    Hello, i have permanent activated my Windows 8 and i saved the activation files on usb
    What i am asking is that if i will wait until the final build of windows 8.1 be released (not installing it from windows store)
    and if i do a FRESH install of Windows 8.1 and paste the activation files of Windows 8.0 will the activation files be accepted?

    If you had activated Win8 with a valid serial number then, why not trying to activate Win8.1 using internet?

    Let's just hope that Microsoft doesn't alter the KMS activation mechanism currently present in Windows 8 :cool: or maybe that's what they will change through Windows update...so that they can validate that we are using genuine Windows before they make the Windows 8.1 preview link available in the Windows Store :eek:
