How to install IE11 on Windows 8.0

Recommended Posts

Big thanks to @daniel_k for discovering this method.

Tools you'll need:

This tutorial applies to both AMD64 and X86.

  1. Download all 3 parts of Standard_8_64Bit_Bootable_IBW if using 64 bit, or all 2 parts if using 32 bits, and open part 1 to extract the ISO. After this you should have Standard_8_64Bit_Bootable_IBW.iso or Standard_8_32Bit_Bootable_IBW.iso
  2. Open the ISO with 7-Zip and navigate to "sources/install.wim". Right click on the install.wim and select "Open inside".
  3. Inside the install.wim, go to "Windows/servicing/Packages"
    Here's where it differs for both architectures.
    For 64 bit copy the following files into a folder in your computer:

  5. Now here's the interesting part. Open command prompt with Admin privileges and run:
    If using 64 bit:
    dism /online /add-package /packagepath:<path to folder>\Microsoft-Windows-Embedded-SKU-Foundation-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.2.9200.16384.mum

    If using 32 bit:

    dism /online /add-package /packagepath:<path to folder>\Microsoft-Windows-Embedded-SKU-Foundation-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~6.2.9200.16384.mum
  6. Reboot and install IE11 like you normally would. This time it will finish the installation and prompt you to reboot. After that, IE11 will be fully operational on your machine!

Here's some pics of the results:
