I need to repair my Windows 8.1 x64 installation. For that, I need an untouched ISO of Win 8.1 x64. Microsoft.com allows you to download images from here.

What is the architecture? Is it x64 or x32 bit?

I need a Windows 8.1 x64 Pro image. Where can I download that from?

Edit:

I have already read this tutorial. But it assumes that your computer can boot up, which my PC is not able to.


Edit:

I solved this.

Likely you will choose the "Windows 8.1" choice (the one without any extra letters after the name and version number). Since there is no "x64" or "Pro" choice, you will get those choices later in the process.

x64 is 64-bit. x86 is 32-bit.
