    Windows 8.1 "Upgrade" disc

    I was wondering if they made a Windows 8/8.1 upgrade disc available yet? Would like to put this up on my tower someday, if the cost isn't prohibitively high and the requirements are much lower. I actually have a board that supports SecureBoot.

    Hello Honeycomb,

    If you like, you could download a Windows 8.1 ISO file to make a DVD or USB with to use.

    If you wanted to update from Windows 8 to 8.1, then you could do so via the Store instead.
