    Laptop with Windows 8, want to upgrade to 8.1 pro with vlk


    I have a desktop computer that's running Windows 8.1 Pro using a multi-activation key that's only been used on that one desktop computer. It's a builder key, so works on a fresh install.

    I bought an Asus ROG G750JX that came with Windows 8, and upgraded to Windows 8.1. I'd like to upgrade it to Pro so I can use the BitLocker feature.

    I was advised that I needed an upgrade key and the multi-activation key won't work unless I do a fresh install.

    Is there a way I can circumvent this because I've got all my apps and what not installed, don't want to do a fresh install

    Hello And Welcome,
    Make Sure the version of the First Desktop Computer And The new PC is Same
    For Example the 1st one is Windows 8.1 Enterprise so the Second should have That too
    if The Versions are different i think they won't Work
    and Secondly Double sure your internet connection is working and you have typed the Key correctly.

    Yes you can circumvent its very easy, but it would violate eula.

    Try Dual Booting then transfer all of your wanted data then delete the windows 8 partition or save it to a spare hdd.
