    I highly doubt it is available on TechNet.

    The leaked version isn't even working. Followed all the steps needed to prepare the upgrade USB and when done, the RT just errors out when double-clicking setup.exe "wsdcore.dll is not for this version of Windows or contains an error. Right.

    8.1 RTM for Surface RT works great and lots of people have it installed successfully. "The leaked version isn't even working" is certainly not correct.

    You did the dism steps for the boot.wim and install.wim? Assuming you got the ISO with the drivers folder. Yes?

    I didn't do those steps 'cause I downloaded the ISO that already has the drivers in it.

    I've helped a number of other people getting this installed and I have no problem helping you. The steps in the link above are thorough. If you still get an error then it may be your ISO is corrupted or your current RT 8.0 has issues. I might try doing a refresh of the Surface with 8.0 and then do the upgrade next if you believe the iso is good. Let me know if you want to discuss this in pm.

    I just did the upgrade last night from Preview to 8.1 RTM and there's nothing special with the steps if you have the ISO with drivers.

    The ISO is good. It could be that my RT 8.0 has issues but I would find that very strange as I have the RT for about 3 weeks now (and I bought it new in store). Maybe I'll try a fresh install of 8.0

    still curious about your particular error in wsdcore.dll.
    the iso with drivers correctly injected should be:
    size on disk: 2.49 GB (2,679,341,056 bytes)
    (note that this assumes that drivers have been correctly injected in both Index:1 and Index:2 of the boot.wim in addition to the install.wim (there are two partitions in there). )
    Unfortunately I cannot find any wsdcore.dll file in the iso nor in the install.wim. There is however a wdscore.dll file. Did you mean to type that?
    Here is a link to that file from a working iso. Please check if it matches the one in your iso. Please PM me if you decide to try another copy of an iso with drivers injected.

    I tried this last night on my UK RT. I got the stage of being offered "keep files etc." or "keep nothing". No option to "keep all".

    I saw similar the other day when trying to apply the wrong language ISO from MSDN for W8.1 to my desktop - English not English-UK. Could the same thing be happening on my RT? I.e. language on my RT and that of the ISO are mismatched, albeit versions of English?

    There is no option to keep "all" as it was clearly stated that some apps have to be reinstalled.

    Yeah, I meant the wdscore.dll file in the sources folder of the extracted ISO, I guess. I'll try your version of the file, maybe that'll solve the problem.

    Edit: I've replaced it with your copy of the file but now setup.exe is complaining about some other DLL file :( (unattend.dll)

    Where is that stated? On the link to the instructions, the user was able to keep his apps. When I upgraded two desktops from 8.0 to 8.1 RTM I was presented three options: keep all, keep folders/settings, keep nothing.

    On my RT from 8.0 to 8.1 I am just offered the latter two. I suspect we are talking at cross purposes as you upgraded from 8.1 preview to RTM. I am starting at 8.0.

    So ... anyone who has actually done the 8.0 to 8.1 RTM upgrade, did you see three "keep" options, or just the two I am seeing?

    Thanks.
