Which option do I choose if I upgraded to Win 8.1 after I bought my Flip 13?

[ Edited ]

This web site ony mentions preinstalled.  My Flip had Win 8 preinstalled, but I would think I could use the 8.1 preinstall procedure.

 

Which is the correct option for my situation?

  • [Peter] : Windows 8.1 is a free upgrade from Windows 8.0 preinstall.  Windows should of notified you to upgrade / install Windows 8.1.  If you perform a recovery then all you need to do is perform all the Windows Update and the Windows 8.1 installation option will appear from the "Windows Store"
  • [Peter] : It is required that you install Windows 8.1 in order to install Windows 10 since your preinstall OS is Windows 8.0

Darn, I wasn't clear.  

 

My Flip had Win 8.0 preinstalled, then I upgraded to Win 8.1.

 

Now, to upgrade to Win 10, do I use the Win 8.0 preinstall upgrade path or do I use the Win 8.1 preinstall upgrade path?

  • [Peter] : Drivers and Applications will be availiable for your PC around November 2015 because your OS was Windows 8 preinstalled.  (Windows 8 Preinstall path)
