Will there be something similar for 8.1? 

Do you mean like a MEGA update repository like what @greenhillmaniac made?  That was because updates for Windows 8 disappeared after January 2016.  From what I gather, for the same thing to be available for Windows 8.1 after January 2023, you would need to use updates fro Server 2012 R2 until October.

After that, I also gather that obtain ESU updates from Server 2012 and 2012 R2 wuld be illegal if we weren't paying the support fees.  I guess there's 0-Patch

Are all the updates of the repository free of Meltdown and Spectre? 

Do you know if it's possible to install Net Framework 4.8 on Windows 8.0 the same way as greenhillmaniac installed Powershell 5.0 on 8.0 ?

Or if it's better to integrate them on WS2012 R1 and use MICROSOFT SERVER CONVERTER 2012 to convert 2012 to Workstation?

I don't know if I can publish the link here but there is a batch script ( made by @abbodi1406 ) to install .NET Framework 4.8 packages on Windows 10 Version 1507/1511, by modifying the mum files and remove parent node using powershell.exe
this, however, allow to install the package from offline servicing only (because security catalogs integrity will prevent live online installation). It is possible to do the same on Windows 8.0 ? 

So this script will solve this other comment, right?:

The last .NET update that works with vanilla Windows 8.0 is .NET 4.6.2. Unfortunately, .NET 4.8 only installs if Server 2012 or Embedded 8 Standard parent packages are available. It is possible to edit some of the update's .mum files and slipstream them offline, but you need to do this for every possible .NET 4.8 update in the future, and I figured it would be too much of a hassle for the regular user.

And one more question about pre-EOL updates...

Unlike what greenhillmaniac does, I simply install the monthly security only updates and NEVER the rollup.  This is because I skipped the March 2018 which contained slower microcode for Spectre and Meltdown.  Also, I skipped June, July and August 2021 updates which removed the integrated Flash component.   I use Flash to run locally installed flash games like Yeti Sports, but i never use Flash online.

 

if I don't install pre-EOL updates I won't have important updates that improve DWM / DirectX / Microsoft Graphic Component & also Network connections... ?

So the way to create an ISO with all w8.0 pre-EOL updates + post-EOL updates without installing rollups containing spectre and meltdown code is:

1) Run WSUS 9.25 on 8.0 and then manually remove (if any) the rollups on download folder (>march 2018).

2) Download all pre-EOL updates of the repository and add to the folder

3) Integrate all the updates with a tool like ntlite, right?

I hope the rollups have "-UR-" in the filename when downloaded with WSUS, if not this won't be an easy process... 

Please, correct me if I'm wrong, I want to create my own updated iso without spectre and meltdown code on it :(:rolleyes:

Thanks

I love Windows 8.0 ...as much as XP, 2K3, 2K, ME, 98SE & 95 :)
