Windows 8 MAKs are not supported in Windows 8.1 RTM.  You'll need to wait to receive new MAKs through MSDN/VLSC.

Will it "wait" until that or stop working?

MAKs are available on VLSC, I have 3 of them, however Enterprise VL SKUs are not available for download yet.

 

What you can do however, is "downgrade" your Win8 Enterprise install via a registry trick + Win8Pro 'upgrade', then upgrade that Win8 Pro to Win8.1 Pro (works fine, I did it with my own keys and ISOs). All in All it takes 25 minutes on a fast machine.

 

The only post upgrade tasks I had were : reinstalling my USB3 boost drivers from Asus, and reinstall the latest Catalysts, everything else stayed unchanged through the upgrades

Thanks, but the thing is that I have already upgraded my W8 Ent to W8.1 Ent.

Can you elaborate on that, please? What kind of truck are you talking about?

What exactly are you wanting us to tell you? What are you aiming for? You have installed an OS that by all purposes doesn't have keys for it yet... particularly an Enterprise version that likely requires KMS or a MAK key that is only for enterprise clients. Maybe wait until keys are released or your work supports it.

You will have to upgrade your volume license server to V6 when it's released. If you're looking for another way to activate Windows other than going through Microsoft this is not the place to discuss it.

If you're using an enterprise edition you need to contact your volume licensing manager for new keys. We do not allow posting of activation bypassing.
