Hadn't really looked into it. I want something that will support TRIM and I think I want to run three drives in raid 0 since that seems to be the sweet spot before diminishing returns. 3x60gb would probably suffice storage-wise, but 3x80gb would be better and the same price once in stock.

I started downloaded Windows 7 Ultimate at 6.45pm, the download speed was 500KB but after that it went down to between 89KB to 300KB. Guess it will take 3 to 4 hours to complete.

You may want to check it out, if for nothing else but to provide more options. You can read all about them here.

The MD5s match the copies that were already leaked. Why bother downloading this from there - grab it from somewhere else alot faster.

Newsgroups ftw!!

Down to 35KB/sec... Getting it off the newsgroups is sounding more attractive assuming someone posts the identical ISO.

Also, the Server 2008 R2 section has been completely removed.

Thanks for letting us know it's possible
that kind of info could save people alot of time and space by removing the need to DL and store multiple versions.

but why so vague. "one tiny file" "that small file" . why not name the file and it's location on the disc or iso ? though it's not hard to find why not just tell us to edit or delete \sources\ei.cfg.

More people downloading more version means slower than optimal DL speeds for a longer duration..


The DL is running really slow for me in the 20-40KB range
