    How to make Universal Windows 8.1 installation DVD or USB

    Welcome to the forum, I don't think the same applies to W8.1 anyway, you can make an all in one installer, but you need the key to complete the install, which will just install that version anyway. We just did something like that here...

    Verify?

    OK, yeah if it's still letting you in, might as well just wait. You're welcome.

    Verify?

    That looks like they have put you in limbo to me, I haven't had that happen but from reading your last pic it looks like they are making you wait before accepting your new info. Didn't you say you got that from your Dad? I wonder if that's his number? You can cancel that request at the...

    Verify?

    I'm not sure why that number is there then, I posted a tutorial for you, http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/37069-microsoft-account-verify-windows-8-1-a.html You can do it by text, phone call, email, just pick one and let them know where to send the code. It was probably triggered by...

    Verify?

    It just wants to verify your Microsoft account, is that the last 2 numbers of your cell phone number? I use the authenticator app myself but it doesn't matter how you do it, it's like a second security step to verify you are actually you...

    Windows 8 unlock...

    There is no ei.cfg in W8, even adding one like mentioned in that link, doesn't do anything. It tries to bypass it but it gives an error. That's a neat tool but even making an AIO ISO a few times, I can't get past this screen, So even though the ISO has all the versions, you still need...

    Dead links?

    Welcome to the forum, That link goes to a retired tutorial, I'm not sure why though. I'll ask the author to have a look at your post.

    SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    Just download the ISO file, you don't need to create a USB with it or anything else, once you have that file you can just right click on it and select mount,

    SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    It must because of the recovery drive you created, not sure, but I would just download an ISO myself, http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/18309-windows-8-windows-8-1-iso-download-create.html And about the word 'file', the answer is no, you can see the path in this screenshot I highlighted it...

    Solved Need win8 long enough to install win10 - can't find my key

    I'm not sure why you think you can't upgrade directly to windows 10 and keep your settings (Those that do carry over) and programs, it can be done. Windows 10 - Upgrade Installation - Windows 10 Forums You are doing things in a very convoluted method to get to an outcome that you can get by...

    Solved Need win8 long enough to install win10 - can't find my key

    I'm not sure what you mean by that, but I believe you may be misinformed. You can still upgrade, the limitations are only for versions that aren't current, like 7 W/O SP1 or W8, and then only that you cannot upgrade using windows update. I used my W8 key on a W8.1 install and it...

    That one is also targeted at W7 without SP1, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3163589 Outdated versions, so the offer is to update to SP1 or 8.1 or learn about W10. The other one will let you select do not notify me again, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3173040 Also...
