    Buying a Pro Pack is one way to do it. You just enter the key via Add Features and all the pro features are unlocked/installed. No media needed only the product key.
    Buy Windows 8.1 Pro Pack - Microsoft Store

    No, it will unlock features you already have.

    Cheaper just to buy the Pro key ( about $60 ), rather than the upgrade key.

    What does Pro give you over the base 8.1 ?

    Get an OEM licence, they usually are cheap and almost every online shop that sells pc software and hardware offers them.
