    After all the searching and asking here, nobody seems to be able to provide information about which updates I can integrate into Windows 8.1 Pro VLK .ISO that already has Update 1 built-in? Here is the list of Baseline updates from WHDownloader -

    I know that not ALL of them are present in official Update 1 .ISO. Could someone please let me know which Baseline updates I should integrate into .ISO that already contains Update 1? Is 1.08 the latest Toolkit version? I also found Win Toolkit 1.4.45.5. Which one is the best for update/hotfix integration?

    Windows8.1-KB2975061
    Windows8.1-KB2966870
    Windows8.1-KB2959977
    Windows8.1-KB2934018

    In that specific order integrated into install.wim. Moreover, it's advised to integrate them into boot.wim as well... so now you know. xD

    Eh? I don't know anything about instal..wim or boot.wim. I just want a regular installation that has all the latest updates, NET Framework 3.5, 4.5 + SP2, etc. Is Toolkit 1.08 still the best way to do all that? Is it the latest version? Should I maybe try Win Toolkit or maybe even nLite (if there is one for Windows 8.1 Update 1) ?

    THE BEST would of course be an existing and available ISO that already has Update 1 + all or the vast majority of post-Update 1 updates integrated... Is there such a thing?

    I personally use murphy78 iso's which come out each month and have all updates included. Always clean and reputable, He has a link on PirateBay. However, I have used WinToolkit_1.4.45.5_Portable and WHDownloader 0.1.0 to update Microsoft Windows 8.1 With Update 1 Professional VL 64 Bit United States. Using WHDownloader, I download the latest updates, run the search for superseded updates. Then using Wintoolkit, I will excluded the Additional folders update and the RTM folder inside the Baseline folder, but include all other updates. Wintoolkit allows you to tweak settings to include .Net legacy during install. Then create an ISO using Wintoolkit and use Rufus 1.4.9 Build 506 to make a bootable USB thumb drive. I have done this numerous times, installing on production machine and Virtual Machine with no problems. Good luck!

    1. If I use the Toolkit 1.09, then what do I select for regular install integration? "Install Image" or "Boot Image" ?
    2. The following were the updates that needed integration for an ISO that already contained Update 1:
    Windows8.1-KB2975061
    Windows8.1-KB2966870
    Windows8.1-KB2959977
    Windows8.1-KB2934018

    If I am to integrate them in that specific order using Toolkit 1.09, then should I somehow integrate them one by one? Toolkit just tells me to place all the updates into a specific folder, so how do I know it will use that specific order of integration???


    EDIT: NEVERMIND. WinToolkit is WAY easier to use!

    Which files do I need to integrate NET Framework 4.5.2 for Windows 8.1 Update 1? I found an AIO installer, which I opened with WinRAR, and in it there was a x64-Windows8.1-KB2934520-x64.msu update. Is that what I need? Its over 400MB in size! I take it that is due to languages? WHDownloader already had the package name, so I figured that is all I need...
