Windows 7: Win 7 Starter Won't Hotspot With iPhone

Win 7 Starter Won't Hotspot With iPhone

I have Win 7 Starter on an Akoya/Median Netbook and I can't get the system to accept my iPhone as an internet 'Hotspot' either in Bluetooth, or with the USB cable.

I have Vista and XP on other machines and it was relatively easy to setup.

What's my problem? I'm not getting any error messages.

Are you sure the hotspot feature is enabled on your phone? Has it ever worked before?

Yes it works with a laptop running Vista and a netbook running XP but I can't get it to work in a Win 7 Starter netbook.
