Here's what I am betting happened.  When you downloaded the images, you
downloaded the boot-RHEA-1999:044.img file instead of boot-RHEA-1999-044.img . .
. Windoze is translating the ":" in the first filename to a "_" and this is what
is causing the problem.  Try downloading the files which have the "-" in them
and try again.  Reopen this bug if you are still having problems.
