    first thing is to call the seller unless it is not an official/legit seller. If the latter is the case then you will need to move to plan B which is to check the version you have, determine if it is untouched and whether a fresh install is needed.

    Bought from a shop or an individual? If a shop, Microsoft would be interested, Enterprise should only be seen in a corporate environment.

    You'll need to either replace it with a retail/oem version, or find a way to activate Enterprise with a KMS server. Quite a lot of info available here for both methods, just start by reading the sticky threads.
