I tried to verify my download checksum in mac's disk utility but it couldn't find a checksum to verify.Also tried to burn ISO at slowest speed and still it couldn't verify the burn. Any other hints to verify download or get a clean burn?

If you need to verify an MD5 checksum on a Mac, you need to do this:

Open Terminal

Type openssl md5 [filename]

Change ‘md5′ to ‘sha1′ if you want to verify the SHA-1 hash as well.
