    I came across this in a search on 8.1 update ISO.It starts off the same as the first post here,by stopping the download of update to get it to download on the PC.Then by using some commands from the command prompt to activate.Not saying this is a legal way,wondered if it works,from Germany,was translated.Be skeptical to try.It does suck that if i update and needed to restore system i'd have to first reinstall windows 8,then go back to store update it again,if reset does not work as said.

    I followed the OP's instructions in the first post and all went as planned. I aborted the 8.0 download, kicked off the 8.1 which immediately failed, kicked the 8.1 again and it downloaded.

    As to the Ghacks link, I wonder who's zooming who. The Ghacks post is dated the 19th, the OP posted on the 18th ... hmmmm

    I should add I had problems with the store update process, always failed when trying to restart. The upgrade from the ISO also failed! After some thinking how my boot partition is on a PCI-E Raid controller, I copied my boot image from the external controller SSDs to an auxiliary OS partition I have on the native MB controller - BINGO!

    After I got the basic 8.1 partition I copied it back to the external controller SSDs, no problems BTW, even my convoluted True Launch Bar migrated properly to the 8.1 taskbar and all my Adobe apps did not require de-& re-activation. It even migrated the Office 2003 claimed to be not compatible by the upgrade assistant.

    So I'm thinking if I had my OS partition on the native controller the store update would have worked. But I then might not have found this ISO download post .

    O.k. DJG sounded bit complicated for you,but it worked out.

    Still makes me wonder should i try it from first post too.I am use to trial and error tho,way i learn stuff.

    Chances with Microsoft not offering an ISO but a download to upgrade makes me leary if i ever need to recover the system have to always go through downloading it again.Not like days of a service pack.

    I might bite the bullet and buy full version.

    I keep getting this
    "Download did not complete successfully
    The download task did not complete
    Unspecified error"

    And a Finish box at the bottom to click on.
