    Hello guys :)
    I have Windows 8.1 activated by phone. I wrote down my key, first part of numbers which is my ID and Confirmation ID which I got from phone bot :) Will I be able to use this information to activate Windows 8.1 Update 2014?

    It should not be necessary to activate again if you install the next update to an already activated Windows 8.1.

    there is less chance that you will get the same installation ID on your next clean install with the same CD Key. Please note that if your Cd Key is retail one legally purchased then you can use it to activate online or via phone many times without problem but if your Cd key is taken from public forum/sites then there is likely chance that the said cd key has already been activated with its maximum limit so you can't use it to activate your windows online or via phone activation.

    Thanks guys. A few day ago I re-installed my Win 8.1 and it was activated successfully with my key and acivation/confirmation ID. I thought may be new Win 8.1 Update 2014 will have any issues with activation :)
