When it is stated that windows 7 home premium is an upgrade to windows 7 starter,does that mean that the home premiun cannot upgrade Vista?

I don't understand the question above, but to answer your question in
the subject line, " What is the difference between Windows 7 and
Windows 7 Starter?" the Windows 7 Starter Edition is not a different
operating system, it's just one kind of Windows 7. And it's the lowest
level edition, so you can upgrade from it to a higher level such as
Windows 7 Home Edition.
