You can install Windows 8.1 as an upgrade for free thru windows store. Don't think the key will work for fresh install. Install 8 use the key then upgrade.

Normally it could be, but you have to install the same version (standard or pro).

if your retail key is for window 8 ,not windows 8 Pro, then you need to use generic install key for windows 8 Core

you cannot use windows 8 Core retail key to activate windows 8 Pro
