    Perfect matches! Different sizes! Oh well, it works with no errors, no burps, no hiccups. Maybe it's something in the water here, or in Germany! Go figure.....

It will begin the setup process, which looks just like you had gotten it from Windows Update. Go from there and enjoy!

    If you don't have the ISO on external drive, burn the DVD. Then OPEN it, not install. Right click the setup.exe as above and proceed. Once the process has gotten thru the setup copy of files and is churning away, you can eject the DVD. CAUTION! The process will, as usual, re-boot several times. DO NOT "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD". Let it timeout and boot back to install. Get the DVD out of drive!

    Have fun, it's not hard!
    and the next step is......................
    Download all the ESDs to OneDrive so we can all install from OneDrive.............
    OK, you skin that idea while I think up another one!

    Boot from the Cloud! Hook a monitor, keyboard, and mouse to your router. Yeah, right!

    Not to worry TomCat..................... Kari will be along in a minute with a tutorial to install from OneDrive but he'll have to use an ISO rather than the ESD.......

    No way Jose! There's no need to store something on your OneDrive which can be directly downloaded from Microsoft .

    It took me four and a half hours to download the 64bit ESD for 074 yesterday and the 32bit version will take three and a half hours this morning.
    It sure would be nice to go to OneDrive, click on an ISO, and then SETUP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    EDIT:
    No reason why MS couldn't use this same idea to release the RTM??

    When I started my studies, Monday after the last World War , we used DEC mainframes or minicomputers as they were called, with VAX/VMS. The coding was done in Cobol or Fortran. The terminals we used were all dumb, no CPU, no nothing except the display and keyboard which were connected to mainframe.

    Thinking it now it is amazing how we managed to connect to the DEC mainframe at school / university from home using the first IBM PCs and a 300 baud modem, but that we did; in fact, one of the courses I had in early 80's was "work from home" (my free translation from Finnish) in which we had to stay home a day a week and do all the studying using the remote connection over the phone line to school computer. If you had to ask the professor something which came not clear using the "online" conversation tools, you had to disconnect the IBM from the phone line, call the professor, and then afterwards armed with new set of instructions make the IBM call the school again (nobody had two lines back then, at least not in Finland).

    Yes, I recall. I was in the military then. My young cousin had badge #9 with DEC.
    The 300baud modem was a piece of work!
    When I decided that computers might amount to something I acquired a 300bd modem which gave me no end of trouble.
    I finally discovered that it worked fine "upside down", yep, and it remained on the desk upside down until the day it died!
    Such fun!!!
