I'm sorry, but no. No it wont. Anything except starter will crash...

WHY WOULD YOU WANT A NETBOOK TO RUN WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE??? It won't do you ANY good.

netbooks are only useful for websurfing and a couple videos.

I need to install multiple applications that I currently use and Windows Starter cannot support that. The reason why Ultimate is because I own a copy.
