Hey guys I was wondering if I can update my windows 8 which came pre-installed to 8.1 without going to the store and waiting for it to be downloaded.
Is there any ISO online where I can readily download the image and update it? Its a HP laptop.

Windows updates stand alone will come either winth .msi or .msu extension, not ISO. You can try this link to download:
Windows Updates Downloader (WUD) Program Files
Okay! and hey my laptop came with Windows 8 Single Language 64bit. So which one do I download from here?
Windows Updates Downloader (WUD) Update Files (ULs)

I think its the Windows 8.1 Update one? but when I'm trying to download that,its downloading many files and I dont know which ones to install first. Also the windows 8.1 update from store is 3.5-4gb. How can the find the total size of this download? Here's a screenshot:

From what I read on the WUD site, this download Windows Updates, not the Windows install code/iso.
You need to install iso/dvd then you run 7 Lite ot nLite to generate an updated iso to install with.
