Media Center on Windows 10 Technical Preview

I used my Windows 8.1 product key to add Media Center to Windows 10 Technical Preview. Now the System Properties show that I have “Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center”, and it says that Windows is not activated.

Hi, 

We apologize for not catching this before we launched Tech Preview; we did not intend for you to be able to use a purchased product key on a preview build.

We do not recommend adding Media Center to Windows 10 Technical Preview as using a purchased product key will also prevent you from getting updates and future builds for Windows 10 Technical Preview.

To make sure you get updates for Tech Preview, we recommend that you download the ISO file and perform an in-place upgrade to re-install Windows 10 Technical Preview.
