    I got the same thing at first: Click image for larger version

    But I clicked on the Activate tab here:
    Click image for larger version

    And I entered my Windows 8 Pro key and it worked.

    Windows 8.1 (multiple editions) (x86) - DVD (English)


    OEM keys work with multiple edition iso, however Microsoft has yet to provide the 8.1 iso.
    is that any good if you don't have an msdn subscription?

    Dearie me. MS had better get themselves figured out fast, or things will keep slipping away from them. It is another symptom of the difficulties they have.

    Those are already up on TechNet but they are dated 9/9/2013, they are the RTM versions. They won't accept a Windows 8 key for installation, only for activation. I haven't tried using an OEM key, only Retail. There are new Enterprise and VL license editions dated 10/17/2013, but that is only because you can't update those versions through the store. You have to have the install media to actually install final release version.

    It looks like the final (GA) version was finished on 30/9/13.

    I don't know how to d/l a different language iso, it keeps insisting on en-gb. Changing locale settings doesn't seem to help.

    What is everyone else getting?
