verification mismatch on windows 7 download

Postby chushingura » Wed Nov 22, 2017 12:32 pm

Hi, I have been trying to install a dual boot system on windows 7 but am getting a mismatch verification code. I have tried four times downloading 18.1 and 18.2 on different mirrors on all the code is wrong. Help Please.

If you use a bitTorrent it checks a file in 1MiB fragments downloaded from many different places. When it says 'finished' you can move straight on to burn-a-boot-medium.

They even give you a chance to practice your sha256sum skills on something a bit smaller than a Mint ISO...

If you only have access to md5sum it still works to confirm what-you-got matches what-was-sent.
