    Open your web browser.
    Go to Amazon.com
    Search windows 8.1
    Add to cart.
    Buy.

    Enter the key and activate.

    Install it from STORE. It will keep your activation and generate a new data.dat and tokens.dat.
    You may backup those files for a future reinstall.

    Well the other thread says the updated with success. However i can't even see the update in the store for some reason. I installed windows 8 via kms and then updated with the media center key for permanent activation. Still i can't see the windows 8.1 in the store. Help?

    This ^

    Come on, everything was fun in the '00 and no money because "we were kids". But seriously, just buy it, come on, buy it.

    Everything has a limit, you can't pirate the os over and over until you're 60 yo. god's sake.

    i mean , you need to download win 8.1 ISO, burn it to a usb or dvd, boot your pc to the win 8.1 media, and install
    cant upgrade kms activated win 8. It is easy

    your W8 copy is activated using KMS which means that you are on a volume channel. Volume is not visible in Store, only retail can see the 8.1 offer.
    Go and download your version of 8.1 from the 8.1 repository and upgrade or make a clean install upon your choice
