reactivate online upgrade

I recently purchased a Samsung N140 with W7 starter edition, after a week I used the Online upgrade to install the Home premium edition, which installed with no problems.

The problem I have is the netbook came with a restore partition, so if I have to do a complete restore, it will take me back to the Starter edition.

Apart from using Acronis to be able to restore the Home Premium edition, is there any other way, I have the upgrade key written down, but do not know if I could upgrade again from a fresh Starter Edition reinstall.

Any advice would be welcome.

Yes you can use the upgrade again, but you are better off using Acronis to create a "System Image" after you have upgraded, this will then be your quick and valid path to a fresh install baseline. Additional and frequent Acronis backups will keep you from loosing too much data.
