    So I got a new 11" MacBook Air with the ext. SuperDrive and am looking to install Windows 7 on it.

    Fired up Boot Camp and downloaded the drivers... crawled along slowly but surely (looked like it would take ~1 hour to complete) and decided to take a quick shower while waiting.

    15 minutes later I got back to the Mac and was surprised to see that it had completed the download already, and was prompting me to transfer it to some form of external media. Burned it to a CD-R, verification was OK and all seems well.

    Just anal about things like this and I'd like to see if anyone could verify that the exact file size is '559,398,912 bytes' (559.4MB on disk)(this is on a CD, not a flash drive)? Just worried since the download seemed to have completed unusually quick, on my normally slow-as-molasses network (oh, and someone on another forum mentioned that the file was 562MB...)

    I would get a MD5 hash but don't know any checksum checkers for Mac OS X.

    If anyone's wondering, yes the drivers installed fine, no there were no problems.

    Launch the terminal > "md5 path/to/file" (alternatively you can drag the file on to the window instead of typing the path).
