    windows 8.1 Update 1 Pro 64bit


    Download and run Belarc Advisor.

    It will give you this info and lots of useful information about your system.

    You could start loading it into a virtual machine and the EULA page will come up and tell you what version (8.0 or 8.1).

    Usually Standard and Professional editions of Windows are the same on the installer. It's the key that you supply that determines whether you get Standard or Professional.

    The product key is not on the disk, unless you have some sort of hacked copy of Windows 8. If you do, I'd suggest not using it.

    Be the best of all... After all IT Geek am I!


    Will you can get it done by control panel.

    Control panel >> system and security >> system.

    This will allow you see the main bit.

    Cheers
