are you using Safari for the download ?
There seems to be a problem when using Safari for the download.
Try either Firefox or Opera for this.
Hope it helps

Currently Being ModeratedOct 23, 2009 12:01 PM (in response to The hatter)Unless I am mistaken, this does not download an .ISO file. When I hit "Download" on the confirmation window, it saved a very small file "DLMWin7Pro64US.exe" to my Downloads folder. I then used CrossOver to run the file which proceeded to download the install files from Microsoft.
Once the download was finished, there were three files in my Downloads folder.
I ran the first file with CrossOver and it produced a folder called "expandedSeup" containing the files you would find on an install DVD:
Now all the files are here on my computer, but no matter what I do with them, I cannot get them onto a disk or into a .DMG or .ISO or .CDR format to run in BootCamp or Parallels.
Does anyone know of a solution to this?Macbook Pro (Mid 2008), Mac OS X (10.6.1), 4GB RAM, 200GB HTCHI (7200RPM)
got to love microsoft.
i got the same bunch of stuff when i downloaded a student copy via digital river. i was just trying to run it on the windows side, and it wouldn't work. so poking around the web i found how to make it into an .iso file that you can use disk utility to mount to a dvd. unfortunately this fix works only on the windows side.
after i made a bootable dvd, windows 7 installed fine. but then to install the bootcamp drivers on the 64 bit version, you have to run the 64 bit driver installer from it's .msi file found on the snow leopard cd on the windows side in the drivers/apple/bootcamp64.msi.
now i just have to figure out how to get the wireless to connect, the bluetooth to connect, and on and on. oh how i hate microsoft...macbook pro, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
