    Using refresh files in 8.1


    How do you refresh files in 8.1 , If you got the upgrade over the net?

    You don't. You will need to reinstall Windows 8.0 then upgrade to 8.1 again unless you can get a 8.1 ISO.

    That's the million dollar question. Search Google for a Windows 8.1 download that matches what you have. Once downloaded, make sure the MD5/SHA check sums match a known good iso.

    There is no known legal download site for Windows 8 or 8.1.

    If you had a retail key then you could do this: Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

    If you are using CoreSingleLanguage, that is harder to find. It is different from Core.

Hi guys, what do I do if the refresh install on W8.1 says that I'm missing files? I installed W8 from a retail disc and upgraded to 8.1 via Windows Update. I can't use the W8 disc, it says invalid media. Do I just follow the steps shown on the tutorial here? Thanks.
