No, it's not possible. It would be a violation of the license, if it even worked. You have a CoA for XP Media Center Edition.

There is no such thing as a "corporate" version of any Windows Operating System, that is a term hackers and pirates came up with for site licenses, purchased by corporations, schools and government bodies etc.

Any form of XP will probably install and activate,but like Tigsounds stated it is illegal to do so.
