    I recommend that you wait for the Windows 8.1 Update 1 ISO image, which will be released at the beginning of next month.

    But if you want to learn new things:

    Windows Integration Guide - murphy78

    "Basics of Offline integration."
    "Make an ISO file using that modified integration image."

    MSMG ToolKit for Windows 8.1/Windows Server 2012 R2 - v1.04

    "Integrate Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2 GA Rollup Updates."
    "Integrate Windows Security Updates and Hotfixes."
    "Make a ISO Image."

    Why not just make a periodic System Image instead? That way, the whole process will be much easier and it will include everything you have right now. So, may I recommend the following if interested:

    Yes, prior to the February 26.

    Windows 8.1 Update 1 Reaches RTM ? Report

    "Windows leaker WZor claims that Windows 8.1 Update 1 RTM was signed off on February 26, which means that the public release could indeed take place in early April."

    That cannot be done because the ISO will be a standard issue for all to use; therefore, it can not accommodate every individual's unique drivers needs; however, they may expand their catalog to include driver updates for many but certainly not all. Again, the best thing for you to do is create a periodic System image so "everything" is included and kept up to date. Moreover, your recovery will be quicker, you won't have to reinstall any programs, you won't have to fine-tune your settings, and you will avoid all the other headaches that come with a clean install from an ISO.

    Good luck with your decision on how to proceed from here.

    Hi mashebro,

    Do not use the internal Windows 8.1 method or you will run into real problems. Stick with Macrium Free.

    Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download

    and to restore it, do i need to make an a bootable disc from marcrium?
    Yes, I prefer to use a bootable usb recovery drive created by Macrium. You should be prompted to do so when you first open Macrium. If not, you can invoke the process manually:

    Click image for larger version

    Just go to "other tasks" and select "create rescue media" and follow the prompts. Good luck.

This one isn't major, but it sure does sound funny! On the installation, there is a window. Try closing said window and you see the following: "To install Windows, you must run Windows installation. If you cancel the installation, your computer might restart." Obvious?!
