Windows volume license upgrade to new win 8 not in store

4 posts in this topic

We have a 20 key Win 8 Pro license and well i want to upgrade to the latest update on my office pc but the rest of the staff will not just yet

Since i bought a new asus laptop at home, the new windows is amazing and going to an old version at work is ughh

I tried everything and could not get it to work, i even cloned the drive and tried installing win 8 pro using the key from my asus and then tried to change it to the volume key but no worky :(

this is by design. You need a Win8.1 VL ISO to upgrade from Win8 to 8.1. Only OEM and retail versions get the update offered in the store.

Offer to help them with the evaluation of Windows 8.1 acceptability for use in your office. :)

My suggestion: Do a fresh, clean install, not an in-place upgrade.
