Hi,

The error "The file is too long. This operation is currently limited to supporting files less than 2 gigabytes in size" points to a problem with the partition where you are trying to perform the test or some limitation on the interpreter (not an expert on PowerShell).

To be honest, trying to solve that issue is probably going to take a lot of effort and time. It will be probably easier and quicker (in the long run) just to burn the image to an USB drive and then use the check utility included with the distribution (Test this media before start)

Cheers

Hi, One of my friends told me about a Windows native application, you should able to run

certutil -hashfile the.installer.file.iso SHA256

to obtain the hash for the file and use the output to compare with the one published.

Cheers
