I see you're in the UK so I'm assuming you have an "N" edition copy of Windows 7 Starter. On the bottom of that page it says it's compatible with:

Quote:
  • Supported Operating Systems: Windows 7
Windows 7 Starter N, Windows 7 Home Premium N, Windows 7 Professional N, Windows 7 Enterprise N, Windows 7 Ultimate N, Windows 7 Starter KN, Windows 7 Home Premium KN, Windows 7 Professional KN, Windows 7 Enterprise KN, Windows 7 Ultimate KN
So yes, it would work.

The N means it doesn't come with media player and other things because of an EU decision. Don't worry, just install it.

Easy to check!

If you can play a file and the windows media player open, you don't need this upgrape!
