Regarding downgrading from Windows 8 pro media center version to Windows 8 pro version.
Posted on 2013-02-01
I have right now installed Windows 8 pro 64-bit media center version. It is displaying an activation error. I have a Windows 8 pro key based on my Technet subscription from Microsoft. When I enter the key, the system is not accepting the Windows 8 pro key as right now I have Windows 8 pro with Media Center installed in my PC.
Is there any method to downgrade my OS to Windows 8 pro by uninstalling the Media Center. I read in some forums that downgrade of OS is not possible and I need to re-install the Windows 8 pro OS. By re-installing the OS, I will lose all my applications and I need to spend time re-installing all my software and applications.
Is there any method to downgrade the OS from Windows 8 pro media center to Windows 8 pro without re-installation of the OS. My present system only accepts Windows 8 pro media center keys but I have a Windows 8 pro key which I need to activate but the system is not accepting the Windows 8 pro key.
Please help me resolve this issue.
Thanks and Regards,
