    So, instead, allow Windows 8 to install all of its updates automatically through Windows update. After 8 is fully updated, you should then be able to proceed with upgrading to 8.1, and those updates should make the 8.1 upgrade appear in the store, or via windows update. The link and downloads I supplied seem to be targeted at a pre-existing 8.1 installation, and I apologize, for in my haste to help, I didn't put 2 and 2 together until now.

    Allow Win 8 to update completely. Then upgrade to 8.1. Use your product key when prompted for activation.
    no problem buddy

    most probably i will get image file,
    updating through internet will take lot of time for me
    i have got 2MBps speed connection

    You might have core single language. Not the same as core. You would need the right edition iso file.

    RTM (Release To Manufacturers) and build number have no relationship as such... build is just a subset of the edition of Windows..the final build gets released as RTM.

    Windows 8.0 RTM build is 9200 - Windows 8.1 RTM build is 9600.
