    Only VL or Enterprise editions allow this.

    If you have an original Windows 8 key, you should blame Microsoft, maybe after a lot of reports they will think it twice and release new iso.

    Yes, sir.

    It will ask for a product key if you download the ISO & try to update Win 8 to 8.1

    Downloaded the iso and gave it a try myself.

    Nope. It does not allow the Win 8 key (mine is retail).

    There is a way where you can install win 8.1 with a different key & change the key (input win 8 key) in the command prompt after installation & activate by phone.

    Google is your best friend. Although i have not tried the above.

    Cheers..!!
