I have been trying to get the update to install windows 8.1 on my sistem without luck. While searching I realized my Windows 8 is pirated. I tried to contact the computer shop who installed it but they are out of business and cannot contact anyone.
I tried to buy a legitimate copy from the windows website but it is IMPOSSIBLE! the website says "Get the free update" however I cannot as my windows is pirated.
My question is, I want to make my copy of Windows 8 legal and upgradable to Windows 8.1. How can I purchase a legal copy without losing my data on my computer?
Below is the system screen. There are no option as to change the product key.
