"I don't see any errors server-side.."
FWIW my only evidence of this is the FDM message
"Have you tried the 32bits version?"
Just curious, are you using the latest Firefox?
Just tried it 32bit d/l. Much faster d/l rate, but in the end the same thing happened. Eagleget progress bar says 100%, at which time but the d/l monitor gets stuck on "0 KB/S" and never fully completes the d/l.
As far as the other problem I was having, I misjudged how long WinPESE X64 14393 17.01.16 takes to load up after reboot. I didnt wait long enough and thought it failed.
Works fine with both cd and usb. Looks very impressive.
