Problem in restoring Windows 7 Starter


I have a Toshiba NB 200 Netbook. I had decided to upgrade my starter to ultimate the problem is, it slows down my netbook. I want to go back to just using windows 7. Its windows 7 starter edition. I want to restore in starter edition but I don't want to lose any files in my netbook.

Now here is the problem.
-I have a netbook which does not come with a cd drive; nor do I have an external.
-I do have the serial key for windows 7 starter located on the bottom of my netbook.
-Finally which really ticks me off is when I bought my netbook I have now come to realize that it did or DOES NOT HAVE A RECOVERY PARTITION.

Any advice on how I can reinstall windows 7 starter without reformatting my netbook?
Thank You
