Unable to install Windows 7 Home update to Windows Starter

I bought Home Premium 32 bit update (at Office Max) to install on my ASUS 1015 PEM Notebook (upgrading Windows Starter). I'm not having much luck. The program loads, but then stalls at a screen that says something like "Windows compatibility file (on desktop)". It goes no further. Any help?
