    I suppose it's the ISO standard, no? That is, if validated, I have a non-ISO evaluation, no?

    In 90 days you may be able to validate with KMS?

    As far as I know (and I may be wrong), Enterprise Evaluation ISOs are different from Enterprise ISOs. Therefore, once your 90-day trial period ends and you wish to install Enterprise, you will have to fresh, clean install it.

    There is a workaround for Windows 8 ent eval converting to full version and I believe that this same procedure might work for the new as well

    I think (couldn't remember) that there was a trick to change eval to regular...... if that's true, you can use the eval and if some activation method(for enterprise, like KMS or MAK) is avialable within the 90 days, change it to the regular edition. :D

    Edit: yup, now I see Paul's post. :p

    So, looks like this 90-day trial RTM ISO is WITHOUT the GA updates integrated. What's the point to release this now? They could have released it earlier!

    Yes, in fact the GA rollup updates are automatically installed if you don't touch Windows Update settings.

    The hash SHA of evaluation is different from the MSDN/TECHNET enterprise. Both can be activated with a MAK key.

    Of course the hash is different, that's expected. The evaluation version has a product key and a time bomb embedded.

    If you don't mind reinstalling Windows (occasionally that is), using this for now is probably a good way to go. It will give you at least 90 days if you can't re-arm or do anything about the timebomb. This takes us, if installed now, until to the end of January 2014 which should hopefully give enough time for an effective, working solution to activation of the normal Windows 8.1 to be found.

    They will activate, but it still has a timebomb in it. You would be much better off getting the real thing and activating it. You can do so with a very small file to make a new ISO from your EVAL iso, so you do not have to download a huge iso again.

    Search in this thread for a delta or smartversion patch from EVAL 8.1 Enterprise x64 -to-> 8.1 Enterprise x64

    there should already be one made, if not someone will most likely make one.
