    I've got the same problem. I've already installed x64, which incidently
    installed and worked fine except there's hardly any drivers compatible with
    it yet. Since the lack of drivers renders it virtually useless right now I
    tried downloading and installing x86. I'm installing from a hard boot and
    after I enter the product key it says "Windows failed to read image file" and
    setup cancels. I'm going to try reformatting that drive before the install,
    but it doesn't sound like that's the problem. I suspect a faulty download,
    but I don't look forward to another 5 hour wait. Any suggestions?...anyone?

    sounds like a bad download.
