    Windows 8.1 Download?


    Hi guys,
    My laptop came with inbuilt win8.1,
    So i guess i've right to download a genuine copy of windows and use that with inbuilt OEM license key?
    I cannot find any iso files that are genuine,
    And using Windows Media Creation Tool it is taking ages even on decent download speed,there is no option to pause/resume too
    Any other alternative to download a copy of win 8.1?
    Thanks in advance

    Its about a 4 GB download its going to take a while. While you download speed may be fast MS servers could be very busy and slow

    Hi,
    It took about 5hrs to download 7%
    Then i thought it will have resume capability just like updating windows 8 to 8.1 from store , so i closed that application,
    when i started back,it repeats from first step

    Your options are limited with an OEM product code. Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create Other than bit torrent, your options are limited. Keep in mind that the Media Creation Tool download has to match your OEM installed version. If your PC came with 8.1 and you install 8.1 Pro, you'll be prompted to enter a key. same deal if you install 8.1 and it shipped with Pro. If you can get a TechNet or MSDN ISO it is multi edition, Core and Pro, and will auto detect your embedded OEM key. Also, if your laptop shipped with 8.1 Single Language, or 8.1 with Bing you need those specific versions for the OEM key to be used.
