    I have started a thread on this subject after win8.1RTM using DISM, maybe you could take a look :D

    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/47509-Make-a-Activated-Windows-8-1-Pro-WMC-ISO?highlight=

    What you need to do with win8.1 Update1 is to add the msu files, I would suggest you do this step right after the wim is mounted, then do a imagecleanup(and resetbase), because after you enable feature .Net3.5, it will add a pending.xml and you won't be able to cleanup and will end up with a very large wim(4.1GB for X64).

    Tried this, but it seems the updates create a pending.xml anyway, so it doesn't work :(

    Afaik this first needs WADK installed and run from the WADK CMD.

    Easiest way would be to manually mount the WIM from there, then convert to WMC, copy files manually to the mounted Windows\system32\spp\store\2.0 folder and at least export, commit/unmount - DONE :D.

    BTW: The 'DISM and IMAGEX' section (in 'SYSTEM TOOLS' sub menu) of my JATD script offers the option to convert to ProfessionalWMC, and holds all files needed. You only have to copy the Tokens files manually before commit/unmount stage, you'll be asked previously :cool2:. Only enter index and pathes to WIM and mount folder.

    NOTE: Copy WIM manually to folder of your choice and start the process.

    LOL, haven't tried this, so you will get a over-sized wim anyway, this supports my idea that these patches wouldn't be the final release. :p

    Loudly, i need to perform multiple integrations, the Script executes mounting and un-mounting for each integration, I can do only mounting at the beginning and at the end integrations implement un-mounting?

    In case of multiple actions parts can be skipped. For Add Packages there is a batch option. Note: some Updates needs to be added alone, some can be done in batch.

    To integrate the Spring 2014 Updates after creating ProfessionalWMC WIM you can opt for the nice solution by MSMG:

    MSMG ToolKit to Convert W8.1/Srv 2012 R2 RTM/GA ISO - W8.1/Srv 2012 R2 Update 1 ISO

    Normally i use Audit mode for proper integration of Updates, as to perform this properly in an offline image, adapted scripts for each update would be needed.

    So, first I need to implement ProfessionalWMC to install.wim with JATD Script, then apply the Spring 2014 package update with MSMG ToolKit Script (option 2), then add the other implementations with JATD Script, right?
    I dont have idea about "Audit mode", is a Script too?
    Thanks for you help :)

    Yep, best is create ProWMC, activate .NET as second option, then integrate Updates (i also updated the boot.wim and the ISO files) with MSMGs script. Not sure what you need else.

    Audit Mode is a special Installation Mode in Windows Setup (can be reached by pressing Ctrl-Shift-F3 when beeing asked to enter an user name and password), this Mode is used by OEMs and similiar to prepare their Install Media.

    Loudly, I need to create Windows 8.1 Spring 2014 RTM Professional with WMC .iso, with the following characteristics (my first post in this thread):

    • Enable MS .NET Framework 3.5
    • Pre-activated (data.dat and tokens.dat files).
    • Does not ask for serial installation (EI.cfg file).
    • Make it bootable from a USB.

    About MSMGs script, fisrt option 1: Update boot WIM image, then second option 2: Update Install & Recovery WIM Image.
    In that order is correct, right?

    Did it my self this way:

    #1. Use the Create ProWMC to mount and set the ProWMC, then skip the unmount and further.

    #2. Use 'Enable .Net' and skip the mount/unmount stages, only use the integration. NOTE: Do not unmount now.

    #3. Copy the Tokens to the mounted Windows\system32\spp\store\2.0 folder.

    #4. Unmount the WIM (will commit changes and then unmount)

    #5. Copy the Windows ISO files and the new WIM to the \DVD\ subfolder of MSMGs tool.

    #6. Copy the Update files to the \Updates\x64 or the x86 subfolder matching your architecture. I renamed mine to look like 'windows8.1-kb2919442-x64.msu', not sure whether it's necessary (got the ones with SHA1 hash in the filename).

    #7. Let the tool process all wanted process and rebuild ISO at least.

    #8. Create bootable pendrive with the tool you prefer.

    HINT: In case you have the mounted folder still open in Explorer the unmount might fail to complete, the WIM will be good though, so close before unmounting :cool2:.

    In case this happens ... DON'T PANIC :D ... use the discard option of my tool to wipe the folder.
