I saw that as well but when you download using the Windows Installation Media Creation Tool it gives you 5 choices (8.1, 8.1N, 8.1 Pro, 8.1Pro N, 8.1 Single Language). Don't know what the N means or single language. I decided to try just 8.1 64-bit and it installed and activated so I should be OK. Doing updates now.

The edition of Windows 8.1 doesn't include media center or windows media and all of those features. What's an N edition of Windows? - Windows Help. If you need these features then I think you can download them from Microsoft.

When I "upgraded" my Windows 7 machine to 8.1 I downloaded the Windows 8.1N version. That seemed to work. I only have Windows 10 on my computers now so I don't use Windows 8.1.
