I have a laptop running Win7 Home Premium and I'd like to use the upgrade rights from Intune to get this to Win7 Enterprise. Can I use the Anytime Upgrade process and a key from the Intune app?
If so, how do I go about obtaining the proper key?
If that's not how things work, can you help with some information that details how this would work?

Unfortunately Home Premium doesn't qualify as a base OS for the upgrade rights, it needs to be Pro/Business or higher.
If you are using the Intune trial you won't get the informational email with the MOCP sign in details for downloading, but you can still get the Windows 7 Enterprise 90 day trial download for testing purposes at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/cc442495

Mark is correct. You will not be able to perform an upgrade, but you can perform a clean install of Windows 7 Enterprise if that works for you. You should be able to obtain your key with the following link: https://login.live.com/login.srf?wa=wsignin1.0&rpsnv=11&ct=1321766839&rver=6.0.5276.0&wp=MCLBI&wreply=https:%2F%2Fwww.microsoft.com%2Fonline%2Fdownloads%2FCatalog.aspx%3Fuiculture%3Den&lc=1033&id=74335 Make sure you log in with your tenant administrator account.
