Will we need a reinstall for Windows 8.1?

post #1 of 3

Hey folks.

 

Will we need to do a clean install for Windows 8.1? Or will it be just a regular update? 

 

I am asking this because I will add 2 more HDDs tomorrow and I want to do a clean install of everything, however since 8.1 is around the corner I might wait few more weeks for the clean install.

 

Thanks in advance.

it will be just like upgrading from any other OS. because that is what it is. for example, going from 7 pro x64 to 8 pro x64 will auto-magically migrate all your applications, 8.1 will be the same, but should do it a little smoother we hope.

I have been running 8.1 beta which i upgraded from 8 pro, and that is how it worked when i did it

Hmm that is great than thanks buddy.

 

Perhaps I go ahead do a clean install tomorrow and just upgrade to 8.1 when it is available.
