    I'm quite sure this is not illegal since the upgrade is automatic and happens without a choice.

    I had starter on my netbook and tried upgrading it by using the app on the OS itself but failed.

    One day I was searching for TV tuners and came across Media Portal. During the course of the installation it tells you it is better to have windows aero enabled for "tear" effects. I dismissed the dialog and installed it.

    I check the OS later and voila it's upgraded, apps such as windows media center and all games like chess titans etc came out of nowhere. Also all the themes etc. I checked SYSTEM and found the OS name changed to home premium from starter.
    Try it !
