    The letter fix is to be applied to an installation that does not boot up.

    It can't be used on your currently running windows. There is also no point, because that has booted up fine.

    If your attempt to reset rolled back, that indicates there is something about your system it doesn't like.

    MS really should give users the proper windows setup next time. This rejuvenation thing is not very reliable.

    There isn't a way round your issue, that I can see, except to use the proper installation media.

    You might be able to trick it into downloading the 8.1 files and create an iso. That requires your purchased 8.0 key to do the d/l, ( if you can get it to work - it often pretends it can't connect ). Then the default key to install it, then your purchased key again to activate. It also a big download.

    I think quite a lot will have resorted to d/l ing it from the nether reaches of the interweb.

    If you can manage that then you will end up 8.1 not 8.0.

    If you want to try all that , now is the time to look at the link Theog posted above.

    @ SIW2

    Hi Si

    Will "wiminstall" use a install.esd.

    No, sadly, .esd can't be applied with imagex or dism. They only work with wim or split wim files.

    why does it say it can't connect when it clearly is because it checks the code you put in ?

    I assume you put your legit 8.0 purchased key into the 8.0 Windows setup thing?

    If so, it is talking rubbish. It has decided it doesn't like your key, even though it said it was ok to begin with. I don't know how it decides that, seems to work for some and not for others.

    That is why people are downloading from the net. Not hard to find.

    You might check this post Windows 8.1 RTM (Core, Pro, Enterprise x86, x64) leaked

    It explains how to install , no too hard to figure out from that. You don't want the volume version.
