    I did download installation media for another pc thinking I have 2 PC so this will eliminate downloading 2x. I'll try upgrade.

    Extract from my other post. I'm beginning to wonder was this just a fluke or whether the copy is going to deactivate at some future dateI-----

    I had a dual boot set-up with 8.1 and 10240.

    8.1 downloaded the RTM/GA. I have not upgraded this yet.

    10240 downloaded only some of the files for the upgrade so I clean installed the RTM/GA from the USB created from Microsoft. This wouldn't accept my 8.1 Pro key so I skipped the two screens for Key Input. When I checked the copy it was activated. WooHoo! I had to fiddle about to get the Fast/Slow ring option.

    cyberrufus said NOT to boot but find the setup.exe (in my case it was on the USB drive) & run that from desktop. It appears to be working.
