I'd like to get and store copies of all regional installs if possible, if anyone out there (here) has other versions then drop me a PM and I'll stick them somewhere on t'interweb so we can recover if we need to...

I have now had several people use the image from my EN-GB Surface on non-en-gb devices and all appears to be well, only difference noticed so far is the support number stays on the english one and doesnt change regardless of language pack.

Thanks a million Trig0r!!! I need to bring my RT back to life as I installed 8.1 in German and my recvery image didn't work don't know why.

I am downloading your image now and I see it is a ISO file, should I unpack it and copy it to my USB or what?

Thank you!!!

Clarification Please

I don't want to sound like a noob here, but I was just making sure that I can use your EN-GB recovery image on my EN-US Surface RT to remove Windows 8.1 Preview. Also hoping that office will work when i get back to the start.

I havent tested it personally, I know the en-GB image works in place of the en-US image though, not sure about rolling back from 8.1 to 8.0 though, I would of thought it possible but I havent checked it.

You can install the language pack etc and get it into "proper" English ;)

EN-US Recovery Files

I used the Surface RT on display at my work to create the USB recovery drive, and was able to successfully downgrade from 8.1 Preview to stock. Trig0r, how would I go about assembling these files to share? Then I can put together a step-by-step guide for downgrading that has the potential to make a few people happy.

EN-US Recovery Drive Image Request

Any chance someone can post the EN-US version? I appreciate the EN-GB image it works wonderfully, but I'm in the US and a EN-US image would be awesome to recover back to :D. I'm surprised that Microsoft doesn't already have the recovery drive image available for download. Also the Windows RT 8.1 preview drive image is worthless. It wont activate after resetting.

    I have requested ALL other language recoveries, so far I just have my en-GB one, I have space to host them and FTP that people can upload to, guess people just dont care until they get to the point that they need it.
    Am I the only RT (ex now, got my Pro although I still have access to the RT if needed but its running 8.1 Preview now) user that thinks about stuff like this, surely not...
