    The client for SCCM 2012 will work on Windows 8.1 but I'm not sure you can deploy it from SCCM 2012. You will probably need either 2012 R2 or a cumulative update. I suspect the former.

    You'll also run into other trouble with it as SCCM 2012 doesn't recognise the OS properly so any deployments that you have which are set to look for the OS as a requirement will fail.

    you need mdt2013 to deploy it i believe and the associated adk for 8.1 as 2013 dosent work with win7/8 adks (again i believe). Ive got it running on 4 pcs in schools been installed here for a few weeks as a test on my pc and 2 suite pcs dual booting to 7 (win8.1 is a vhd)

    If it's not running on Apple hardware you'd be breaking the terms of use by doing so...

    For those who haven't already got it, the ADK for 8.1 is available here too:

    Download Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) for Windows 8.1 from Official Microsoft Download Center

    Includes the latest version of WinPE and VAMT amongst other things

    This is a really simple question but I haven't found a simple answer!

    Does anyone know if you have Windows 8 already installed whether you can install it over the top like a service pack rather than flattening and reinstalling?

    Yes, you can. I did it a couple of weeks ago, no problem.

    I don't use Metro though so I don't know if it'll bugger up your modern apps or not.

    /edit Just to clarify, I downloaded the 8.1 Enterprise ISO from MSDN a couple of weeks ago and upgraded using that.
