    I am from italy, I see the update in the store (I use a local account, so it's not needed a Microsoft account), it says it's 3.62 gb... but can I download it and install later? or I have to do everything without interruptions??

    Win 8.1 Pro


    Hi just updated to 8.1 without a problem and it was quick. Checked the drive afterwards and it is showing windows old folder. Disk clean up is showing 4.5 gig of win 8 can be cleaned.

    Then checked win update and there are 5 updates to download. Bing as an optional one and one is the browser choice update.

    @ Wds, andyparks, krappo, prestwich1, gasdel, burtie, and anyone else who has upgraded via the Store.

    Thanks for posting your results. I gotta go to work. When I return I'll upgrade if all goes well for you. Much rather have ISO, but it seems it's going well. Good luck!

    BTW, Welcome to Windows EightForums, prestwich1 and gasdel. It's good to have you aboard.

Has anyone upgraded Windows from XP to 8.1?
Just a curious thought, and I am unsure if it is possible, but has anyone had an installation of Windows Xp and Upgraded to Vista, then 7, then 8, and finally 8.1? Or is that not even possible. I am assuming not as the hardware has changed a bunch from 2001 to 2014 (Now).

Upgraded to Windows 8, insane RAM cache.
So, I recently upgraded to Windows 8. And I noticed I started having some issues with performance in games (stuttering, etc).
