    Okay. There is possibly a way to install 8.1 directly.

    There are instructions how to get a 8.1 ISO file and then I believe you use a generic key to install and then you enter your key and it will be activated. If you have 8.0 activated you should be able to read your key with a tool. I haven't tried that but I would advise you to read that thread and ask there if you can do it that way.

    The generic keys are there.
