Windows 8.1 is available in the Store

Around 13:00 CET Microsoft has made the Windows 8.1 update available in the Store. I have the Windows 8.0 with Media Center installed, and I can upgrade it to Windows 8.1 with Media Center with just a few clicks.

After you clicked the Update Windows tile, you only have to click Download to start the upgrade process.

Since the download is about 3.4 GB in size and everybody is downloading it around now, it probably will take a while…

And after a while….

image

The computer needs to restart…

image

The upgrade process will continue after the reboot…

image

…and after a while you can accept the new license agreement and the upgrade has finished.

It’s really annoying that, even though this is an update, I have to go through the configuration again…

And off course I use two-factor authentication.
