I plan on doing a clean install from 8 to 8.1 anyway, so essentially, there should be no issue at all with this? I just grab the iso, put it on a DVD or flash drive, install with that product key, and just win?
Edit: My locale is enUS also

I guess it might work if you have installed the english LPK. I'll get it a try in my lab tomorrow.

Is this through Microsoft Connect or something?
I thought the update notification would just pop up automatically on June 26th. Now i know i'll have to download an update package.
And one more question:
If i do a clean install of the preview (by burning the ISO to a DVD or flash drive)...
Will i be able to upgrade to the RTM?
That's because i prefer a clean install over an upgrade...
No left-overs from the earlier OS.
I dont think you can upgrade 8.1 to 8. That would be a backwards upgrade (downgrade)
I rather do clean installs as well (wipe and load heh). Upgrades tend to get messy sometimes.
Added in the first post of this.
What happens when the preview is over. Will us guys using a legit win 8 key be able to just upgrade to the final through the store?
