    I was about to ask the same question.

    So starting the Win8.0 D/L 1st, cancelling it & then running the 8.1 D/L (in this case, OSGS14-WindowsSetupBox-32bitand64bit-English-4141408.exe), no longer works?

    Damn it, my question answered while I was typing it!!!!!! Double damn it, because IMHO this just stupid, given that 8.1 is a FREE upgrade.

    Ah, so an 8.0 key will only let you download an 8.0 ISO. Anybody that didn't already download 8.1 from that link that only has an 8.0 key is now SOL. That's too bad. It doesn't impact me but its going to be a bummer for a lot of other forum members.

    Hopefully in the future this will change, or another option may be available to do so.

    In the mean time, folks will need to use the update from 8 to 8.1 Update route.

    WindowsSetupBox.exe is not available for download anymore. If you still had a copy, I'm not sure it would still be able to download an ISO anymore.

    The original windows8-setup.exe is refusing to work for me now. Using retail win 8.0 key, it pretends it can't connect.

    Odd, that one still works for me with a Windows 8 key from MSDN.

    Same here. I get the ol' "We can't connect right now check your internet connection and try again"
