    I downloaded en_windows_8.1_with_update_x64_dvd_6051480.iso from GezoeSloog's collection at Cloud Mail (Windows 8.1 with Update 3) and the SVF patch for the desired language, but checking the image with DISM, I noticed it only contains two WIMs: Home and Pro SKUs in it. Does a more complete Technet/MSDN ISO exist, with the remaining SKUs, such as Home Single Language and Enterprise? I don't mind not having Volume Licencing, Bing and China WIMs.

    Just for comparision sake, I also downloaded Windows 10 Version 2004 image from his library, and it's a complete image, featuring Home, Home Single Language, Education, Pro, Pro Education and Pro for Workstations WIMs. Thus, I'm baffled why the Windows 8.1 image is not complete. If such multi ISO does indeed not exist, what's the best way to create a comprehensive ISO like the Windows 10 one? From ESDs? Thanks in advance.

    No, Windows 8 Multiple Editions only contains Core and Pro.

    WIndows 10 Consumer & Business ISOs are full AiO since 1803 (iirc).

    Download the Multiple Editions ISO, the Enterprise ISO and the CSL ISO.

    To create a Core, Pro, Enterprise & CSL 8.1 ISO. export the Enterprise & CSL indexes to the Multiple Editions install.wim, replace the original wim with the modified one and you have a core, pro, enterprise & CSL ISO.

    I'm a bit confused, shall I download the Brazilian Portuguese ISOs? Can't I create them from the English Multi ISO + SVF patch?

    Isn't that the same? Used method doesn't matter.

    If you already have all the needed ISOs, skip the download part.

    LOL, how didn't I think about using the Multi pt-br as the ISO to create ther other images, thank you very much for the help! But doesn't the CSL have an official name, or this SKU only had an official name in ESD format? Now that I have all images, is there any noob guide to learn how to combine various SKUs into one single image? Again, thank your for the patience, this was the only image missing in my collection.

    Extract the install.wim files, use this command (example) to export all indexes to one new install.wim:
    Code:
    dism /Export-Image /SourceImageFile:"x:\install.wim" /ALL /DestinationImageFile:"y:\install.wim" /Compress:max /checkintegrity
