    You can't keep your settings, apps & so on, if you're using English(UK) or any other language pack version. You have to use English(US) with your Windows 8. Then you can upgrade without any problems.

    Ah, OK.

    Thanks for that, tst.

    Got it sorted eventually, anyhow, and have taken a system image, so it should be a while before I have to do it again.

    Activate with your legit Windows-8-Pro / Core - Key. Add the WMC with your legit WMC-Key. That is how it worked for me.

    You can only use a 8-Pro-Key with a 8.1-Pro-Install, as far I know. Did you mix up Pro and Core ? Tried Phone-Activation ?

    So I found this Torrent for Windows 8.1 build 9471 from h33t before I came across the RTM build a couple days ago which comes with some interesting registry tweaks already done to Windows on the ISO image.

    Link: [LINK REMOVED BY ADMIN]

    I was wondering if anyone knows how the tweaks are done manually using regedit particularly these:

    - Kill apps on shutdown instantly (this was default in Windows 8 and has been changed in Windows 8.1, I really want this back)
    - Kill Tasks instantly
    - Make Command Prompt always run as admin (also want this really bad too I use Command quite often and it gets really old having to right click run as Admin)

    Thanks in advance,

    Are you saying that anyone that started with an OEM Windows 8 or upgraded to Windows 8 from OEM Windows 7, has to move to the back of the bus?
