  1. Hi Guys,

    Know this is an old forum but I’m looking for the latest full version of Windows 8.1 Enterprise x64, please could someone shed some light in obtaining an ISO? I do not have access to the MS Volume Licensing Portal.

    1. Hi TechSupport, the above mentioned links are working. I’ve double checked. The links will take you to the ISO file of Windows 8.1 Enterprise.

  2. The evaluation version (from the links provided) cannot be upgraded to the full version. After 90 days, your computer will simply stop working. You will need to reformat the drive, lose everything, and reinstall a licensed version.

  3. I sit with a major issue…

    The company I work for just bought new pc’s and windows 8 licenses, now they want to upgrade to windows 8.1.

    Is there no way of doing this without sitting down at all 350 pc’s and updating them one by one?

    1. Do you have WSUS installed in your network? If no then you may install it and download and push Windows 8.1 update through WSUS. Otherwise, you may download it once and run it silently using the domain group policy on each PC startup.

      1. Thank you, that info helps allot.
        We bought the PC’s before installing the servers and I had to sit and install 350 windows 8. Did not look forward on doing the upgrade one by one as well.

  4. Thanks for the share but this is just an evaluation..
    Windows 8.1 Enterprise EVALUATION..
    Evaluation is different from final version..
    You can’t activate this after 90 days..

  5. Hi i have win 8 enterprise edition with fully activated by activator. if i download this offline installer and upgrade win 8 to 8.1 then my windows is activated or not?

    1. If your Windows 8 Enterprise edition is an illegal copy then I think you should not upgrade as this will make your Windows unusable. Just buy Windows 8.1 license and use it instead of using the enterprise edition.

    1. If you have downloaded the ISO image, you can burn it to your USB flash drive or DVD-ROM. You can use imgBurn utility to burn the ISO image to the DVD-ROM and use WinToFlash (http://wintoflash.com/home/en/) for burning the ISO image to the USB drive.

      After you have created the bootable USB drive or DVD-ROM, boot your computer from the respective device and start installing Windows!

  6. i don’t want the whole package with stupid “Enterprise version” and other stuff only solo Windows 8.1 ‘OFFLINE’ Installer where i can Download the whole ISO File!!!!

    1. Windows 8.1 Professional, Ultimate or other editions are not available for download from Microsoft except for those who have MSDN and TechNet subscriptions. Only “Enterprise Version” is available for free. Should you want to install Windows 8.1, feel free to ask for a buy link not a download one 😀
