Windows 8 Media Center - Product Key no good for Win 8.1 - Why?

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?

SOLVED


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.
