Media Center is gone and not coming back. Try uninstalling Media Center and then try again to upgrade to Windows 8.1

To check, open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and run systeminfo.

The Windows version will show there in the first several lines.

John,

Yes, we ran the systeminfo and our version is as the image sent.

Also, went into Control Panel to try uninstalling Media Center and there is no option.

In order to install 8.1 we have to first uninstall Media Center?

n2fc,

After the registry, it display same as our image but your tweak gave us the build "Windows 8 Pro with Media Center Build 9200":

To understand, in order to upgrade to 8.1, we have to to MS Store (your link)?

The 8.1 upgrade is not download via the Windows "Check for Update"?
Maybe it was a version that cannot be upgraded.

What do you see in Windows Updates when you run that?

Windows 8.1 was a different operating system to Windows 8. It was not a service pack.

Go to Microsoft Downloads and see if you can download the Windows 8.1 ISO to run on your system.
