I Purchased Windows 8 Media centre for Windows 8 x32
Upgraded my machine to Windows 8.1 x64 and product key doesn't work - do I need to buy a new key?
Talked to those nice people on the Microsoft Help Chat.
Told them the problem.
They agreed that the Key was valid.
They took control of my screen - checked out if there were updates pending (there were 2 - KB2887595 & KB2883200) - installed - rebooted......
And after 2 re-boots - as if by magic - my Windows Edition became "Windows 8.1 Pro With Media Centre".
How it happened , I can't say :) , but problem solved.
