Windows 8 Pro to 8.1 Pro RTM Upgrade Path? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've grabbed the 8.1 Pro RTM and am trying to test the upgrade path for various machines however it seems (rather oddly) that an 8 Pro machine is only offered "keep personal files only" during upgrade, with no option for a true in-place upgrade. Is this a known issue? I was under the impression there was a fully supported upgrade from 8 to 8.1 with the ability to keep all apps (both TIFKAM and "desktop"), users accounts, configuration, etc.

    Can someone please clarify.


    If at first you don't succeed, redefine success.

  • I had a similar issue, I had to remove my en-GB language pack in order for it to work.

    If it only works with a singly language pack or just not with en-gb and en-us at the same time, I do not know
