Can I just download Windows 8.1, extract the iso and use the setup.exe to install a new Windows version? ( 7 to 8.1 )

You need to make a USB drive bootable and have a code for Windows 8.1, then burn the ISO to the USB drive, i use Rufus for that. <Also to make it bootable.

Yeh, you just select the first option, called Upgrade, it keeps all of your personal settings but installs the new version of Windows. 

I'd suggest doing this by burning the ISO file to a DVD disk and installing from there instead of a USB.

It is possible to do this way, not just running the setup.exe but an upgrade started from inside windows. but i would highly recomend you do not do this.

A clean install is your friend, i love that fresh clean feeling.

 

If you must, and you have enough reason you will have to contact microsoft for the files as im pretty sure the any time upgrade asks for a full install now.

He's talking about how you can install Windows from within Windows (I did it when reformatting instead of having to boot to the USB.

Well I'm not sure about that, this is the only sure way I know how to upgrade/install Windows.
