Windows 8.1 Core Upgrade to 8.1 Professional

Question: Windows 8.1 Core Upgrade to 8.1 Professional

I did research on the internet because I assumed that at some point I had upgraded to 8.1. What is the best way, and / or ei.cfg into the Source directory and then start an inplace upgrade? As seen / online / Set Edition: Professional

Then via "Control Panel \ All Control Panel Items \ System"
change and activate the product key. Core-key issues from the bios used and it will install the core version.

Start command prompt as admin and execute the following command:

Buy Dism 8.1 Pro Key (full version). Win 8.1 Pro ISO at MS Download, then edit and optionally PID.txt that it probably because of the UEFI registered keys possibly Originally it was once with Win8 Core shipped, and could give.

Is it even better to then upgrade (no reinstallation) using "Add features to Windows 8.1"? With a new installation you have to create the ei.cfg in the sources folder, otherwise
will this key also, possibly Or
Does that work with and the item "I already have a product key"? I liked one of your experiences?
