Wow, so nice to have a desktop as my background. I'd share but I'd violate the rules.

I am uploading now the English version , both in x86 and x64 releases, and Arabic x86.

All the files will be uploaded with the original name given from MS.

I would like to ask someone to post here a link and/or the rules for uploading to BA FTP.

I didn't upload to BA FTP for quite a while and I can't find the rules on the site.

Thank you

I already got all the ISOs so it's fine, no need for upload. I am preparing them as we speak.

If you're running Windows 8 and you don't use any of the 13 languages the preview is available in, you'll need to install using the ISO.

If you're running Windows 8 Enterprise, you'll need to install the preview using the ISO.



Source: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... review-faq

So basically you need to do a clean install in your case

I knew that but i think that just means i can't upgrade with the Store. My question is, can i use the upgrade option in the installer when i boot from the .iso .

I can't post anything MLP related, and my background is of sort.

I can't find the article right now, but I say no, you can't upgrade from the ISO either , you just have to do a clean install (at least that is what I understood )

You can never 'Upgrade' if you boot from the install disk, upgrades have to be started from inside windows

But to answer your Q, if you start the 8.1 installer from inside windows 8, it will give the option to keep user data only, any installed apps / programs will be wiped

Yes, the MS bandwidth is great, probably because of the delay of the ISO.

Not to many people know that they are released.


NOTE: That every ISO has additional Apps included

What "additional apps"?

Don't know yet.

Didn't had the time to install any of those ISOs , bat as you can see from the name, it says "WindowsBlue-ClientwithApps" .

And if you remember, the Windows 8 Developer Preview had additional Apps as well, (basically Metro).

Anyway, I am burning an ISO right now, but the installation I will do it tomorrow, cause now it's late and tomorrow I have to go to work.

I will find out tomorrow what apps MS included in the ISOs

Oh, I see, but I don't think they are "additional" apps.

So is this why there are different SHA1 values for the MSDN version and the ones found at

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... w-download

Perhaps.

Please tell me that you have the MSDN ISOs , and not the ones from the link above.

So that I can continue upload the ISOs from that link.

I never had the opportunity to contribute with any ISO to BA archive, becouse I don't have any leak sources to get them from.

And now with the release of 8.1 Preview , I was keeping an eye on MS website to see when they will post the links for the ISOs, and when I saw that the link were posted and nobody here have put them on the FTP or talk about this on the forum, I was so glad that finally I was the first one to let the community know and make those ISOs available to the FTP, but when you told me that you already had them and you were working on getting them to the FTP, before I even started to download them.... :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

P.S. Sorry for the many "and"s in the last paragraph

Just reopened that page from favourites and saw they are now available. Great! Can't wait to download and test out, looks like the ISO's allow clean install (except Windows RT), so I should be able to install in VM, or virtual partition.

Found the trial length on a different forum (quite sufficient for my use, 8.1 might end up my main OS)

OP, in the future you don't really need to quote the entire website, maybe names+hashes, but thats a really big quote

I am uploading now the last 2 ISOs.

I noticed that the 8.1 ISOs are already published on the FTP , and I compared the file sizes.

The ISOs that there are now on the FTP, are the MSDN ISOs (without any aditional Apps).

My ISOs have additional apps .

So finally I contributed to the BA's archive with something important. :D

The ISO's from the Preview website are identical to the ones from Microsoft Technet/MSDN.
It does not include additional special apps, it is just named differently.

Maybe the name implies because of the following additional apps that are included which aren't in the Windows 8 RTM:
- Alarms
- Calculator
- Food & Drink
- Health & Fitness
- Help & Tips
- Reading List
- Scan
- Sound Recorder

Even the hashes are the same:
MD5 for x64: A46318A1234A1F454E1518A2FD31651D
MD5 for x64 from preview site: A46318A1234A1F454E1518A2FD31651D

Yeah, I noticed this too. What's weird tho is that my SHA1 checks didn't match MSDN or the ones on the Preview site... but the ISOs are all fine and works. And as you pointed out, the hashes are identical between the two download sources. So there's nothing extra in either.

So sorry madalin88, you didn't get to contribute this time either :(. Unless you can upload the chk/debug versions of Win8.1, I don't have access to MSDN at the moment so I lack all access to the chk/debug materials.
