    6.Set the Custom Refresh image you created earlier to be the "current" image and refresh to it on top of the clean install you did in step 5 , taking you to 8.1... but this is the bit that I'm wondering about?
    Would that not be using the Custom Refresh image, as a Install.wim

    I believe you can't Reset from a custom Refresh image for instance, so I'm not sure it's quite the same.
