    Waiting for my key. 24 hours it said. Oh well. Don't really need WMC though, but it would be just nice to have it there though once installed.

    Hi there
    This won't install on W8 Enterprise.

    Not that I need it but I'd thought I'd just test it anyway.

    So unlike W7 where Ultimate was the "Retail version" of Enterprise and included all the PRO functions too W8 PRO is different to W8 Enterprise. In otherwords W8 Enterprise isn't necessarily a "Superset" containing W8 Pro's features as well as its own additions.


    Cheers

    Media Center isn't compatible with the Enterprise version. Here's an old comparison but it's a valid one:

    Windows 8 Enterprise provides all the features in Windows 8 Pro (except the ability to install the Windows Media Center add-on), with additional features to assist with IT organization (see table below). This edition is available to Software Assurance customers, as well as MSDN and Technet Professional subscribers, and was released on August 15, 2012.

Free Media Centre Pack Offer in General Support
Hi all Just received my free Media Centre Pack Key and I'm a little confused, hope someone can help. It states in the email with the key that it must be activated by 1st of Feb 2013. I'm wondering what will happen after that date if you do a clean install and you need to use the key again. ...
