    Welcome to the forum,

    This should help you with that,

    Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create

    Option one is the easiest method.

    Why do you say that? I have a Win 8 key but the 8.1 works just fine with it.

    Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 both can use the Windows 8 product key to install the OS

    Was there a day when that was not the case?
    I remember a couple years ago when a MS tech had me dl a ver of Win 8 then update because my 8 key wouldn't activate a Win 8.1 install.
    Or perhaps it's just brain damage :>
    In any event...THANKS!

    Question for you. Would a Windows 8.1 key work if I wanted to activate Windows 8 x64 Core (the original)?
