Hey I don't know if this is the right place to post it, if it is not, I'd ask for a moderator to move it.
I've been getting some Whistler builds from AbyssUnderground and 2 of the ones I got are corrupted. Could someone confirm this?
The builds are 2250 Professional and 2296 Professional.

Another thing, is some of them are not bootable. Is there a way to make them bootable? Installing them from winnt.exe takes forever to copy the files to hard disk (of it is just a Virtual PC issue?).

Thanks in advance!

2250 is fine, and 2296 is also fine. Your downloads are corrupting so download them again or see if your ISP is having issues.

Thanks! Thats weird, I'm downloading them with flashget, and only these two came corrupted...
Well, so I'm going to download them again. Bad thing my speed is low, but whatever.

What about the non bootable issue? Is there a way to make them bootable? :\

You should use a proper client (EG FileZilla). Most people seem to have issues with FlashGet (at least thats the trend I've seen).

Thx for the info.
But -sigh- i think I got my IP banned now

Code:
[13:22:43] 550 No connections allowed from your IP


I was just going to browse the ftp again I got it. Is it because i was already downloading something?...

That must've been the IP I banned for trying to open more than 4 connections.

The problem Iv'e found in the past is the ISO being rarred is sometimes
corrupt, then it is packed using winrar...
Then when checking the rarred archive it checks out to be OK when in
fact the ISO was corrupt before packing it...
ALL builds of 2509 getting around the OSBA servers was like this...
Every rarred download checked out to be OK, yet every ISO within the
downloaded archive was corrupt, took years to finally find a good one...
2462 Datacenter was the same...

You keep either attempting to connect over 4 times, or you got the password/login wrong 10 times.

Thats pretty weird. Must be flashget issue. I was still using it because I was finishing the download I started there, and i got banned when there was 2mb left to finish.

I already told you FlashGet has issues. Get yourself a proper client and you won't get banned if you set the options properly.

I know, I already installed filezilla as I said I was just finishing the download I started with flashget.

To make the Whistler CD bootable, you need an ISO editor (I recommend MagicISO since this is what I used) and the Windows XP/2000 CD boot sector..

  • After installing MagicISO, open your Whistler ISO or rip it from a CD.
  • Then, in the tools menu, click Load Boot Image
  • Click the option "From bootable Image File"
  • Then browse to the XP Boot sector file.
  • Save it
  • Burn it if necessary
  • And your done

You can finish the download with FileZilla, thats what "resume" is for.

Ok I just didn't know FileZilla could resume downloads started using Flashget.

In theory you should be able to resume downloads started from any client.

It happens because FlashGet for default opens about 5 slots for every file that are in fact 5 connections. Try to set it in options or close some slots ;)

It can't, because they work differently. FileZilla writes to the file at its end, increasing its size gradually, while FlashGet allocates space for the entire file when you start the download, and writes to it randomly. The end result is that if you try to resume a FlashGet download using FileZilla, it'll just say it's done and won't do anything.

In theory - with all these commercial software stuff around, they want to keep you away from competitor's softwares as much as possible :P :(

Err, bump and a half? Over a year. Read the rules. This is your ONLY WARNING or you will be banned.
