    Indeed it is... there is a 500+Mb ISO and the Windows Update size will be from 70Mb upwards, but the standalone x86 installer that Geoff and I have made available is 316Mb...

    Ok nice one. It's odd for an RTM SP be be smaller than the beta version.

    I'm not saying it'll be perfect, and I'm sure SP3 will have some problems (which is why i will test it first).
    Does that mean it'll come with WM9, as in SP2 ?

    Is the SP3 install file digitally signed?

    Err I'm pretty sure the correct one was (316MB) and the other one wasent, it looks all good to me its not showing a build number in System Properties or winver which is normally a good sign.

    Spent all day repairing after the BSOD on a install.

    The first repair kept rebooting saying something about virtual memory and scandisk repaired lots of files that where okay before.

    Just managed to get it back on but IE doens;t work still.

    Boooooo
