I am thinking that you are missing some group policy extensions that would be available via Windows Update. Can you do a "Check for Windows Updates" and see if you see such an update to install.

It's right where it should be on my win 8.1 in gpedit.msc. Please double check it.
If however you are talking about a Domain GPO, then you would need one of these two:
1 Server 2012 R2 as DC
2 server 2xxx as DC and RSAT from 8.1 connecting to it in oder to modify the GPO.

Reason: that policy is available from 8.1 (and 2012 R2) upwards.

Ok i see it on my Windows 8.1 in gpedit.msc

I have only DC with 2008 r2

Do i need to install RSAT from 8.1 on the server or on my Windows 8.1 ?

Thanks !

On 8.1. RSAT installs the GPMC on 8.1. Run it as domain admin afterwards and connect to your DC and there you go.

Sorry, I am doing EXACTLY the same and it is there. (I hope you won't ask me to prove it ;)
I repeat: this has to be done on 8.1, NOT on 8.

The DC OS does not matter at all. (I am on a 2008 DC). As you can read in your own screenshot, it says: "Administrative templates: Policy definitions (ADMX files) retrieved from your local computer".

Are you sure, you haven't simply overlooked it? Are the entries sorted by name?

Have you checked Windows Update to see if Group Policy Extensions are available. This would be ran on your Server 2008R2 Domain Controller

Sorry, BigPapaGotti, but those don't exist. MS does not distribute updates for ADMX files, nor new admx files via Windows update.

@jfguenet: no further idea. Please see if you can see any other win8/win8.1 exclusive policy. take for example this one: Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, System, Logon, Show first sign-in animation.

That's a win 8 plus level policy. See if you find a win8.1-only policy.

Ok, so all 8.1 settings are missing.
May I request you again to triple-check if you are running 8.1 and not 8?
If so, please setup another 8.1 (test virtual machine using a generic key as from here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj612867.aspx ) and install RSAT there.

I am sorry, no idea what could possibly go wrong. It should not matter at all what server OS you have and for me, with 8.1 and 2008 server, it works flawless.
Could you do me a favor and make a screenshot of the output of the command winver executed at the client?

That version is alright.
Another thing: did you install RSAT for 8.1 or for 8? I guess for 8.1 which is what we have.

So you could only work around it by using a central store with the new admx files for win 8.1/server 2012 R2. http://deployhappiness.com/creating-the-group-policy-central-store-updated-for-windows-8-12012r2/
