    Hello guys, I was wanting to make an image of windows 8.1 with the latest updates and I wonder if using sysprep, all updates I made are reset .. having seen the settings back to the beginning, I got this doubt. .. can anyone tell me if the updates resetam too? or they remain installed?

    Thanks...

    As long as you don't resetbase the Updates you will still be able to uninstall them :cool2:.

    No problems to update Win 8 in Audit-Mode but Win 8.1 will refuse the use of Windows Update (will circle infinitely) in temporary admin account.

    I face the same issue.:confused:

    I have Windows 8.1 updated to 12-Aug-2014, When I Install it I receive the NEXT updates,:)
    But if i try to Install and enter Audit Mode from the early beginning, customize, add some programs, etc.., then sysprep,
    I get (update 1) and others:

    which is already installed:

    I didn't do any dism cleaning !

    I also found a similar or same issue here:
    forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/56709-Windows-8-1-doesn-t-detect-previous-Hotfix-installations

    BTW the rule:
    "To be able to post links or images your post count must be 20 or greater" is gone.

    some times there are multiple installs by the same KB#. very common, just keep installing.

    I have Windows 8.1 with update, updated to August 2014, how can I receive already installed updates with size of ~1.5 GB:eek: ? it's not normal.
    And as i said before, it didn't happen on non-syspreped system.

    Unfortunately sometimes WU isn't very clear with this. Had it several times now that WU was showing a bigger Update but only re-installs several MB of missing resources. You can only notice when running the updates and check the actual size of the download :cool2:.

    I think the real key to this problem is: "If you want to enter Audit mode (mainly to use the copyprofile feature, that saves the built-in Administrator settings to the new account created during setup) make it after installing Windows Updates."

    BTW, is there is any limit to the times one can make sysprep for windows 8.1, and what happens after ?
    Well, they are not kidding this time, I checked the size of C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder, and its big.
