Hi tawleedo and Welcome -

Upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7 I find this the better guide to go from XP to Windows 7 (from M/soft).

Regards -

You can't perform a direct upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7 if that is what you are asking. You can possibly replace XP with windows 7. It may also be possible to setup a duel boot consisting of Windows XP and Windows 7.

Considerations for installing Windows 7:

Regards,
Brooks

Upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7<<- is a common Google term.
If you want several links, just copy and paste this term into your Google browser, and there are many ideas.

The one I linked above also contains the; Is your present hardware / software compatible with windows 7 item included in it.
With only 960mb ram I think a dual boot is a bit out of the question at this time, but may be an option later.
You seem to only just have enough space for a single boot now, so I still use my link when I install Win 7 on an XP based unit -
Plenty of good reading material for you in both posts, so please look them over and then make a final decision :wink:

Good luck on your adventure - :)
