I need to install Windows 8.1 but unfortunately lack an installation medium. I have a Windows 8 DVD and could install Windows 8 first, then upgrade from Windows Store. But I am not sure what is the right way?
Option 1: first install all updates, upgrade to Windows 8.1 and after that install antivirus software.
Option 2: first install antivirus software (involving browsing for software in the internet with outdated Windows 8) and after that do all the Windows updates and finally upgrade to 8.1
During that time I am not using the PC actively I will only connect to Internet to use Windows Update and Windows Store for upgrade to Windows 8.1 (No surfing in the internet, no data transfer via USB etc.)
