Updating from windows 8.1 to windows 8.1 pro

Last Modified: 2016-01-10
Can I up date windows 8.1 to windows 8.1 pro with out losing anything?

I have a cd  windows 8.1 pro with wmc that I bought some time ago that I was going to use on my notebook, but it went bad and I had to buy another one, but I thought it had windows 8.1 pro, but it has only windows 8.1 not pro and wmc will only work on pro.
I am not sure I want to do it if I am going to lose information or data.

I don't like windows 10
