    If the key has not been used it should work fine with the 8.1 Pro ISO.

    Windows 7 Ult Reatil & Win 8 Pro OEM

    Thanks Jim. You're right, the key worked fine. I have two computers and originally bought and loaded Win Pro 8 on the first computer. I only bought W8.1 to avoid downloading the big update, (to W8 to get W8.1), and installed it on my other PC; and replaced W8 on 1st PC with W7. Now have Win Pro 8.1 on both PCs each with their own key. And no need to download the big 3GB + update on W8 to get 8.1. It's also easier for reloading W8.1 instead of original OEM disk.

    Many thanks, as it makes life a lot easier when a fresh install is needed. Normally I just use stored image of system to do updates, but only good for a limited number of re-updates, if you know what I mean.

    The only regret is that MS didn't just bring out the ISO for W8.1 that worked off a W8 OEM product key a year ago, which would have saved me buying an 8.1 OEM disk. History now though.

    Cheers M
