What's the difference between the "VL" and the "N VL " files. I don't want to get something that will screw me!!!

Also, will my Win 8 pro key work with this Win 8.1 Pro iso file?

Thanks
Normally yes.

Actually no. Only if you update via windows store. if you upgrade via DVD you'll need a W8.1 key. I can vouch for that, tested it myself.

On the other hand and answering to the OP:

N is made for the EU market and does not include Windows Media Player.
KN is made for the Korean Market and does not include Windows Media Player or an Instant Messenger.
VL are volume license editions for business enterprise customers and uses MAK (Multiple Activation Keys) or KMS (Key Management Server) to activate.

What you'll need

Before you get started, you'll need to have access to several things. First you'll need your Windows 8 Product Key and it has to be from a retail version of the product. In other words, if you received a computer with Windows 8 preinstalled, then you have an OEM Product Key and you cannot use that type of key for this procedure.

So if you either purchased a Windows 8 DVD at your local computer store or downloaded Windows 8 from Microsoft, then you're all set to go.




As I mentioned, you'll need to perform this trick from a Windows 7 system. As you seek out a Windows 7 system to use, be sure that it is has the same processor type as you are using on the Windows 8 system that you want to upgrade to Windows 8.1. (By processor type, I mean 32-bit vs. 64-bit.) The reason for this is that the processor type in the system that you use to download Windows 8.1, will determine the version of Windows 8.1 that you'll end up with.

For example, if your Windows 8 system is running a 64-bit processor, then you'll want to use a Windows 7 system with a 64-bit processor. You'll then end up with a 64-bit version of Windows 8.1.

I have a windows 8 key and I will try tomorrow if it works.

(Update) windows 8 key does dot work with 8.1 ISO DVD.

So it seems it doesn't worth to find a 8.1 iso since I have a Windows 8 key... ;-(

It's ridiculous IMO.
