    Is it easy to turn W8/8.1 SL into W8/8.1 Pro?

    Yes, so, to make the machines join a domain, is it only a matter of changing the Product Key given by the volume licensing channel, for example, and SL turns into Pro automagically, after the validation of the key and activation? So it is that simple? No need to clean OS install?

    Is it easy to turn W8/8.1 SL into W8/8.1 Pro?

    Solved Activate retail Windows 8.1 with Windows 8 Product key.

    Solved Activate retail Windows 8.1 with Windows 8 Product key.

    I'm not transfering the OS. In my case, I would be reinstalling on the same machine it came with. The machine came with Windows 8, and no OS disc was supplied.

    Solved Activate retail Windows 8.1 with Windows 8 Product key.

    Ok, so from my understanding... when it finds the OEM key laying on UEFI, it automagically bypasses all this... of course, when installing on the proper OEM machine... right?

    Solved Activate retail Windows 8.1 with Windows 8 Product key.

    I have a question.... When installing on a OEM machine (that came with no disk): I have the OEM key extracted and the machine came with Windows 8. Recently it upgraded from Windows Store and it's running 8.1. When I test the OEM key on a VBox machine with Windows Single Language ISO, the key...

    How to download Windows 8.1 Update 1 Official ISO file?

    Well I downloaded the ISO Single Language that I spoke of - the ESD that was converted to ISO by some guy who got from MSDN. I think there is no reason to believe this is no worse than getting directly from Microsoft Store and converting it yourself, right?

    How to download Windows 8.1 Update 1 Official ISO file?

    Now I am wondering... What is the best solution to obtain a "Update 1" ISO Single Language for OEM... Would setup a virtual machine work? My notebook updated and I have no previous Windows 8 OEM Single Language setup files... What should I do now?

    Hey guys... Can we expect a new ISO after this "August 12th Update" or is it best for us to move on with our lives with the current ISO form?

    How to download Windows 8.1 Update 1 Official ISO file?

    I'm still downloading and then I will test it. What I meant is that I prefer to do the ISO myself If I have the chance. Specially when I know it was that easy to do when upgrading. Anyway, will we have Update 2 enrolled into a new ISO release? Can we expect that by mid-august if all rumors...

    Oh man, that hurts even more... I am a bit reluctant to use ISOs made from somebody on the net. If I could just trick Windows Store in downloading the SL again...

    How to download Windows 8.1 Update 1 Official ISO file?

    So from what I read, it is still not enough to grab the files through the Store. You would still have to convert it to wim, and possibly insert efi.cfg and boot.wim into the folder structure?
