    D/l both the windowssetup.exe ( for 8.0)

    windowssetupbox.exe from

    Upgrade Windows with only a product key - Microsoft Windows Help

    Run windowssetup.exe and enter your 8.0. key When it starts to d/l, close it.

    Then run windowssetupbox.exe

    That will download 8.1 without asking for any other key.
