0 locate your windows key
1 Download 8.1 as an ISO -> http://winsupersite.com/windows-8/windows-81-tip-download-windows-81-iso-windows-8-product-key
2 Use MS' "USB download tool" to write it to a USB drive
3 boot of that USB drive and install 8.1, when asked for a key, use a key for your edition from here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj612867.aspx (for core [="home"] use 334NH-RXG76-64THK-C7CKG-D3VPT )
4 after installation, switch back to your original key and activate it.
