    Hi Brink/adamf

    All I have is a windows 8 license which I tried and is ok all I wanted to know was will all the subsequent windows updates (8.1, 8.2) still be available sorry to be so thick! but I`m not as young as I used to be and things take longer to sink as you will no doubt learn in the fullness of time.

    If you like, you could install your clean Windows 8, update to Windows 8.1, then update to Windows 8.1 Update by installing all Windows Updates.

    OR

    If it's a "retail" Windows 8 license (key) and not "OEM", then you could use OPTION TWO below to download a Windows 8.1 ISO file.

    After you clean install Windows 8.1, you could then update to Windows 8.1 Update by installing all Windows Updates.
