    Hello, this is my first Windows 8.1 installation. (Coming from Windows 7, as I only use windows for games, updating late).

    Anyway, the thing is, I've been browsing some of the threads here and I want to install the latest update, of course.
    So now I'm confused this GA/RTM and stuffs. I Just want to know which one to install and which one is the latest. I've found this repo, which has magnets, so I just need to know which one should I download and install. I can't link to the repo link, but the thread title is The Windows 8.1 (& related) Repository and thread count 47732.


    Isn't there any Windows 8.1 Pro Update 1 available?


    Plus, I have a Windows 8 Pro key which I got from work (someone from another company gifted, probably), so can I use this key for 8.1? \

    simply go after a W8.1pro version upon your language needs, install with generic key and activate with your 8 key if valid > done

    In that thread, only windows 8.1 with Update 1 is this one? Spanish? But I need a English one.
    The one was: Windows 8.1 Update 1 with Bing SL (Spanish). img x86 and x64

    Yeah I understood that. The only thing I don't understand is which one should I use, which is the latest Windows 8.1?

    all of them in the Jukebox. There are no later versions at this very moment

    edit: don't run the spanish .img thing since this is a OEM thingy. Simply take a spanish/english iso upon your x86 or x64 archtecture which all show in the box as natural W8.1 versions

    Alright I'lll check this out.

    I just googled. Thanks anyway.


    BTW, I guess I know which one to download/install now. I'll take Windows 8.1 Pro With Update (non-N, of course).
    Mods can close this :)
    And this forum is pretty great, and friendly :D
