    There is a Pro key and a Core key? The one you use to install has to match the 8 key your going to activate with.

    You can those key.

    Note   Note
    Note that although you may previously purchase a legit Windows 8 product key, the product key is unlikely able to be used to install or upgrade to Windows 8.1. Hence you will need the following product key to initiate the install or upgrade:

    Windows 8 (core): 334NH-RXG76-64THK-C7CKG-D3VPT


    The keys above will let you install 8.1, but that's all it does. After installation is complete, you will still have to activate with your own Windows 8 key.

Windows 8 Product Key doesn't let me download features.
I might be wrong, but I believe for a limited time you can download Media Center as an app until next year. I'm currently running Windows 8 Pro on my PC and is activated. When I enter the Product Key into the ''add features'' bar it says the key won't work. Does this mean Windows 8 Pro can't...
