    If the product key is for a "retail" Pro or core edition of Windows 8.1, then you could use Option Two in the tutorial below to download an ISO file that can be used to install Windows 8.1 with.

    Since it's Windows 8.1 Enterprise, you could download the 90-day trial copy at the Microsoft link below.

    Try Windows 8.1 Enterprise | TechNet Evaluation Center

    After you install Enterprise, you could change it's product key to your key to activate it.

    If it's a legal Windows 8.1 Enterprise key, then it should.

    Otherwise, where did you get it from?

    Did you sign in to the site with your Microsoft account to be able to download it?

    If so, you might try another browser.

    If you downloaded and installed Windows 8.1 Enterprise, then you'll need to activate it next.
