I am receiving the following error when creating the Business Intelligence Center site collection. From what I can tell the Performance Point feature is installed and activated so I am not sure why this error is showing. Thanks for the help.

Feature with Id '8581a8a7-cf16-4770-ac54-260265ddb0b2' is not installed in this farm, and cannot be added to this scope.

I believe this is the SharePoint Enterprise Site Collection feature, which pulls in various other enterprise features when it is activated. Check that this feature is activated (you will of course need to have the Enterprise SKU).

Also you might want to check your upgrade status in Central Administration and if necessary run the Configuration Wizard again.
