Hi,

I am doing an upgrade for a customer from windows 8.1 to 8.1 enterprise,
according to Microsoft TMB, you can save settings, personal files, and applications doing the upgrade, see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj203353.aspx#EightOne

However, when I am trying to upgrade from 8.1 (same language, same architecture),
I only get two options:
1. Keep personal files.
2. Nothing.

(see screenshot).

Why is that? what am I doing wrong?

It sounds like your upgrading from windows 8.1 core to enterprise.

You may need to go to windows 8.1 pro then to enterprise.
