    Windows 8 Enterprise


    I have successfully installed the Enterprise version and the Pro version on my Toshi laptop. The enterprise of course won't allow me to input the valid code for the enterprise version, I think it is trying to validate the wrong version.
    The pro version installed after a complete format of the hard disk. The only thing I don't like is that the multimedia is not in it.

    Is there something I can install to get multimedia with the PRO version?

    Technet or MSDN? There are Product codes around that will let you upgrade to add Media Center but they don't pass activation. I found them for the leaked RTM builds. your better off getting official codes from Microsoft if available. I don't have a Technet or MSDN subscription.

    On the Enterprise install open the system page (Windows key + Pause/Break key) and click the blue "View Details in Windows Activation". On the RTM build I tried there was an option on the screen that opened to enter a different product code.

    Update #2. I successfully installed the Enterprise version and validated it, but I had to copy the slmgr.vbs file from the PRO version and then it worked fine. Now I have the enterprise version with sound and all. I gave up on the Pro version.
