But i need to install it through usb and the only isos are windows 8.1 ones and i have a windows 8 key
create a bootable USB from the ISO, there's a number of programs that can do it relatively quickly.
Again, windows 8.1 is just Windows 8 with updates, so as long as your Windows 8 key is legit you're good.
but what you CAN do is download windows 8, install it with your key, then update to 8.1.
