Is this possible ?? I mean offline or somehow ??
if its possible its will take same time
its better just download ur edition from ms or original iso somewhere
I agree but is it possible somehow ?
Yes by adding all the updates from Winows 8 to windows 8.1 newest version. Good luck
You have any list or any download link please ?
No you can't. 8.1 isn't just another update; it is a new OS itself.
mb if u installed it on vmware apply the update/s / restart and do that for all the updates
do cleanup with dism
then capture it its looks possible but its just a hassle
I wanted to do that exactly but turns out sysprep doesn't work on upgraded installations.
did u do the dism /clean-up ?
Yes, i did clean-up and then tried sysprep.
mb try cleanup after each big update like 8.1 and update 1
I directly updated to "8.1 with update" from store.
btw sysperp is optional in windows 8 cos its uni drivers
it can auto fix the drivers database no need to sysperp
There is a very old thread for Windows 7 but it should work for Windows 8.x variants (although not an officially supported scenario by M$)
Try deleting the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\Upgrade" and then re-run sysprep again.
Will this work ?
I install Windows 8 from my install.wim which I have, upgrade it from the store. After it upgrades and restarts into OOBE, I shutdown manually. I then boot into WinPE and capture the image.
Will the image taken with above process work ?
P.S - I want this new wim image to boot into OOBE whenever its used.
yea it should capture the image fine and work
if not its must be the winpe version, ver 5.0 should be fine
if its not sysperp the oobe screen wont appear but
its possible to create users via pc settings/accounts in metro easily
It might work, but I don't recommend it especially when you are going to deploy the image onto another PC (regardless of physical or virtual).
I guess running sysprep and generalizing the image is still the right way even when you use an upgraded installtion as your base image, although not an officially supported scenario.
I think you need to run sysprep anyway if you want the image to go into OOBE when it boots up for the first time.
I am gonna delete the registry key and try to make sysprep work. I hope it works.
Right now, its downloading Win 8.1 with update from store, will update how it goes.
UPDATE: So, this worked for me and I was able to run sysprep
