    Hello Mike/Steve, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you have a "retail" Windows 8 key, then you can use OPTION TWO in the tutorial on the first page to download an ISO file for it.

    Windows 8.1


    Noo.. turns out I was using an OEM version. I'm using Windows 8.1 right now and all of my laptop's in-built windows metro apps(including 'settings') are broken(splash screen shows for a short time and minimizes itself), so I'm trying to reset windows. Is there ANY way I can get an iso file on an OEM Windows 8? Big thanks for your awesome tutorials by the way.

    Hello stepoutside, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Since this is an OEM computer that came with Windows 8 or 8.1 preinstalled, you should be able to do a factory restore.

    What brand and model is the laptop? I may be able to help find the instructions on how to do so if needed.

    I'm using a hansung bossmonster lv.83 gaming notebook, which I don't think many people will know about. I searched for help in the manuals and the website, and it seems like there's no way to "refresh" windows 8.1 without losing anything (I read your other article about this matter). I just think I'll do a complete reinstall after a backup sometime later. Thanks for your support anyways.

    Hi

    I am having some problems downloading the Windows 8 installation. Using Windows 7 PRO.
    The download completes and verifies ok but when it reaches almost 100% installing files I get an error (unspecified).
    I have created am ISO and tried installing Windows 8 via a USB, as per your tutorial, however I get an error 'install.wim not found'.
    After some research I learned that this is the actual installation file.
    Any sugestions?
    Cheers,
    John

    Hello John, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Did you download the ISO and create a bootable USB with it before trying to install from the USB?

    If not, then that usually works best to do a clean install at boot with. Since you had Windows 7 on the computer, it would probably be best to install Windows 8 without using UEFI.

    MS not letting me download 8.1U ISO file

    MS won't let me download the 8.1Update ISO because I'm on Vista. I can't ignore it (or at least I don't know how).
    I have an unused Win8.1 license and am on a 32 bit Vista desktop (Dell Inspiron). I sure would like to go directly to 8.1U. Any ideas or am I hosed?
    TIA, Dick

    Hello desertdad,

    Do you have a friend with a qualifying Windows installed that you could download the ISO from instead?
