Hey all,

I'm just done ordering parts for my HTPC upgrade. My current HTPC is running on an OEM Windows 8 license I bought. Because it is an OEM license, I can't use the trick described many places online to download the Windows 8.1 ISO directly from Microsoft.

I have also been unsuccessful in finding the usual digital river links for a Windows 8.1 ISO.

The thought of installing from 8.0 media and then doing an immediate upgrade hurts my brain in its stupidity.

Can anyone recommend a good source where i can grab a clean untouched Windows 8.1 Pro x64 ISO?

Download an untouched MSDN ISO and get a properly configured ei.cfg file inserted into the ISO.

There seems to be four options. Does anyone know what "regular" vs "N" vs "VL" vs "VL N" means ?

Huh. I just read that N means it comes WITHOUT media player.
