Lazy Windows 8.1 Update patching

So you are like me. You wanna live on the edge and you have an MSDN subscription. As noticed by many Microsoft has released the Update to Windows 8.1 on MSDN. The updates will be released for all April 8.

Currently there are two zipfiles to download one for x86 and one for x64.

Filename
mu_windows_8.1_windows_embedded_8.1industry_update_x86_4046911.zip
mu_windows_8.1_windows_server_2012r2_windows_embedded_8.1industry_update_x64_4046913.zip

Both contains 6 MSU files which Microsoft recommends to install in a specific order.
