Just a quick question, and I hope it doesn't sound daft. There are Windows 8.1 images available on my subscription which I'd like to fire up in VMware. Are these images the same as what will be the final release? Also is this the 'entire' product, in other words do I need to install Windows 8 and then 8.1 over that? Below is what I'm seeing:


Windows 8.1 (multiple editions) (x64) - DVD (English-United Kingdom)

Yes, it's the full version that will also be released to retail on the 18th. To get a smaller download find the Windows 8 (x64) ISO, that is also Pro if you use the proper key.
