Hello,
I have a sony vaio netbook with W7 starter but it is in Spanish! I have W7 ultimate on my external HD and want to replace the W7 starter on the sony with the full ultimate version. What is the best way to do it?

buy a real laptop..... netbooks are horrible at running full win7, thats why they only run win 7 starter edition on them.

Providing that the OS on the external works completely fine, and that the Hdd's are the same size... you can just switch them, and complete a update to retrieve your drivers.

However this would probably involve voiding your warranty, and cracking open the external HDD. Get some more feedback before you make a final decision.

I copied the installation disc to the external hard drive as there is no optical drive on the netbook. It is a full working copy which will install from setup.
