Just guide to myself for future reference elsewhere...

In Windows Vista (or XP) environment, you cannot upgrade Windows 8.1 without upgrading to Windows 7 first without losing your Windows Vista's data and setting.

Here I'll show you, how to upgrade to Windows 8.1 Pro from Windows Vista Home Premium.
- if you don't have Windows 7 installer, sorry... you need to clean install Windows 8.
- you need to buy Windows 8 DVD from high street retailer or Online DVD. Or another option buy online (download version) then download it from another Windows 7 PC/Laptop (friends or work), then burn it into DVD.
