    Windows 8.1 single language pack upgrade


    I have a PC with Windows 8.1 single language pack(OEM DVD) and I need to get a new language pack.

    But since the OS being single language pack, I am not able to download another language pack,

    and so I thought I would get a 8.1 Pro or a normal NOT single language pack and do an upgrade.
    (a wee bit sideways though )

    So here is the Q.

    If I get myself a 8.1 pro(non-single language), will I be able to upgrade my OS to a normal 8.1 pro?

    Need to be typing in both Korean and English but I'm stuck with only English...

    You should be able to upgrade if you have bought the 8.1 Pro key. I've not tried it as I never had single language but MS says you can.

    Add features: FAQ - Windows Help

    Can I add features to my Single Language edition of Windows?Yes. If you bought the Windows 8.1 Pro Pack or Windows 8 Pro Pack, you should be able to install it and activate Windows successfully.
