Apply Win 8 enterprise over Win 8

New Lenovo ideapad P400 came with Win 8 loaded.  How do I change it to Win 8 pro or Win 8 Enterprise?   Do I need to use the Win 8 Enterprise ISO (burned to DVD) and do the install or can I Just change the Product Key to Win 8 enterprise?   Does the product key determine the features to turn on?  Is the base code for Win 8 the same for all versions?  or Do I need to specifically use the Enterprise DVD and do an install or update?

Also Where does the Lenovo Laptop get the product key from?  The install did not ask for a Key.  How do I activate?  Lenovo does not provide documentation containing Win 8 product key.

I haven't done this but you should be able to run the upgrade assistant.  That is mostly used for things like windows 7 to windows 8.  Other then that you may have to get the ISO/DVD and put it in while the computer is running, then click on upgrade.  Just make sure the DVD is the version of windows 8 that you want to use.

hope that helps
