    if I understand correctly op means if he can use a genuine 8 key for activating 8.1
    if so, the answer is yes if 8.1 is installed with generic key first and then key is changed to original 8 key

    Don't forget that little workaround where entering a legit 8 retail key allows you to download the 8.1 ISO ;)
