    As it stands now...that's not possible. There is no ISO for download....legally.

    That remains to be seen...it's possible, but very doubtful.

    No...not at this time. There are only 2 options to install 8.1 at the moment, 1 is to upgrade through the MS store or 2 buy the retail DVD. Option 2 it the only way to do a clean install.
