I've tried downloading Ubuntu 12.10 once before, but was unable to for some unknown reason. I only have Windows 7 starter edition- could that be the problem?

That cannot be the problem. You can definitely use Ubuntu with Windows 7. – green Feb 10 '13 at 9:23

How can that be the problem? You can install any operating system you want in your hard drive, given that it has enough free space. Just back up your files!
