    win 8.1 is only a prieview/beta version and will have to be replaced when the full version comes out on oct 17/2013
    I think kev has installed the rtm.
    The Windows 8.1 RTM leak, will not pick up the OEM manufacturer's UEFI/BIOS firmware product key.

    What "update key" as in where did you obtain that? If its been widely used and publicized you can count on Microsoft blacklisting it at some point.

    I know about the install keys, but you still have to enter your own valid key to activate don't you? The OP used the term "update key" not sure what was meant by that.

    Neither am I, but English is not his first language, so it probably means the default key to install ( as theog posted ), and it activated online using oem key in the firmware.

    If you actually activate with your legitimate key I wouldn't exactly call it boot legged, but I do get your point. It was mentioned not to post download links or product keys. Me I'm content to wait for it to show up on TechNet. Not everybody is so lucky though and some just can't wait.
