Hi, so basically, I just wanted to make sure that I will be doing everything right before I mess something up. I'm upgrading my CPU/motherboard, so I bought 8.1 Pro because I had 7 OEM. Right now, I have my old motherboard and cpu installed, and I made an instal disk for 8.1. Basically, what I'm asking is what order should I do everything. Should I install the mobo and cpu and then boot with the install cd in? Should I upgrade to 8.1 while using the old cpu/mobo? Also, do I need internet to do any of this if I already have made intsall cd? I'm moving, and might not have internet for a few days and want to try out my new parts. Lastly, I want to keep all of my data on my two hard drives (one 1TB drive and a 2 TB drive), and I'm also buying a graphics card, and I don't know when the best time to install that would be. Thank you for all of the help, and if anyone has any advice that I missed, it would be greatly appreciated.
