I don't know about you ?  but I didn't want to have to go to the Windows store for every 8.1 upgrade and didn't want to go buy full versions to do clean installs so this is what I did:

 

1.) use Paul's article to prep USB stick, for UEFI  Thank Paul :)

2.) Click " Install Windows 8.1 Pro " and choose make USB or ISO file to use with directions above.

3.) Boot to USB and install full version or upgrade your choose ( I used a Windows 8.1 Pro Key)

 

 

4.) I ran winver I ended up with Windows 8 Pro version 6.3 (Build 9600)
