    @Im bored" Please be bored and don't help someone. I'm not asking someone to download it and test it for me.
    Don';t post anything here if you can;t understand.

    I said if someone here have downloaded the torrent and is working fine then let me know, I'm not asking someone to download it for me. "Paiva: Said is safe so i asked him that is it working? and have you download this from the same torrent i am posting here.

    And What was suggested by OLDMX is 8.1 Repository and it does not have the new links released in October.

    @im bored" Please don't post anything here if you don;t know anything. Thank you

    This sentence here makes me believe that you want someone to download and test.

    @Pavia said that it's safe and than he posted links for you to download (That's what it looks like he was referring to as safe, NOT the TPB link you posted)

    @OldMX has shown you a reliable place to get a download but you kept pushing on getting it from TPB.

    Once again ALL the Windows 8.1 downloads are right here

    @im bored" You are judging me wrong. I want to download the release of 17th October. First check the repository and tell me is it October version? NO it is not the member who posted Repository have mentioned that it 9 September 2013 Leaks links not october.

    And @Pavia Said it is safe but posted the x86 version and that;s why i keep asking him that have you downloaded the version from the torrent i have posted here or from somewhere. You have understand things in wrong style.

    I m clearing you once again what i say here is for help of experts. Because i;m not a active user and i don;t have much knowledge about windows. But i know MDL Experts can help me.

    Microsoft Only updated VL copies of Windows 8.1 in October
    Microsoft DID NOT update the RETAIL copies of Windows 8.1
    which means that
    RETAIL from Microsoft was released during SEPTEMBER
    VOLUME LICENSE from Microsoft was updated during OCTOBER

    Once again, again
    RETAIL (SEPTEMBER Release)
    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/47732-The-Windows-8-1-(-amp-related)-Repository#a7i

    VOLUME LICENSE (OCTOBER Release)
    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/47732-The-Windows-8-1-(-amp-related)-Repository#a7xiv

    The updated ISO has the word ROLLUP-1 in it.

    MDL members have been pointing you all towards the same thing and you keep on trying to looks for something that doesn't exist. Microsoft DID NOT update RETAIL ISO in October so you wont find them.

    Cut it out, you two.

    OP:

    There's a thread devoted to 8.1 ISO files in nearly all versions. If you want retail, go buy it. If you want to use 8.1 for free, then you've to use VL editions. Everything you find here will be safe. Devs are good people who don't feel the need to destroy your PC. If you want to download some torrent you find on some pirate site, go ahead and download it. The people here all use files downloadable from here. And as for the date, stop being so picky. What you get here works perfectly well if you know what you're doing.

    If you want to know whether you can upgrade, we need to know what you're running. 7? 8? Which edition? How is it activated? The entire details.

    As for activation, rule out phone activation. M$ will block those keys quite soon. And as for KMS, there are threads to discuss that topic. Now stop squabbling and go read over there.
