You just need the ISO so that's a way to do it.

I don't think MS has officially release Win 8.1 ISO though. I have clean ISO but it is not directly from MS though.

they have. they've just made it overly complicated to acquire through a few means unless you have a technet or msdn subscription

 

that's why i say it's just easier to get the ISOs through 3rd party means such as a torrent (which is still completely legal)

I found a magnet link for 8.1, with the update, through nsane forums in the Software Chat section.
