a88e5841

According to the home page one is supposed to rename the .img file to .iso. Does anybody know what the reason they don't supply it as an .iso file is?

Not really. My developement box isn't connected online in any way. This is invaluable.

Well in that case its necessary. But it must suck. If I need to loop up something, I usually google it.

Nah, it doesn't suck. The lookup of info (majority of the time) is faster than trying to do an online search for it. I write software for a living (and digital photography part time) and I don't connect a mission critical machine to any type of network. That's how the code for Win2000 and HalfLife (among others) were taken.

i have always found it surprising that microsoft doesn't supply an MD5 or CRC checksum for these huge downloads..
