Ok Thank You. Was not sure which to install, was going to go with Ultimate so good thing I waited. Ok will let you know as soon as I am done. So I am assuming my OEM key will work with home premium then? Thanks again.

Nevermind on last question, just seen that tool is to use any product key.

Do you have a license for Ultimate or Home Premium? If so you can use those versions. If not, choose the licensed version from the menu which will be provided when you boot into installer that has had it's ISO file unlocked with eicfg removal tool

No, no key. I will have to use the licensed version from the sticker on mine. Never even heard of Win 7 starter SNPC OA.

It is a variant of Starter so should activate with the key on sticker. If not use How To Activate Windows 7 by Phone Step-by-Step Guide.

But first I would attempt to generate Recovery disks as provided by Theog above.

In the worst case you'd have to order Recovery disks if you cannot get it activated due to variance in the installer from SNPC version. I only see installers available for that version via torrents. It is risky to download a torrent installer, but if forced to do so make sure you read the comments and are assured first it has nothing added like an illegal crack or anything else.
