Derekimo if my upgrade tests say I can then why is it that I won't upgrade then..
PLEASE just do the restore to factory conditions, and then retry the upgrade.

YOU WILL GET NO FURTHER until you have done that.

If you still could not resolve the Anytime Upgrade problem. I suggest you do the following.

Anytime upgrade key will work for both 32 bit and 64 bit systems. Eventhough you have a netbook, with proper upgrade key you can make the Windows 7 starter edition to either HP, Professional or even Ultimate.

Remove the Anytime upgrade key from registry at

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsAnytimeUpgrade\

Reboot the system and check your netbook is activated and validated. Now try the Anytime Upgrade Procedure again. Make sure your system is on internet while you are doing the upgrade process. Otherwise the Upgrade will fail.

I'm guessing this isn't a proper key or something. It still failed. Windows is activated. Hell, I can give you the old Product key (the one I returned) and the Win 7 Starter one just to make sure that it is genuine.
