    I have a Windows 8 Pro product Key that I had with my system builders Disc, but I want to get an 8.1 Update ISO. I have tried all the generic keys but I can not get it to download the ISO. Have they been blocked by Microsoft?

    I bought the System Builders edition too, Burtie. Looks like the generic keys are blocked as well as per note box in step 3 of this tutorial.

    Did you already see if you may be able to download a Windows 8.1 ISO using Option One with your Windows 8 key instead of a generic key?

    I was afraid of that since only retail keys are accepted to download an ISO with.

    I guess you'll have to install Windows 8 with your key, then update to 8.1 whenever you want to do a clean install.
