Upgrade to Windows 8.1 from Windows 8.0 or Windows 8.1 Preview

0 shares Comment

The update from Windows 8 versions is free and is available in the Windows Store if running an up to date version Windows 8 Pro or RT. If you don't see the Windows 8.1 download option Run Windows update, if still unavailable type ms-windows-store:WindowsUpgrade in your browser to go directly to the upgrade. These instructions don't apply to Enterprise editions. If running Windows 8.1 preview or want to do a clean install there can be more work, especially if you do not have a USB recovery drive or recovery partition and typically involves reinstalling 8.0 and many software and/or firmware updates from Windows update. You must install the final version of Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1 before January 2014 when the license for the preview will expire. Some extra info for Surface RT that I found useful
