Like another person here posted, I have tried several times over the last few years to download the precompiled boot image file with no luck. I understand there's a direct link to it?

A setup file for the boot media may be downloaded from here:

Do you know why this is failing?

How long did the download take before failure?

Hi Barry.
I don't know why the downloads are failing; I believe the error message I get is the same as the other poster quoted: "Failed to download and install the AISBackup Restore Image file." (That's not exactly a helpful message.) There's never any sort of interruption to my service, as far as I know. It's happened on 3 different computers, one running XP, one Win7, and now Win8, over a period of several years. I've also lived at 2 different addresses during that time, so using different DSL facilities. It's very strange, since I assume other people download it just fine.

Unfortunately, I also don't know how long it runs before failing, but I do know that it's a long time; so long that I get tired of waiting for it to finish, so I leave the computer and go do something else.

I will try the link you gave me. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
