Can windows 8.1 enterprise N be installed for Home Use.

I recently bought a laptop an acer aspire e1-531.It came with windows 8 enterprise N and I would like to upgrade to windows 8.1 but it s not available in windows store so I tried to download it from Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC). But you need an need to be registered as an IT pro. Is there a way I can download it for home use not for a company.

System Specs

Intel Pentium B960 2.2GHz,
Intel HD Graphics,
4GB DDR3 Ram,

You can't use VLSC if you are not a company employee.
If you can't see the 8.1 upgrade on the store that can be because your current version is not up-to-date. You need to install the latest update packages for 8 before installing 8.1
Go to your update settings and activate automatic update. Or do that manually.
You can find how to do that here:
The update package KB 2871389 needs to be installed before you can get 8.1
