Can I change a product key?

Now, this is a strange situation. I while back a friend of mine gave me a Windows 7 Ultimate key because he said he didn't need it. I plugged it into Windows Anytime Upgrade and it started to verify and upgrade. Half way through the process I cancelled the upgrade because I remembered "oh, yeah. my computer sucks." I thought that my computer would suffer massive performance hit from upgrading. By the way it's an Acer Aspire One D250 netbook with Windows 7 starter. My question is, if I buy a Windows 7 Home Edition key can I use that instead because every time I go to Anytime Upgrade it just tries to install Ultimate automatically. Can I cancel the upgrade in place for something else? Should I forget about it completely or should I just go through with the Ultimate upgrade? Can my computer handle Windows 7 Ultimate?

Specs:
CPU: Intel N270 with 1.6 GHZ
GPU: Intel 945 Chipset Family with GMA 950
Ram: 2 gigs

If it is a key from ebay or an auction site it is probably not genuine!You have anytime upgrades and express upgrade keys which one is it ?

Just use the 7 ultimate key on the atom machine. Get a 32 bit version. Home premium and ultimate have same system requirement.
