    Can anyone post all the steps I have to do to get windows 8.1 running + activated on my pc without buying it? Please? There is no guide about this anywhere on the internet.
    :confused:

    Welcome to MDL. Your last sentence is 100% false. Start reading the sticky section. If it hurts you to read, sorry, but the forum doesn't need (or want, or permit) the same question and same answer posted 10,000 times.

    Same question as you have asked was posted again just yesterday. This post.

    As for there being 'no guide about this anywhere on the internet' - well, you did actually search!? See Google link in answers to linked post.

    What do you mean by it's not an ISO!? If you download from either Murphy's or PD's threads it/they will be an ISO (.iso file).

    Code:

    Or:
    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/53564-murphy78-s-Windows-8-1-Server-2012r2-with-Update-en-US-MSDN-iso-files
    Once you have your ISO downloaded refer to the steps in my previous post.

    I understood, you downloaded .svf files instead of iso, right?

    Read the threads carefully and then download, no hurry.

    Looks like someone is toying with MDL or setting MDL up for a DMCA take down. If not, then a new sticky is needed:

    Newbies - You Want It - We Have It - Here It Is

    They claim to have searched for hours and found nothing. They claim DVD images aren't in ISO format. Perhaps it's my natural suspicion of earth men, but something doesn't seem right. Sure hope I'm wrong.

    Send me an email of the version of Windows you wish to install.

    I will d/l it, install it on your computer, be sure it is activated, give you a free copy of any Office version you desire, clean your monitor screen, and leave $656.92 in US $$s on your keyboard when I leave.
