Hello @lazaro1

Most of the information is posted on this page.

if you mean to verify the iso, just compare the checksums

Welcome to the forum! :smile:

If you want to verify the ISO in Windows, there should be several tools for that available in the Microsoft Store.

Not sure but utility CertUtil in Windows should be able to do it.

In Windows the easiest way (no installation of anything) is to use PowerShell:

Get-Filehash EndeavourOS_Cassini_Nova-03-2023.iso -Algorithm SHA512

and compare the Hash output with the contents of EndeavourOS_Cassini_Nova-03-2023.iso.sha512sum

If the two are the same, all is good; if they aren’t, the ISO file didn’t download properly.
