2 Windows 8.1 Pro/Enterprise* upgrades

Intel Compute Sticks with Windows 8.1 with Bing (32-bit) installed are upgradeable to Windows 8.1 Pro or Enterprise. After such an upgrade, the recovery partition still has the original factory image (Windows 8.1 with Bing; 32-bit). If you complete a Windows Reset or Refresh, you must upgrade again.
