Patience is a virtue - think I'll test my virtues and not mess with this....October 17 isn't that far away. Why risk it and suffer misery?
I googled it, installed 8.1 and i have activated with my key. Thanks for the tip.
I find it stupid anyway....i mean, if i can clean install windows 8 with some default key and then activate with my upgrade key, why didn't they just make one key that works everywhere and at anytime (pre/post install)?
now on windows 8.1 pro fully activated too
If you have a legit key you are able to activate the 8.1-RTM, like the Pro. There are "rumors", that you are able to activate the WMC-Part as well, but I had no time to try it myself yet. Install and Activation-Key's are different. The Install-Key is similar to the PreView the same for everyone, but the Activation-Key is your legit Key, like from 8-Pro or 8-Pro-WMC.
Some could upgrade without loosing something and some not, but as I didn't try it yet, I can't confirm it from my side.
Even if you want to wait for the official release day, it's still handy to have the ISO's.
Installed it on my development PC without hesitation VIA upgrade and everything feels as snappy as a fresh install
I get to keep my IDE's and apps
I am also able to run 8 Metro Apps in 2 monitors at the same time which is ****ing awesome !
Windows 8.1 All the way ;D!
