    Windows 8 Pro and Upgrade to Windows 8.1+ Media Center?

    I have just finished building a HTPC. What I am trying to do is install Windows 8 Pro builder version on my new HTPC and then upgrade to Windows 8.1. and then purchase and install Windows Media center?

    My question is in what sequence do I install all this??

    The other question is I want to install windows 8 pro on a raid 0 configuration using 2 Samsung 256GB SSD's. My thinking is that I have to first create the raid 0 config, CTRL+i, then install windows 8 pro on the Raid configuration? I have already set the Sata controller to Raid mode and updated the bios.

    Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Before I install Windows 8 I would like to have the key code for Windows Media Center. I have been waiting for over 2 days for Microsoft to send me the key code. Do I have to have Windows 8 installed and activated before they will send me the key code?
