    Upgrade from 8.0 to 8.1 without going to the Store

    Somebody asked how to do this on an existing thread, but I can't seem to find it.

    Word of warning, this is stuff I looked up on line, it's not something that I actually did.

    Go to http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl....aspx?id=42327 for 32-bit systems

    Or http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl....aspx?id=42335 for 64-bit systems

    Check to see if you already have some of them installed if KB 2919442 and KB 2959977 are not already installed, you will have to find them.

    download the 6 files (or the ones you need)

    Install the updates in this order (this includes KB 2919442 and KB 2959977, which are not in the six downloads above.)

    Word of warning, this is stuff I looked up on line, it's not something that I actually did. This is no more than a starting point.

    Be sure to make an image before attempting this.

    KB2919355 is the Windows 8.1 Update not the upgrade from 8.0 to 8.1. For a workaround see How to download Windows 8.1 ISO using Windows 8 product key.
