How can I upgrade from Windows Media Center to Professional?

The Professional installation disc works when you boot from CD-rom but when the computer is up and running in Media Center and you try to run it from there, when you select upgrade and it asks for a key, it will say "Invalid Key"

Update:

why would they call it Media Center then? I called HP and they said it is totally different.
