please tell me how to check the integrity ?
and I'm also curious to know the details present in it so can any one please simplify it and tell me what it says ?
Thanks in advance
The iso file you have download has a checksum it is mentioned by the file you have download.
A lot of burning Application gives you a checksum before before burning .
Both checksum should be the same .
If they are not don't use the file .
The purpose of the checksum fore you is to check if file you download is OK.
