I have a dilemma - my Netbook has Windows 7 Starter Edition installed. I cannot access it through my LAN & cannopt access the Local Security Policy to grant Administrative rights. Question is - can I safely install Win 7 Professional on a Netbook as it came preloaded with Win 7 Starter for a reason?Any help greatly appreciated!
