    Hello, I don't know what RTM means, I need to download the ISO for the exact same Windows 8 that my laptop came with. This is Windows 8 x64 Home/Core/Basic/Non Pro/Noob whatever is called (cause I got tired of finding out what the name is).

    So I found this
    29322-The-Official-Windows-8-Repository

    so which one corresponds to 'Windows 8' whereas that is not Pro, Enterprise, RT but the home version (thanks wiki for making it clearlier than MS what editions there are)

    I even tried Win8 setup from MS using a retail key from there to get an ISO:
    70-windows-8-direct-download-links

    It tells me 'cannot connect, try your connection' lawl after the key passed authentication so FAIL

    So which one is the core Win 8 from your repositionary thread?

    That would be the Core Version! You normally should be able to use the RTM and it will automatically install the right version depending on your Product Key which is in the BIOS of your laptop. Maybe you'll need the Brand specific OEM Version, not sure about that and a test will show. Just try the RTM which has both: Core and Pro.

    ^Thank you! Now that I have the Win 8 iso, I need to make a bootable DVD. Would a DVD+RW be enough to do it? I heard something needs to be done to boot from UEFI, if that's needed cause I will need to create partitions for my SSD and HDD.
