That has nothing to do with a Recovery to ex-factory state.
Please try the Recovery process.

Hye guys, I found out the reason why I can't upgrade my computer to Home premium. It's because according to a technician, Netbooks are only built for the version they have. The aren't suited for upgrading, which makes them secondary. Thanks for the help though you guys.

Who told you that? There are plenty of netbooks with Home Premium.

There could be plenty of them but that isn't what I meant. I mean if they are built with home premium, then they most likely aren't built enough to upgrade to higher versions of windows. Mines is windows 7 starter, and it's only built for starter, even with the windows anytime upgrade. And an Office Depot Technician.

I know what you meant, and I would believe your own upgrade advisor test,



Over an Office Depot Tech who would probably rather sell you a new laptop, of course that may be want you want anyway.

derekimo knows what he's talking about. Before I knew anything about computers, I asked an Office Depot wroker if I could upgrade my frineds starter netbook to home premium. He said no, but I could buy a new laptop. I went on my friends laptop, entered his Home Premium product key, and he was upgraded. Don't listen to Office Depot workers.

Yea well that sucks 714.. sorry..I've been entering the code for the last 2 weeks. And I'm not buying shit from Office Depot.

Derekimo if my upgrade tests say I can then why is it that I won't upgrade then..

I know it sucks, and if I were you, I'd be pretty if I were you. Did you reinstall the OS? If so, then you just have a P.O.S. computer.
