    Did anyone tried to update from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 using the Windows 8.1 Setup?

    I am very keen to test the update from Windows 8 Enterprise - Windows 8.1 Enterprise :)

    I am getting the following error message

    You can't install Windows 8.1 because your processor doesn't support CompareExchange128

    Any Clue? I am trying on Virtualbox Latest version and Windows 8 Enterprise x64

    So were you able to successfully update from 8 enterprise to 8.1 enterprise?
