    Offline updating to Windows 8.1


    I repair people's computers, and sometimes I need to update them from 8 to 8.1. I hate downloading 3.6GB every time though. Is it possible to make an update disc, or something similar?

    Sort of. Isn't that tied to the product key you use? I want to be able to run an update disc on multiple computers, including OEM installs.

    If the PC came with Windows 8 already installed, it's anchored in the BIOS and the install media will use that key.
