Media Center 2005 is XP pro with some enhancements and sp2 is allready included.
The upgrade should work, but personally I would just reformat if you have a second drive to backup things you want to save. I've never had much success with upgrading windows versions.
A lot of programs won't run after the upgrade unless they're reinstalled anyway.
You may end up with drivers and libraries lying around that you won't need or versions that are outdated, sometimes making everything less stable when you make "windows sausage" mixing the old and new installs.

Anyway. You should have a working OS for the most part if you upgrade.
Good luck.
