You can upgrade from 7 to 8.1..........

8.1 is far superior to regular 8 I can assure you that
But in any case you need to get the ISO files by registering with MS

yes i have 8.1 installed but it will not allow me to load up my system image from my windows 7 pro ......apparently windows 8 will allow this and then you upgrade from windows 8 to 8.1

Well it was a mission but I ended up installing everything fresh
Mouse software specific for windows 8.1
Internet USB modem g4 software and drivers specific for windiws8
On and on and on

But
Windows 8.1 for me is much much faster especially with battle field 4 70% better performance

A backup image created using Windows 7's backup tools will only be restored in a Windows 7 computer. Smae goes for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. I believe the sole purpose for the Windows backup tool for for O.S. restoration not O.S. migration. The tools for O.S. migration was Windows Easy Transfer, but, unfortunately that was only for data files and not installed programs.

WIndows backup is trash. Use Clonezilla is free and Linux based.

Its not a Linux OS

Just a bottable CD and it does all the work for you, follow the instructions. You can create images or straight up clone your drive to another drive. Its very simple to use.
