    However, the update might fail for some users. Here's what you have to do if you are affected by this issue.

    According to the official release notes, KB2871839 is required for every Windows 8 installation. This is not a problem if you have Windows Updates turned on and set it to install updates automatically.

    I have a W8 pro key only but to install only have the core version. So i install the core first with a pirate key and after insert que core key and it activate and upgrade without problems. But this time i cant upgrade or even activate by phone says that is a disabled function.

    When i create the partition to install W 8.1 in this specific pc the installer create some partitions that never create on other pcs.
