As far as I know, Windows 8/8.1 and its server counterpart have Windows 7/Server 2008 SKUs. Is there a way to install and use them?.

Bonus: Windows 8/8.1 has a "repair content pack", detected on Windows Update. It is possible to use DISM to create such images, but it is however very difficult to do
