    Hi, a friend just asked me if he will get the standard retail ISO of Windows 8.1 with Update if uses his Windows 8.1 product key to start the "Upgrade with product key only".

    And I didn't know what to answer him, I'm pretty sure you get a standard image that you can use not only to upgrade but to install Windows anew doing that; but I don't know if it'll be the one with spring's update.

    Does anybody know if it is? Thanks anyway.

    The standard MS Retail ISO is a multiple-edition ISO (holds Win 8.1 aka Core and Win 8.1 Pro) whereas the one downloaded via Store will only contain the version the entered key is for, i.e. Core or Pro.

    Both versions come with Update 1 integrated.
