    I'm not finding much information about this on MDL or otherwise.

    Is it not possible to upgrade Win 8 Enterprise to 8.1 anymore?

    You can do an in place upgrade and need a 8.1 enterprise key for this also.

    How does this apply to the SECO injector?

    Nevermind. This won't work for me. I don't have a product key.

    When I try to upgrade, the Windows 8 installer says it failed to validate product key. :confused:

    So... yeah. What am I doing wrong?

    More to the point, what should I be doing?

    Wait a second; this upgrade applies to a Preview install of Windows Enterprise. That won't work for me.
