    You can't - Enterprise is licensed as a volume licensed SKU, whereas Windows 8 Professional is a retail or OEM SKU. There's no upgrading from one to the other, they're separate purchases and separate installations (you can't change one version to another without completely breaking activation/validation either - hence they need to be installed cleanly and not as an upgrade attempt).
