    Are you running the latest versión of Mavericks on your Mac? If the answer is no, you need it.

    If yes:

    Code:
    http: // softicle . com/en_windows_8.1_with_update_x64_dvd_4065090.iso
    After installed, you can actívate Windows with KMSPico or Microsoft Toolkit :biggrin:

    No difference, just choose one or the other.

    It's already 8.1 with April's update.

    I almost forgot! You'll need an installation key. Use this one:

    EDIT: Sorry guys, I thought that generic keys were allowed, it won't happen again.

    You also forgot you're not allowed to openly post keys here?

    You're not supposed to post keys on the forum - even generic ones.

    Edit: @Carlos - Apologies, posted over you.

    At least the key must match the edition you wanna install, i.e. Professional (key is for this one).

    So far the latest ISOs available.
