    Title asks it all!

    I want to be able to use my laptop's OEM key to install Windows 8.1 instead of having to go through hassle to get a Windows 8 ISO.

    Can anyone help?

    Yes. I found this yesterday and I used it to download the Win 8.1 ISO and then burnt it to a bootable dvd.
    The article says you can use it to install Win 8.1 and you can use Win 8 product key at time of installation.
    Read this article......

    The only thing I don't know is...... does it actually work.
    I already have Win 8.1 Pro running. So, I keep the bootable DVD in case I need to re-install Win 8.1 Pro.
