Minor question, upgrading to 8.1 works like a service pack? You don't lose anything, not even drivers?

Just FYI I was able to upgrade fully, using the "provided" key, then using my Retail key afterwards to activate. It gave me this options running the setup from Windows 8.0

How did you get the option to keep your programs and settings? Mines is only offering personal files. :(

Are running Windows 8 Pro or Windows 8 Pro with Media Center?

Windows 8 Pro with Media Center.

 

I think the problem here is your trying to install Windows 8 Pro, on a Windows 8 Pro with Media Center coded OS.

 

Try this: Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion

 

Change EditionID to "Professional" and ProductID to "Windows 8 Pro"

 

Then run setup again, see what it offers. You will obviously lose Media Center, but I think you can then use your MCE key after to activate and it will also reinstall MCE.

 

And P.S. write down the existing settings first just in case.

Yes the media center key will work again to activate and install the MCE.

Weird... you could always do the above steps, us a Windows 8 Pro ISO and re install with the keeping apps/settings/files, that will take away MCE, then do the Windows 8.1 install.
