  • AFAIK there is no OEM enterprise.  Where did you get the key and where did you get enterprise.  If you are a Volume licensee contact the Volume Licensee center https://www.microsoft.com/Licensing/servicecenter/default.aspx

    key that says "windows 8.1 OEM

    You need to either change enterprise to OEM, or get an enterprise key.

  • Window 8 version with the key version is different.

  • 1. If you have legal Enterprise version of operating system (installation medium, key/COE, invoice), then you are part of multilicense program. Every multilicense has its  administrator and support. This is your first contact to solve your problem. Most simple solution is new key.

    2. You cannot use key from different multilicense program, namely OEM in your case when Enterprise is installed.

  • how do i use my oem key then??

  • You cannot because it is not legal.  Return it to the place of purchase.

  • It is a legal copy of windows.  It is probably not a legitimate key (serial)
