    Hello

    It is possible to upgrade W8.1 With Bing to Pro using MSToolkit or other tool? I need to add this new machine i got to a domain.

    If only re install solution ill just downgrade to windows 7 as i have legit key for that.

    Thanks in advance

    Does the domain have a KMS server?
    -or-
    Do you have the generic Pro key and a method of activation once it's done?

    Add Features a.k.a. Anytime Upgrade still work just as before.

    Don't have a KMS server on the main domain server, i though this was a local thing from a tool?

    Also I don't have a key but im sure i could find one, use the tool to change this once acquired?

    Edit:
    The version of windows this machine came with is: Product Description: Win 8.1 RTM Core Volume:GVLK

    According to your first post:

    According to EditionMatrix-6.4.9841.0-Client:
    EditionID: CoreConnected >>>>> TargetIDs: Core, Professional, ProfessionalWMC
    So it's possible to upgrade having the right key. However I don't know how to do that with MTK for it can be used after the OS has been installed afaik.

    CoreConnected=Windows 8.1 with Bing
    Core=Windows 8.1
    Professional=Windows 8.1 Pro
    ProefessionalWMC=Windows 8.1 with Media Center

    Thanks, i had tried this but it failed due to being connected to internet, once disconnected everything worked perfect.

    Thanks all for help!
