    I assume you will be using a USB drive to install windows on a netbook, just delete the ei.cfg file from the sources folder and boot into the installation. You'll be able to select the Starter edition.

    No, you cannot convert 64 bit to 32 bit. Both are different.

    If you have 64 bit install media, then it will not have Starter edition.

    Starter is exclusively 32 bit edition.

    I thought netbooks don't have cd drives and USB was the order of the day
