I bought a netbook that came with windows 7 starter and then bought the 7 professional. I upgraded my professional before authenticating my starter.

Right now, whenever windows 7 claims that my copy isn't genuine as it is not accepting both license keys.

I have so much data and stuff transferred to the netbook, that I was wondering if there is a simple solution to my situation

Give Microsoft a ring. They should be able to sort you out.

You may need to work around the upgrade restrictions in this case. Method #2 worked for me when I had a similar problem.
