Windows 7: Upgrade from Windows 7 Starter to Ultimate with regular DVD

Upgrade from Windows 7 Starter to Ultimate with regular DVD

I bought an Acer Aspire One netbook with Windows 7 Starter on it, and I have a Windows 7 Ultimate installation DVD that I want to use to upgrade my netbook's OS. I put the DVD into an external DVD drive connected to my netbook with a USB cable and started the installation wizard. I chose the "Upgrade" option and the installer said that I need to use Windows Anytime Upgrade for that. The problem with that is that I don't want to buy a new license, since I already have this DVD. How can I upgrade my netbook's OS from Windows 7 Starter to Ultimate with the DVD I already have?
Thanks in advance.

Use Anytime Upgrade: Type "Anytime" in Start Search box to start the Process, insert your Ultimate Product Key, the extra features will be unlocked in just a few minutes.

Be sure to make your Acer Recovery Disks first, or save a Windows 7 backup image so you have a path back to the licensed OS on that machine. You may decide you want to move your retail Windows 7 Ultimate to another machine. You may also find a cheaper Ultimate Anytime Upgrade key.

Thanks! I'll create the restore CD's right away and then I'll be on my way to Ultimate!
