You cannot directly upgrade XP to 7. That is, you can't just put the Win 7 disc in, install over XP, and have programs and maybe even user files intact. Back up everything before installing 7, and it would probably be best to wipe the hard drive before installation.

You may need further drivers for your system after installation, but this depends on the hardware in your system.

You may want to check the Windows Upgrade Advisor - it should give you some useful information.

Here is a step-by-step procedure for installing 7 on an XP system.

Hope this helps you out in your endeavor. I wish you a smooth transition. Post back with any further questions.
