Reinstall 8, then do all the updates, then the upgrade to 8.1 again...... Reply to USAFRet m 0 l amdfangirl May 11, 2014 7:22:27 AM It's possible to obtain a 8.1 ISO legally, isn't it?

Not officially. I'm not sure about the legality of torrents for something you have a key for, but they don't officially offer the ISOs for Windows 8 like they did for Windows 7 at Digital River.
