    Activate retail Windows 8.1 with Windows 8 Product key.
    Thanks! Didn't know that win 8 and 8.1 keys are tied to their versions. So it's win 8 install, then upgrade to 8.1 for me.

    Trying to download the files using upgrade assistant, but i'm gettin error that i can't use the option as my country/region is not supported. Had a look at Terms and Conditions and it seems that my country is not listed.

    Any chance to get this work if my country is not listed in terms and conditions? Using proxy maybe? Any advice?
