    I was wondering if and when the new kms server for 8.1 is out will i be able to upgrade from windows 8 to 8.1 from the store or no? If not will i be able to upgrade to the rtm release of 8.1 using an iso? If i do either of these things will i need to run the new kms activation?

    In order to activate 8.1 Ent when it is released, it will either require a new 8.1 Ent key, new kms activation or maybe MS giving us freebies for a short period (happened before!).

    I do not believe 8.1 ENT will be available through the store, no. But who knows with MS as of late :confused:

    Currently, upgrading from Win8 ENT to Win8.1 Ent leaves all KMS/MAK unusable from Win8 as it requires a new key and/or KMS Version 6
