    Below is a image of the iso. I have yet to burn it and upload it. Stay tuned for more info because my internet is crap;)

    Staff edit - The leaked build of this is fake, post has been moved to Computer and Technology Discussion to avoid any confusion.

    then stay with the x86 it will serve ;-) you well.
    its rock stable.
    If you dont need a server you dont need it.

    thats why no one is getting 7978 x64 because of the stunt pulled last time. they didnt even test it and look what poped up sfter testing.

    The build is fake and you got it from the torrent that was going around, a quick Google will reveal that.



    People respect you for your Xbox 360 updates, dont go and ruin your reputation.

    Real proof could easily have been provided to backup your claim if you had a real copy of the build.

    Open the registry editor and go to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE ->SOFTWARE ->Microsoft -> Windows NT -> CurrentVersion

    Here you can change: CurrentBuild, CSDVersion, BuildLab, Version and so on.

    If you really did install that 7978 i would re format your PC asap.
