    I am amazed you don't have 7-zip. It is free, tiny and an absolute necessity.

    I have no idea if you can open .wim with winrar, perhaps you can.

    As it appears the hashes are all different, posting a hash of the .iso isn't going to help.

    Question: you're telling me they would put out a new build over couple of days of Windows 8.1 being out, or is it that there is just the one in microsoft store and the technet one leaked over internet?This is getting confusing

    @jds63

    If you followed the instructions posted by mosh, I don't see how you would have downloaded the wrong file.

    The technet one is from August. The new one was built on 30/9/13



    @Theog

    Thanks for your hashes, it confirms your install.esd is different from mine.

    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)

    Download Windows 8.1 Enterprise Evaluation
    What are you going to do when the 90 days runs out?
    Sorry for being out of sequence with the flow,

    well... I am not using windows 8 (or 8.1) at the moment. Server has metro and it does what I need.
    In any event, when Stardock gets Deskscapes to work on the start screen properly in their upcoming new release, I may upgrade 8 to 8.1...but for Enterprise 90 day trial, I would gladly reinstall... I don't seem to be having install issues... It only takes about 7 or 8 minutes to reinstall to default configuration.
    ...and being the bored geek that I am, choose to pass the time reinstalling stuff.

    It's still a nice freebie to get it and not have to use a product key.

    @JDS

    An easier way is to use poweriso or similar to copy bootmgr out and look at the properties, it is smaller than the RTM and was modified on 29/9/13

    File: bootmgr
