Windows 7 Home Basic

also me, Windows 7 Home Basic cant change themes or color schemes. If I upgrade it to Home Premium, May it work? By the way, If I install a Home Premium retail in this machine, will it able to retain the OEM config, i mean, the Acer basic services or do I have to purchase an upgrade from Acer?

Any good Chess games for 7 Starter or Home Basic ?
A friend of mine has Windows 7 Starter and was looking through my system (Ultimate). He loved Chess Titans, but there is no way to use it in Starter (No Aero, Chess Titans will not work without Aero). Are there any good Chess games with comparable looks and brains (preferably free ;)) ?
