    Download Windows 8.1 Update (KB2919355) from Official Microsoft Download Center


    Make sure you read the install instructions, as there are some other updates you must apply before installing 8.1

    If it came with Win 8.1 originally installed, it should reset it to that.

    These guys might know a little better than me - I'm not sure if it will pull the key that was entered in Windows 8 when 8 was installed, or if you have to enter it after updating. If you do, simply use the key from the bottom of your computer.

    Probably no key on bottom, will have to use ShowKey to extract it.
