    even Microsoft Bangalore failed to help me on that; they confirmed my product key is okay; but when I sent the setuperr.log file to them which fails on conx, they indicated that the Microsoft server is probably blocked by ISP (it was a crap explanation);

    so I finally got the iso from net; try google murphy71 and you will get it

    best of luck

    Probably the screen name for someone that uploaded the ISO to a web site?

    I don't know what that is either. 71 as in 1971? Are you sure that is the right year? Bit like guessing the vintage of a wine. Isn't there a Murphy's beer or alcoholic drink of some kind?

    I performed the 8.1 upgrade through the Store, like they want you to, and believe it or not, everything went just fine, on both of our machines. The problem I'm having now is, during the upgrade, it changed my product keys. Added 1 character to the beginning, and dropped 1 in the third grouping. So now I have two different product keys for each installation. But when I go to download the 8.1 ISO file (just in case I need to do a clean install, in the future), NONE of the keys will work to get it downloading. Anybody else experience this one? Win 8.1 is activated in both cases, the keys just won't work for the download.

    Curious, are you OEM or retail?

    Your not by chance looking at the product ID shown on the system screen? The Product ID shown on that screen is not the Product code used for the install. If that is not the case, what are you using to view the product code? Your original Windows 8 keys should work as long as they are not OEM keys, OEM keys are rejected for this download.
