    Hi Brink

    I'm trying to download the 8.1 update from the UK link at the start of this thread. Everything went OK but the file size of the downloaded Windows 8.1 file is 3,218,304kb but the file size of the downloaded Windows 8 is exactly the same. This seems strange to me, is there any way to tell what version of the Windows iso I have?

    Hi Bazzer:
    You could 'mount' the iso, right click on the setup.exe and choose 'properties', details tab and check the file version.

    Hi Edwin,

    Thanks for that, the file version of the setup.exe is 6.3.9600.16384, do you know if that's the 8.1 iso?

    I just had another go at downloading the 8.1 ISO. I haven't tried an install with it but looking at the files, everything is dated 2013. No update 1 as far as I can tell. I'm not sure I'm going to bother doing an install to confirm. I think Brinks already done that.

    That may have stayed the same. Not every file will be new.

    Upgrade from 8 to 8.1, is clean install possible?


    I am running Windows 8 64 bit as a clean install from an ISO disc (plus Windows Media Player which subsequently as an upgrade which I downloaded for free in the limited time it was on offer). Orinianlly the PC ran Win 7 64 bit.
    When my PC keeps asking me if I want to upgrade to 8.1, can I get this as a download to create an ISO disc and create a clean install?
    The PC in question used your tutorial to installl Windows 8 as a clean install and when installing move the profiles to another hard drive as the boot C drive is an SSD.

    I ask this as another PC conventially setup with just a C drive running Windows 8 32 bit when I upgraded this to 8.1 32 bit it just went off and installled it

    Thanks

    Hello Steve,

    If you like, you could download a Windows 8.1 ISO using your retail Windows 8 product key (not the WMC key) in OPTION ONE, and be able to clean install with it.

    The Windows 8.1 Update ISO is not available for download yet.

    Hope this helps,

    A few questions. I bought 8 Pro System Builder edition and upgraded to 8.1 via the Store then on to 8.1 Update 1. I understand that I cannot fresh install 8.1 with my 8 product key.

    1. Will the 8.1 ISO work as a repair disk?

    2. Is it legal for me to install my original 8 on another partition so to dual boot with 8.1? So often I want to help those with 8 problems and would like it to reference with.
