Where did you get Win7 Ultimate? How is the disk burned?

You already own for the life of the PC a license for Starter version. There is a reason your PC is limited to Starter having to do most likely with hardware limitations. So for best performance my suggestion is to access Starter as provided in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 then follow those steps to get and keep a perfect install.
