    Hello, I've made my AIO with the core, pro, wmc and enterprise x86 & x64 versions of windows 8.1, now I want to ad some features like allowing upgrade on 64 bits and integrating dart to the installation so we won't have to use a disk to repair Windows.

    The DaRT thing I see it far because probably MS will launch a new DaRT version but the updrading thing is the most difficult and I haven't had luck with the tutorials.

    Would you please help me with this feature for may AIO?

    My thoughts .. Be specific with links to tutorials you are having difficulty with as well as the specific steps .. If you can't post links because of your post count use hxxp instead of http in the address

    That was for windows 7 but a friend told me that in Windows 8 it is different and also, there was a post with a batch file to make the AIO but the weight wasn't the correct because it made 2 install.wim in stead of 1 and upgrading wasn't working.

    Note that Dart 8.0 SP1 is for Windows 8.0
    It's not for Windows 8.1
    We have to wait for DaRT 8.1 to have support for Windows 8.1

    There's not really any good way to enable x64 upgrades on a windows install disc. There are ways to do it, but most involve hex editing and /installfrom commands.
    Combine that with all the frustrations you will have with bcdedit and different boot supports and efi modes, and you will come to the same conclusion that I do:
    Use x86 aio versions for x86 only and x64 aio versions for x64 only.

    That is the idea. (the challenge)

    The Dart as we said, we have to wait for it :)
