    kompendium, glad that you got it figured out. But that hash of the downloaded ISO that you originally posted was the 32 bit one.

    BTW, I have an OEM installed SD card reader (most modern computers does) & I had no problem. Anyway, good to see you're up & running.

    I suppose this needs to be added as a possible installation issue, especially if more users comes forward with it.

    Thanks for letting us know.

    This evidently is with particular SD card drives as mine work fine. I do not see this problem. I also have the SD card reader built into my laptop.

    Yes, it must be particular card readers. For reference, I have a Dell XPS 8100.

    Can you go to Device Manager and see what model SD Card reader. Mine is a Ricoh Memory Card Reader/Writer. (I actually got the card reader Name from the PC manufacturer's web site. I could not find it in Device Manager)

    Mine doesn't say the model in the Device Manager either. On the manufacturer's website I found it referred to as 'Foxconn Card Reader (FITI PID9106)'. I tried installing that but it didn't seem to work.

    I wonder if the card reader manufacturer would have a driver that works. Check this site.

    That website seems to have two drivers for the card reader, both are the same as on the Dell website. Tried them both and they don't work unfortunately.

    I've just been playing around with it a bit and it does actually work fine when I enable it in device manager, so it seems that the driver has actually done the trick even though it still classes it as generic device, unless it is using the default windows driver perhaps. However, I still don't want to keep it enabled because of the shut down problem. People have said that this was not a problem in the consumer preview (I didn't use that myself) so I think Microsoft need to look into what has caused this to happen in the release preview.
