Just one more thing to note: You can skip creating an ISO image. Create an active primary partition on the USB device (has to be FAT32 in case you'd like to use UEFI), copy all the files, modify them as needed, install the bootmanager (bootsect /nt60 drive:) and use it straight away. No need for the extra steps.

Yes, that would be best. Just keep in mind that this will add up as well, e.g. waiting 100 times for 5 minutes.

Check my code above. It will check the last time the local file has been modified. If the download fails (call to copy()) the file won't be touched/modified. What you're suggesting now would essentially my alternative idea above. Just keep in mind that you might get stuck in an endless loop if for some reason the file will never be able to be written.

How about parallelizing it then? You could as well store some pointer or index to the latest file you could retrieve last attempt. Just get a bit creative here. This way you don't have to recheck all files every time; just reset the index once everything is done or so.

My first approach won't use any timeout. It will try to download all outdated files at once. 5 minutes later you retry, only downloading the files that failed the first attempt. There is only some waiting between attempts downloading everything.

Of course, I think that page (as well as the redirect) are just entry points for the WPI anyway.

With IIS you might be able to use Microsoft's installer to Setup everything: php.iis.net

comment Windows 8.1 printer changes - some printers not working after upgrade. Why?
There obviously have been some driver changes. While I'm not sure this affects printers as well, I've had problems with Cisco's AnyConnect Client, which includes a virtual network adapter. For it to work under Windows 8.1 it has to support different power states/energy saving messages, which it didn't (and this caused problems as Windows waited for answers it never received).

comment What are the Compile time considerations to reduce the size of binary on Linux?
Yes, but the available options depend on the Compiler being used. For example you can optimize for speed or for size and you can determine whether you'd like to statically or dynamically link dependencies.

comment What are the Compile time considerations to reduce the size of binary on Linux?
If possible add the compiler (as well as the line used to compile). Just keep in mind that most compile time switches (other than optimization) will just move the code, e.g. from the binary to a dependency.
