    I have found this to be the better option. It will of course drop all of your installed programs, but give a totally clean and crap-ware-free PC.

    If it came with 8.0 , your laptop will have the key embedded in the firmware. It should be automatically detected by the 8.1 installation media. However, it is wise to find out and keep a note of the key. Several free programs will get it for you.

    63 is a lucky number (63rd hexagram of the I-Ching is good). Means you'll soon be showered with good luck!

    Disconnect from the Internet, and then connect! It will work.. Had happened to me once!
