    You could put your mind at rest by doing what is the post directly above - check bootmgr, even simpler that that, just see if there any folders dated 30/9/13, like this:

    OK, I was trying 7-zip 9.22 and 9.20, but only 9.25 and later do the WIMs. Although doing the Notepad search for "9 6 0 0" in boot.wim yielded only four 16384 build numbers, the properties on the extracted winload.exe using 7-zip 9.25 do proclaim a 16415 build.

    I do show two updates for win x64 (KB2884846 and KB2895219) as well as a camera codec, flash and IE 11 updates since installation. I thought the GA would already have those in it. Or are these post-GA updates?

    I created a DVD from the ISO, so I am ready to upgrade - thanks! But, before I do, will there be an install option where I can keep all of my settings, installed programs, and data? I could not update/upgrade through the Windows Store because (like many people) it downloaded to 50%, starts to install, then re-starts the download. I just do not want to do a fresh install or reset right now...

    ^^^ Yes, it will do an excellent job of migrating your full configuration. It did for me and I have apps like Lightroom, Adobe Suites, Calman, Nero and many utilities. Even my convoluted True Launch Bar got migrated perfectly to the taskbar, as did Avast! 2014 and Outpost Firewall Pro.

    Windows RT 8.1 Update Removed Microsoft is investigating a situation affecting a limited number of users updating their Windows RT devices to Windows RT 8.1.
    As a result, we have temporarily removed the Windows RT 8.1 update from the Windows Store.
    We are working to resolve the situation as quickly as possible and apologize for any inconvenience. We will provide updates as they become available.

    Windows 8 Pro With Media Center


    First, I just want to give thanks to the OP and others who helped in this thread. I got the ISO and will be doing a clean install during the week. I have a quick question about Media Center. The only way to keep MC is to do the update? I have never seen an ISO with it included.

    Thanks
    Klaian

    I tried it, but neither my Windows 8 Pro upgrade key or my original Windows 7 key is accepted... I guess I have to wait until they fix the Windows Store upgrade.
