    Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center

    If you were to reinstall you would enter the Windows 8 key during the installationa susual, and after installation when adding features you would then enter the Media Center Pack key.

    There should be no issues in this.

    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center/Windows 7

    I think you would probably use the key you got for WMC, that is if you want to re-install that, but you would have to do a clean install with a disk WITH Media Center on it. Or, use your original disk, use your original key, then just re-add WMC, by "adding feature" - Use your WMC key for that, it should let you add it again.

    I believe you download Media Center through widows store and reuse the free key you got for it in December.
