So i started building image for installation of windows 8.1, but immediately i faced very stupid problem i dont see solution for.


Freshly installed windows 8.1 PRO, rebooted to syspreping mode  (CTRL +shift +f3), first thing i usually did is to update windows, but now it just continuously stuck on Checking for updates and that never ends..


What im missing here?

Windows Update is blocked from running in Audit Mode in Windows 8.1. This is by design. See DarienHawk67's post here:
