If you're looking for a free solution...no. You can purchase any version of Windows 7 you wish.

Here is the link for MS in case you are looking to purchase you can either have it sent to you or downloaded to install:

Microsoft Store Online - Windows Anytime Upgrade: Windows 7 Starter to Home Premium - Buy and download from Microsoft Store

Edit: sorry for mistake the anytime upgrade can be done without disk

Not sure if you need this since you have Starter, but you might want to try this as well in case starter was put on the system for low system requirements:

You should also tell the experts that you were talking about a mini netbook Win7 Starter.

Hi Jo, from what I see in your specs, it may be possible to upgrade to Windows 7 Home. Your expereince may be lackluster though. Run the Upgrade advisor Thorsen posted.

In my honest opinion I think you'd be making a mistake trying to upgrade your netbook.

Whilst what you've got is fine for e-mailing and surfing the Internet, it's low RAM and graphics would prevent or slow down tasks such as photo and video editing.

By all means, run the Windows Ugrade Advisor, but I think you're better off to save up and buy a performance laptop rather than upgrade your netbook.

This might not be of any use to you, but I suggest installing Ubuntu or Linux Mint onto your netbook. It would run much faster than with Windows 7.

I agree with you Slash that it would be faster for the netbook than Win7, but it has a bit of a learning curve if youve never seen Linux systems.

Edit: not to say its not possible, just would need a bit of resources on how to navigate Ubuntu or Mint
