    Windows 8.1 installations files [By Windows Store]

    So i was searching for quite sometime almost killing the night, but it was worth it....
    Like most of the people, i downloaded the windows 8.1 update through windows store, but i also wanted to have the files the setup uses for installation, and i`m pretty sure i found them... Well, not to brag, here`s the screenshot.

    So what i discovered is that, you better hurry and copy all the files to another location, because as soon as the process "Modern Setup Host" ends, all the files will be deleted from that location.

    So i also tried to find ways to create ISO image from the installation files, and i found the following link.

    Thanks for sharing that. It the double setup trick has been used on this forum a lot already. The files screenshot we have already also. There is no boot.wim in sources, so if you want to make an iso, you would need hold to get hold of a copy, might be ok to use one from 8.0
