Windows 8.1 is Live Preview Download

So friends – throw the machines, Windows 8.1 as a download or update is available, it is not about the ISO, which you can install as normal or in a virtual machine.. It is still only the Windows Store update, which can be installed from Windows 8, ISOs are available for download later. Requirements?

Microsoft Surface – Windows 8 RT

Should you want to install Windows 8.1 in a language different from your original system, then you will indeed be able to keep your data, but not apps and settings.

If any of you have one of the free language of Windows 8 use, then this Language Pack (LIP) is removed during installation. Microsoft announced that Windows 8.1 and the new version of Windows RT will continue to run on all known devices, as it is with the apps, this should work without problems. Interestingly, the distinction between the update via the Windows Store and install via ISO file.

Who uses a Windows 8 Pro with Media Center, which reserves the Media Center during the installation via the Windows Store, otherwise it looks at the use of the ISO file here you lose the media center and it must re-install. The ISO installation is the way to use all of a duty, the Windows 8 Enterprise. Anyone using the preview version of Windows 8.1, which must have necessarily a Microsoft account a local account this time not reached. The use by local account will only be possible again in the final version of Windows 8.1!

Tagged Dual Boot Windows 8 and Windows 8.1: also no problem, here you have to resort to ISO installation and re-install the system next to the old, the store no dual boot function is given. We will of course inform you as soon as the Windows 8.1 preview version is available for download.

I recommend at this point the way once the later upgrade via ISO file and install in their own system, since the publication of the final version upgrade preview version to Final version is possible, but this loses the apps, only the data and the user accounts? after updating.
