Windows 8 and 8.1 was not a free upgrade from 7.

You could likely still upgrade to 10 for free(to my knowledge this is still working).

To upgrade to 8.1 you'd need to buy an upgrade key and either get a version that comes with the media or buy a retail key and use that key to download the install from Microsoft.

Download Windows 8.1 ISO file from Microsoft.

Use rufus to create installation media using USB flash drive.

For upgrade you can run installation from within windows 7.
For clean install - boot from windows installation media and install.
