    My question is pretty simple. How do I update my Windows 8 Pro which is activated via KMS to Windows 8.1.
    I am unable to see Windows 8.1 update in my Store. I read it somewhere on the Internet that KMS activated Windows 8 aren't getting update via store. Is it true?

    How can I update (not reinstall) Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 without loosing any of my personal and system data.
    Thank You.

    Short answer: You can't

    Long answer: Download one of the VL ISO in the Repo thread and do an in place upgrade.

    Sorry for the trouble.

    Actually, I had Windows 8 activated by KMS.
    Just today I upgraded my system to Windows 8.1 with an in place update. (Didn't loose my program files, documents and settings.)
    However, after the update I wasn't able to re-activate Windows with Microsoft ToolKit 2.5 Beta 4.
    Hence, I tried KMSpico tool, and it worked like a charm.
    Just heads up to people with same issue. Hope it helps!
