    Hi,
    I would like to ask if it's possible to build an own OEM Win 8.1 CD.
    We got our DELL Notebooks with Win 8.0 Professional preinstalled.
    We use the license from this Notebook (from the BIOS/UEFI) to activate it.
    The problem is that we create our own images based on the DELL OEM CD. If I install the Win 8.1 Update from the Store sysprep doesn't work because I "upgraded" from 8.0 to 8.1.
    When I install with a MSDNA CD with Windows Prof 8.1 it doesn't activate.
    So is it possible to "mix" the two images (OEM+Original 8.1) together to a "OEM 8.1 image" which activates properly?
    Thanks for your help in advance!

    Regards

    Thanks, the first link I saw, but it didn't help me.
    Second one I didn't see because it's listed in Win7 Section.
    Thank you very much, this helps a lot!
