    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?
    That's how it worked with the preview so I assume so, yes. Not sure whether it's being released via the Store (as per the preview) or Windows Update though - anybody got an answer on that one?

    Ah, maybe they're prioritizing surfaces first for the store?

    I'm actually wondering whether Enterprise SKUs might be left out of the Store upgrade process entirely due to our normal penchant for not wanting users to upgrade stuff...

    Store.

    Connected through to my home PC. Go into the Store (If you have UAC disabled, it will complain about needing it enabled to load the Store!!!) and it's the first huge tile saying Windows 8.1 Available. Currently downloading - 3.91GB!

    Ok, just look on VLSC and unless I am being blind I cannot see it!

    I can see Windows 8 with release date of 2012 but nothing for 8.1

    Some editions of Windows 8 don’t support the free update to Windows 8.1. These include:

    Windows 8 Enterprise


    Editions of Windows 8 Pro that are installed by enterprises using KMS activation


    Editions of Windows 8 that are installed using an MSDN ISO, and activated using multiple activation keys


    If you’re running one of these editions, you can't install the free update to Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1 from the Store.

    If you installed Windows 8 using an MSDN ISO, you might be able to install Windows 8.1 using a similar ISO from MSDN.

    Otherwise, you might be able to perform a clean install. For more info, see Update to Windows 8.1: FAQ.
    From Why can't I find the update in the Store? - Microsoft Windows

    I can't imagine Microsoft's servers being overloaded for 8.1 like Apples for iOS7!
