    I am having to replace my motherboard and it will be here Monday (tomorrow) Call this a bad weekend or something for me but for the life me I cannot wrap my brain on which ISO I need.

    I bought the discounted version for W8 when it was offered by MS. Upgraded to win 8.1 ( clean install) Upgraded to the "preview" release for spring.

    Anyhow since I am replacing the motherboard, same chipset, mostly, I figured this would be a great time to re-install windows and get a clean install once again.

    I can't quite figure out if there is already or will be a Win 8.1 update ISO, or if the Win 8.1 ("preview") update is the same that will be release on Tuesday.

    Any guidance would be helpful. Not sure why I am having a hard time wrapping my brain around which ISO to use this time.

    not sure which material you used to wrap you brain or your head but I recommend to unwrap until your eyes can see this thread: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...ws-8-1-Server-2012r2-with-Update-MSDN-Magnets
    Then you can choose upon your needs whatever available at this moment in terms of latest windows version including the spring updates :D
