    How to get Windows 8.1 iso with a Single Language key?

    I only have a Windows 8 Single Language key purchased. They mostly sell that version in my country. But I need to perform a clean install of Windows 8.1. How can I do this? How to get the ISO? I can't install 8.1 PRO ISO with a generic key and they use the SL key to activate right?

    How to download the Windows 8.1 ISO

    Activate retail Windows 8.1 with Windows 8 Product key.

    You can not use the key extracted from the UEFI/BIOS firmware or a OEM key to download the Windows 8.1 ISO, you can only use the key to ACTIVATE.

    The generic keys can only be used to install Windows 8.1 & not ACTIVATE or to download the Windows 8.1 ISO .

    Correction... Single lamguage is an OEM SKU... not for purchase and not available via MSDN - You can upgrade via store though and create an ISO - I think SIW2 has an Imagex based app that can help make a bootable ISO...
