Windows 7 Student upgrade

Hi I have a netbook which has Windows 7 starter Pre Installed.I am eligible for the 'Ultimate Steal ' Promotion ( Windows Professional for £30 ). I have looked on FAQ on the site & this promotion is for upgrade of XP/Vista..There is no mention of Windows 7 Starter.Does anyone know if  the upgrade will work if  I purchase it.

Yes, you can use the Windows 7 Professional or Home Premium license distributed through Ultimate Steal Promotion to do an Anytime Upgrade from Windows 7 Starter to either edition you choose. Click Start, type Anytime Upgrade, follow the onscreen wizard, enter the Windows 7 Professional or Home Premium (whichever you purchase) key when requested, click and restart your computer when prompted. Within 10 mins, you should be upgraded to whichever edition of Windows 7 you choose and your files and settings preserved
