    Something foiling my ISO download


    Slow connection trying to download ISO overnight.

    I'm trying to figure out what's foiling my ISO download using Firefox Down Them All. I set Sleep, HD, Hibernate and Display timeouts to Never in Power Options. I disabled the Lock Screen and Password, which also disabled Inactivity Timeout in Group Policy.

    So I only turn off my monitor, yet when I come back something has stopped the download. It won't resume, just starts over.

    Any ideas?

    Also, is turning the monitor off the same as setting Display to Never or is there some display energy being expended anyway on a laptop? And would display timing out affect a download?

    Thanks.

    What does "powercfg" report?

    Turning off the monitor is not the same.

    Are you getting it from here ?

    How are you connected? Wired? Or wireless?

    It didn't seem to be interrupted and appears to have finished. Is 9860 x64 ISO correct size 3.70gb?

    There is no official 9680 ISO by the way. What is listed on MSDN is the older build, the pre upgrade build. I'm guessing you didn't download this ISO from Microsoft? Or it isn't the 9680 build.

    Yeah. It's the same file size as the ISO I created:

    There is no official source for build 9860. The 3.71GB ISO that I created is what I used for the clean install of 9860.
