    You might be able to get it to install Pro as above. If you do as above, then try running reset from within win8.0 /index 1 might force the reset to use Pro.

    Guys
    You done it!!!!!!!
    See the OS version and the partitions.
    The unallocated partition is the 8.1 created partition which I deleted. The partitions on the left of the OS are newly created by installing the Pro version.
    So, a million thanks.

    Yes I did it exactly as you suggested and with the USB.
    And it is activated.
    You have done a brilliant job.
    I might tidy up the unallocated partition at some stage and could also check what the recovery option is as there seems to be two of them now.
    In the meantime I'm over the moon with where things are now and can install the necessary programs.

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).
