You've forgotten the SHA256 option in the CertUtil command, so it's defaulting to the SHA1 hash.

Per the tutorial, it should be ...

Code: Select all

CertUtil -hashfile filename.iso SHA256

Hi!
When I type command "CertUtil -hashfile filename.iso SHA256" command failed and I get error 0xd0000225 (-805305819). I decided to mount the ISO image without checking, but when I tried it I get a massege "need to download additional files 'Idlinux.sys' and 'Idlinux.bss' from the Internet" so I didn't go further. Can you advise a solution?

Can't help you with the Windows error, but you should be able to generate a SHA256 hash by other means. A quick internet search revealed several options. For example ...

Not able to download the files, just get a windows pop wanting me to download an HTML file called "download", BTW I right-clicked and followed all the instructions up to that point, so something must have happened to those files or the instructions aren't complete.

It's not the files, but the EvoWise CDN again, which has always proved problematic in my personal experience. It should come back online soon.

You can find them on the HEAnet mirror as well, which is the source from which the other mirrors propagate.

The sha256sum files are located on each mirror.

Apparently the EvoWise mirror has been retired. :?
