    Windows 8.1 (from TechNet or MSDN) has to update to very large patches, as from couple of days go. Windows 8 upgrade already has them
    The TechNet ISO's are multi edition, they have the files to install Core or Pro. The 64 bit edition is 3.8 gigs. The downloaded ISO via this workaround is single edition only, Core or Pro, depending on what product code you enter. The file size will vary depending of if its 32 bit or 64 bit, Core or Pro. As far as why its smaller than the store update download, my guess is its because one is an ISO file and the other isn't. The ISO likely contains compressed files and the temporary store download doesn't.

    I right clicked the set up and found only the first bit 9600. How did you see the entire build number?
    The build numbers are the same

    Windows 8.1 GA Build number: 9600.16404-130913-2141 (The ISO downloaded via my instructions)

    Windows 8.1 RTM Build Number: 9600.16384.130821-1623
    This is after doing a clean install of 8.1 using the ISO.

    Open the registry and navigate to

    > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > Windows NT > Current Version

    To the right you will see info about the build number etc

    There is NO Windows 8 Core to download.
