    Possible to Slipstream Windows 8.1 Update 1 into Windows 8

    I'm getting ready to re-install Windows 8 on a laptop. I have a Windows 8 OEM disc that I'd like to slipstream Windows 8.1 Update 1 into so I don't have to spend extra time downloading Win8 updates before having to download Windows 8.1 and then all those updates. I'd like to be able to just install Windows 8.1 with all the current updates included. Is there any way of doing this?

    No, can't do it. You could slipstream it into to Windows 8.1 but not Windows 8 as update 1 requires a Windows 8.1 base.
