Had Windows 7 Starter which has limitations and after reviewing what I wanted for my Netbook, Windows 7 Home Premium suited my needs. Really simply to install and have had no problems after installation.

This review is not of the Upgrade from Starter to Home Premium - I am confident that when it works it works well (I have full 7 Home Premium on another PC and I like it a lot).

What I purchased here, from eZee Trade, fulfilled by Amazon, was an Upgrade Licence. This is the product I am reviewing.

I followed the instructions carefully, entered the given key, it verified it, I accepted the licence terms, started the upgrade. After several minutes of upgrading I got a message "Enter A Different Upgrade Key. The upgrade key you entered is for an edition of Windows which does not work with Windows Anytime Upgrade. Enter a different upgrade key".

I clicked OK and verified I had entered the given key correctly. Started upgrade again, same outcome. I repeated this twice more, giving a total of 4 failed attempts.

I clicked on the Amazon Returns button, got return labels and promise of refund.

I can live with Starter on the netbook, but it's a pity this didn't work.

The net book came with a limited version of 7 home but the hardware was capable of running the full version. Installed no problem so I am very pleased indeed with the purchase.

Product key was not suitable for Windows 7 Stater. No UK telephone number was supplied for the support. The number listed on the product were for US and Canada.

It wasted my time try to install the product and to take the package to post office to send back to Amazon.

I bought this product in July and tried to install it but it said it wouldn't install. I gave up and rebooted my netbook and it showed that the software had installed. In August, following an update attempt I got a black screen with a message that indicated the software wasn't genuine and suggested I try to activate it again and when I did I got a further message saying that the software was a counterfeit. This didn't happen until after the 30 days so I couldn't return it and had to contact the manufacturer - still not got a replacement or my money back!
Disappointed is not the word for how I feel.

I wish I had seen this before - I just paid £70 to do it via the link on the netbook. The upgrade is definitely worth doing - I found Starter to be very glitchy and not perform that well. At first I thought it was just the combination of an atom processor with Windows 7, but after the upgrade to Home Premium it is SO much better - everything seems smoother and works better. It's like having a full-sized laptop in a small netbook - nice! Performance speed is about the same - not slower, or faster - but smoother. Aero is really nice to have and the main reason I upgraded was because our son wanted chess titans on it! The other improvements are a big bonus. I reckon you need 2GB of ram as well. If space is an issue - my Starter system with all Windows updates done (as of March 2014) was about 16.5GB - after the Home Premium upgrade it increased to approx 19GB. Space is an issue for me as only have a 32GB SSD but am happy to lose a couple of GB for the benefits of Home Premium and will get an SD card.

I nearly returned it as Microsoft said the product key was invalid and it wasn't until I turn the computer off that the upgrade installed.
