    I picked up a S100 with 7 Starter and would like to upgrade to Home Premium. Im guessing the Starter is an OEM (NOT Lenovo) because everytime I go near it with the Lenovo key, it fails to update. I have spent an hour or so searching for suggestions on how to do the upgrade, and found plenty of info for the factory version, but nothing for OEM (builders) any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Why don't you opt for a clean install??

    Tito,
    I guess I could, unfortunately all I have is the Ultimate self install dvd, as well as several HP COA's available at this time.

    Awesome! Then just do a clean install using latest MSDN ISO (why Home Premium? Choose Ultimate), install Lenovo cert & key & (optionally) update it.

    :)

    This little unit would choke horribly on ultimate. ATOM processor and only 1 gig of memory (2 gig on the way). No way am I going near ultimate on it.

    Thanks

    Update
    It runs OK on ultimate, not great but usable.

    Now if I could get rid of the bloody White List.
