    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.



    O.K. I successfully downloaded the ISO.I might be a noob on this but can someone explain GA and RTM to me,what they mean,what differences are?Plus what are the consequences of a build number for future updates to Windows 8.1.ty It is a fact some were able to do a clean install too?

    I haven't read all 26 pages of this thread so...

    Hello. .... don't mean to gloat, but, I had an ISO of 8.1 Enterprise 90 day downloaded in about 10 minutes.
    It was up and running in 7 minutes after that.
    I know it's not 8.1 Pro retail but it is RTM build 9600 and does not require a product key.

    @Dave44

    What are you using right now?

    Is it the 8.1 x64 RTM Pro that has been floating around?

    If you are using the same PC with Win 8.1 Pro in it, you won't be able to download the ISO as it checks the system.
    EDIT:
    I have tried in my laptop with 8.1 with no luck, but when I tried in my nephews desktop with Win 7, it downloaded without any problem.

    I know. I was just offering a suggestion. ok. I am for the time being, anyway, doing just fine with server.
    At least it is one way to get ISO 8.1 TODAY (free) if you can. (no product key required)
