While Windows 8.1 is a free upgrade to existing windows-8 users and also something can upgrade windows-8 setup into Windows 8.1 without installing programs, PC users who are running an old version of Windows can not directly upgrade to Windows 8.1 upgrade.Which means, you are going to have the ability to store personal documents and Windows settings just.

 

But prior to installing Windows 8.1 in your own Windows XP system we recommended you assess if your personal computer's hardware supports Windows 8.1 os.

To put it differently, you can not upgrade Windows XP and Vista into Windows 8.1 with no fresh setup. Though performing a fresh install is obviously superior option, some end users may prefer to upgrade Windows XP into Windows 8.1 without moving through the advocated blank installation procedure. For this process you must have activate windows, for this we provide you win 8.1 key totally free 

 

If you wish to upgrade to Windows 8.1 out of Windows XP with no fresh setup, then you want to first upgrade the setup to windows-8 by simply purchasing the now available windows-8 upgrade press, upgrade to Windows 8.1 at no cost (Windows 8.1 upgrade is free for windows-8 users) if Microsoft releases the Windows 8.1 upgrade on October 18th.
