Request: Surface RT restore image US/ES/FR

I am looking for a restore image from Surface RT with the US/ES/FR languages, i.e. a Surface RT purchased in the United States.

I have the restore image from a brittish Surface RT (GB/FR/DE) and a scandinavian Surface RT (SE/NO/DK/FI) if someone would have any use for one of those.

There has been some discussions that the restore images are not transferable between units due to BitLocker or UUID, but I had no issues in applying the GB/FR/DE restore image found on the internet to my Surface RT purchased in scandinavia, originally with the SE/NO/DK/FI version. To make sure that BitLocker would not be an issue I did a clean in diskpart before starting the restore so that no old partition data would prevent the restore.

Thank you for your assistance.

May I ask why are you requesting for someone else's image and license?
The reason I am asking for a restore image is that I want to run my Surface with the en-US version of Windows due to compability and troubleshooting reasons. All my other Windows hardware are running plain MSDN/Technet versions in en-US of Windows 8/Server 2012 that I have installed myself from scratch since I don't like the preinstalled ad/crap/trialware filled localized OEM versions that acompany hardware purchased from major vendors today (HP, Sony, Asus).

Since Windows RT is not available on MSDN/Technet I have no other means of converting my scandinavian bought Surface RT to en-US apart from asking for someone elses restore image. Regarding the license, well since a Surface RT restore image is only installable on a Surface RT, which I have bought and own, I don't really see this as a major breach of the license terms. I have paid for my use of the license of Windows RT. Also, slmgr gives me the same Activation ID and Application ID both with the SE/NO/DK/FI version that came preinstalled and the GB/FR/DE version I downloaded off the net, so it would seem as the license is in the hardware, not the actual restore image.

XDA forums has info and files on this
No, those links are unfortunately dead. I am trying to get in touch with the users in those threads but due to XDA's >10 post limit I cannot post in the relevant threads and no users seems to reply to private messages.
