    Update from Windows 8.1 Preview to Windows 8.1 - Microsoft Windows Help

    "If you installed Windows 8.1 Preview by booting from ISO media, you can update to the final version of Windows 8.1 Pro using the Windows Store, but your system won't activate until you buy a Windows 8.1 license and product key."

    If your PC was previously running Windows 8, then that Windows 8.0 key works as well after installing 8.1 Preview from ISO and upgrading to 8.1 Final.

    It's a free upgrade from Windows 8.0. You have to have a legally activated Windows 8.0 to get it for free. If you go from the preview to the final you have to supply a product key to prove you bought 8.0. It's not free, free.
