Windows 8.1 Upgrade Only Product Key .ISO file

I recently bought a Windows 8.1 Upgrade Only Product Key for £12.50. I was wondering if there is anyway to get the ISO file from this to install on to a new hard drive without an OS.

While searching through the internet I found this: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/windows-and-office/quick-tip-download-a-new-copy-of-the-windows-8-upgrade-iso/

If I did this method on a Windows 7 PC would that PC stay as Windows 7 and I would be left with the DVD that I could boot to and install on to a different empty drive?

Thanks in advance!

    For a true Windows <whatever> Upgrade version, that invalidates the original OS.

    For instance...having Win 7 installed, buy a Win 8 Upgrade. Install the Upgrade...you cannot use that Win 7 license anymore.

    What you bought from G2A....unknown.
