    Can you all please post the hashes for your install.esd file, then we can see.

    Here are the ones I have right now:

    8.1 x64 Pro En-US

    File: install.esd
    CRC-32: ae2b9d58
    MD4: 68d9f2723bf3155cf756c5fb0476d68c
    MD5: 8f45bbf507bde044873daef8dca1b81e
    SHA-1: 1b23cb436c6c1b7fbdebbda5bbea6a6aa3ad9685

    8.1 X64 PRO EN-GB

    File: install.esd
    CRC-32: de4a16d2
    MD4: 3c3dc6e63603dd545b33c5ab88d12685
    MD5: 7449e8dbdfa339e269dcc825dc64476d
    SHA-1: 759bed8391a5ace12fd5bf66087aec07c6e88d29

    If you don't have a hashchecker, this is probably the easiest Download Installer (85 KiB)

    I downloaded two days ago following Mosharino's process, I just checked my boot.wim and it's 9600.16384, the RTM from the comments here. I started a new download which is half-way through, I'll see if they have changed the build.

    Some of the files still are 16384, that is why I suggested checked winload.exe

    @GirlFriday

    Do you still have the files downloaded during update?

    Iirc they are deleted (mostly ) during the process.

    I'm not sure. I didn't delete anything. Which directory would they be in?

    Then just check it with rt click >properties.

    16415 is the new version of that file.Modified 30/9/13
    Well this does not work for me.How do you open the WIM file,what program does that and how do you copy out the winload.exe to the desktop?I am using PowerISO.Those instructions are little vague for people who are not too familiar with this process.

    If it tells you the wim has an incorrect file count, just OK it. MS are making the wims differently just now.
