Ok people,
just a little tip to get you to 8.1 a bit quicker after a factory restore back to W8.

You do not need the Net framework updates/browser choice or malicious software removal tools KBxxxxx's,
about 25 approx.

Before upgrade to Windows 8.1 from the Windows Store, you do not need to install all Windows 8 updates from Windows Update. You only need to install KB2871389 update, then you’ll be able to install the Windows 8.1 update via the Windows Store. But if you've opened the Windows Store and you don't see the Windows 8.1 update, then you will need to also install KB2917499 update.

Take a look at this post: How to if you have Windows 8.1 update 1 installed
