    First one seems to be a ProWMC one (this isn´t meant as a fresh install by MS, but as an upgrade from Pro), second seems to include an activator. That means both have been altered, so hashes can´t match the ones on MSDN.

    Hi, well, about your confusion, md5/4 sha-1 etc... are all hashes and they are used to check files, to make sure they are not corrupted. One file has one hash, and only one hash correspond to this file, i mean, you can't find to different data with the same hashes (except some extremly rare cases...). Some hashes are more secured, for instance sha-1 is more secured (more sure actually) than a MD5 since the first is 160 bit and MD5 is 128.

    I've had to remove the torrents you linked to as one of them contained either a hacktivator or MAK key. Neither are safe as they'll likely be blocked by Microsoft in the next few months, so you'd be better off sticking with pure Windows 8 Pro and activating it with a KMS activator.

    en_windows_8_x64_dvd_915440.iso does not contain the term VL (volume licence) see post #3
    Only VL versions can be activated by KMS.....T

    Nope, Pro Retail can also be activated via KMS, if GVLK is installed before.

    but in torrent there is kms activator and also the instructions of activation. there are 33 response to torrent and 80% response are possitive so i think it is valid torrent with valid activations method.
