    Major update to windows 8.1


    Hi

    I would like to know the best way to download the new major update when it arrives as I have no copy of 8.1 Pro and want to rectify this at the next major update as reading between the lines on the forum this will be possible, I hope.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Did you upgrade from 8 to 8 Pro using the Pro Pack ?

    Your specs say you have 8.1 Pro, you say you don't have 8.1. Which is it?

    Seeing as how the updates will be applied through Windows Update/Control Panel, (in all likelihood), it's probably best to clean up your system and create a system image after the updates are in place.
    That's what I'm anticipating, unless some other alternative jumps out in front of me at the time.

    Hi

    My laptop shipped with windows 7 and I purchased window 8 Pro when Microsoft offered at a very good price £17.99! 31sy Jan 2013.
    I have subsequently taken advantage of major update 8.1 Pro (Free) but failed to take a back up, hope this info helps, all my updates bought or free are from Microsoft store.

    Cheers

    I do believe the OP is looking for 8.1 install media and or a way to save update 1 to install it locally.
    Maybe this will help, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create
