    I am in the process of doing a new/clean install of Win XP Pro. I have saved the image on my disk (drive E) and also to a DVD. When I try and verify the image on my hard drive I get the dreaded "Image is corrupt" however when I verify the image that's stored on the DVD I receive no error messages at all! Can anyone provide me with an explanation. (Chkdsk on E shows no irregularities on the drive).

    A next step would be to generate a hash of each file and see if they are the same.

    If they are it would imply that they are either both corrupt, or both OK :)
    More interesting would be if they differed - that would suggest that the one on the disk really is corrupt.
