Windows Server 2019 Datacenter ROK

Our company bought Windows Server 2019 Datacenter ROK license (16 Core). It will be installed on Citrix VM. I now, that this license must lock BIOS for reading settings. We downloaded ISO from Microsoft and try to activate Server, but got an error - The Software Licensing Service reported that the product SKU is not found

Quetsion: can we download ISO image of Windows Server 2019 Datacenter and activate them with that licesne or we need to install Windows Server from DVD?

Thak you....
