download one of the following:
Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit
You are going to edit the contents of the .ISO file and remove the ei.cfg file. After editing burn it to a blank DVD disk or put it on a thumb drive. Boot from it, this will reveal all editions of Windows 7, select the Home Basic edition. More information in the following article about how to edit the ei.cfg file
Ei.cfg Removal Utility Lets You Use Any Product Key
we will edit the image and remove the ei.cfg file so we can reveal all editions of Windows 7 during the installation and select Windows 7 Home Basic . Lets take a look at doing it step by step.
After downloading the eicfg removal utility, you need to extract, since its in a .zip file. Just right click it and click Extract All.
Double click the eicfg_remover.exe file to launch it.
Browse to where the Windows 7 Image (.ISO file) is stored, select it and click Open.
Burn the edited image to a blank DVD and proceed to boot from it.
ImgBurn - In addtion to supporting the creation of CD's from .ISO files,
it supports a wide range of other image file formats, and it's free.
(BIN, CUE, DI, DVD, GI, IMG, MDS, NRG, PDI and ISO)
Note: Always use the slowest burn speed (4x or 2x) if offered a choice.
Windows 7 will boot as it normally does into the setup environment, the only difference this time is, you will be given a choice to select the edition of Windows 7 you want to reinstall. Carefully click through during the setup wizard.
Select Windows 7 Home Basic and proceed with the installation as normal. I suggest that you create a backup once the installation is complete.
Once setup is completed, you should have Windows 7 Starter installed. You can enter the product key and activate using the following method:
Click Start, type: CMD'
Right click CMD
Click Run as adminstrator
At the command prompt, type the following commands:
slmgr.vbs -ipk xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx (allows you to replace the current product key with the specified)
xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx - represents your product key
Note: There are several languages and versions (32 bit vs. 64 bit) available. Here are the ISO links via Digital River:
Hope this help.

I would like to tell you that there is no Windows 7 Home Basic trial version now, but you can still download the Windows 7 Enterprise 90-day Trial instead.
In addition, if you have already buy Home Basic from Microsoft Online store, you can contact Microsoft Online store customer service.
Hope this helps.
