Question [Q] Flash Desire HD to stock ROM

This sounds like a piece of cake, but I'm just not seeing it.

The DHD has the ClockWork Mod installed.
I did the bootloader edit to get a permanent root.

Now I want to get the stock HTC rom back on it (no root, original recovery).
I've tried the .exe RUU, but it didn't work.

Installing the rom.zip with CWM also gave an error:

Installing: SDCARD:rom.zip
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
E: Can't open /sdcard/rom.zip
(bad)
Installation aborted

What else can I do? Please don't say 'Flash the original ROM' because I don't exactly know what it means. A (moderate) step by step guide would be very, very nice.

Added log from ROM Manager:

Rename rom.zip to PD98IMG.zip. Copy and paste PD98IMG.zip to dir SD card. Run bootloader and follow the instructions on the screen.

this will overwrite EVERYTHING (clockworkmod recovery and HBOOT) so be careful if you need them.

Try using the RUU for 1.32 or 1.72. It's easier
However, if you want the zip, go to the 1.72/1.82 downgrade thread in the android developement section. You should find it there

So just run the .exe and its good? Im assuming we'll loose S-OFF, Radio-OFF, and Root right?
