HI Folks

I have not found such a guide for IT managers with many Lenovo PC with the problem of windows update them all to 8.1 and having to download all GB of data ..

Requirement: have an MSDN subscription! (Microsoft)

  1. Download the iso of windows 8.1 update 1
  2. Download the tool Windows 8 Product Key Viewer 1.4.7d and run on Lenovo Pc with Windows 8 and Take note of the key of Windows 8.
  3. Burn the ISo in an DVD
  4. Insert the DVD in to Lenovo Pc
  5. Run the cd From Windows and follw the istruction ofr upgrade
  6. After upgrade is done, go in activation of Windows and insert the old Key of Windows 8 and The PC have your regular KEY.

I hope I was helpful to all IT MANAGER those who have to update many PC and can not wait for hours and occupy the internet bandwidth!

You can mount iso's in Windows 8/8.1, no need to burn to a DVD or USB.

Then put the iso on a shared network drive, and use remote desktop to mount and install it on the target computer.
