Check the md5sum of the downloaded ISO. If you are running Windows, go to and download the program. Run that, select the ISO, and check the output against the md5sum published on the site from which you downloaded the ISO. If they match, then the download is good.

The md5sum is like a fingerprint. If yours matched theirs, then you have an exact copy.
