If you were able to create a full system image backup of the Starter edition you could simply restore the image when going to replace the other Windows install. Most preinstalls on netbooks should see a recovery partition as well as utilty to create recovery media.
I have to agree with NoelDP about possibly contacting the manufacturer as well to see if they would send out a recovery media in some form for the Starter edition. That's one of the editions however included in gregrocker's guide on Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
If they do ship out a Starter edition dvd you wouldn't simply be able to pop the disk in and perform a clean install of that edition. You would need to create a USB Installation Key. USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create
If you haven't made any changes already the smart move now however would be creating a full system image of the netbook's drive to retain everything it comes with. You would need an external drive however or one in a usb enclosure to store the image on.
