    It is not recommended to install. It is no official version. Why don't you use legit ISOs?
    To check the hashes IS the method!

    The OEM key doesn't make any ISO legit.You have to buy an original one from MS.

    AFAIK they haven't put up direct links to the Win81 w/update in download format yet.
    I'm sure they will soon, but this guy probably has the pre-update download GA version.
    Still, there are plenty of reputable MSDN torrents out there.
    Heck we even got a sticky for them.
    Why risk it?

    from my understanding as long as you have legit product keys, the copy of your windows is genuine.

    you can show your COA if microsoft ask for the authenticity.

    mark376 only need win 8.1 u1 MSDN iso and he can download it here. murphy78 already share it.
