    How Can I Burn Windows 8 Media Center


    Hello, I haven't installed Windows Media Center yet but yes I got the free key ect. I'm in the process of getting a new PC and then I will install but in the meantime I would like to burn to a DVD. How can I do this?

    Thanks!

    Where you getting the PC from?

    Custom build or is it in the process of being shipped?

    Reason I ask is if it's being custom built, tell them to install it ASAP before delivering to you.

    If you don't install and activate by 31st they key expires, as pcRat said. there's no other way.

    I received an email today reminding me to install WMC before January 31. I have already done so some weeks ago.

    Let's repeat: if you get one of the free keys (for Win8 Pro owners), it must be used to activate WMC by Feb 1, 2013. The key will be worthless in one week (from today, 25 January). In fact, if I should need to re-install Win8 after that, I'd have to buy a new WMC key.

    It's not as generous a freebie as I'd hoped.

    Sounds like a good system backup is in order.
