Windows 7: Upgrade to Windows 7 home premium or any other

juniorgeek you say you have a netbook but I can't find which one you have in your post.
Then you say you have 2 gigs of ram and you are using 1.96 gig of ram now.
You also say you would like to install Windows Office.
That boat is not going to float in my opinion.
A netbook is a tinker toy for using on the net for social media and email. It was never designed to do work and in my opinion upgrading the netbook if you could would be a wast of money and time.
Use you netbook for what it was designed for and enjoy it.

I have to agree with Layback Bear for the most part since they are limited devices while simply custom installing different editions was the idea when they were first out for the 7 Starter or Home Premium editions at best. The key there if found is just like any other OEM key as LB pointed out as far as only being good for what came preinstalled. You wouldn't replace one OS for another without the separate key already being available for the next OS.

As far as simply trying ro run just anything you want like you would on a gaming laptop or full desktop the expression of "Forget it!" is what the end result would be. Just getting into a smartbook with the embedded CE 6.0 form of 7 is even worse where IE is stripped down making it almost impossible to log into secure sites! You wouldn't run Photoshop or anything else like CAD on this catagoy of device either.

They are not much more in the long term but a smartphone with the usb port and option to replace one OS for another while still having all the main limitations. When first taking a look at the netbooks when first out I couldn't see spending $300 on one while for a few bucks more you could have a basic laptop with 2b and a 120gb drive to put any OS on provided drivers were available and run some good apps at the same time. I ended up buying a 7 laptop for someone instead which sees constant use!
