    Windows 8.1 Enterprise?

    I see that Microsoft offers a 90-day trial of the Enterprise version of 8.1. Not any other version that I see,

    If I install the trial, but then purchase the upgrade to 8.1 Pro, will there be an problems?

    Regards,

    It is not possible to upgrade the evaluation to a licensed working version of Windows 8.1 Enterprise. A clean installation is required.

    You won’t be able to ‘upgrade’ this evaluation version to a non-eval version at a later date, I noted in Get Windows 8 Now. “Because it’s Enterprise edition, you will see some features that you will not be able to access in the future when you install a mainstream, retail version of Windows 8 Core or Pro. And you must register when you install the software and sign in with a Microsoft account.

    OK, so I'll have to keep the data "safe" and run a clean install.

    Thanks,
