    Hi is there any way to upgrade to 8.1 ? I am currently using my netbook but it can't run metro apps? Is there any way install 8.1 aside from downloading an official image of 8.1?

    Install all updates through Windows Update and the 8.1 update should appear in the Windows Store.

    He's probably limited to a 1024x600 screen resolution.

    Also, didn't catch that with my first post. TC, you'll have to connect to an external monitor to be able to run the Windows Store to download the 8.1 update. Otherwise, you'll need to update from media (either DVD or USB).

    Me too, I had no clue!

    We found this out at work. We are a Microsoft partner and therefore we use Windows Enterprise. When 8.1 was released we had to download the full ISO and reinstall Windows. We actually stayed on Windows 7 until 8.1 was released, but we did have 1 or 2 machines with Windows 8 that we discovered couldn't update through the Store.
