Don't know what you're asking. Please explain EXACTLY what it is you're trying to do.

what i'm trying to do is to ugrade from XP to Win7. I don't have a retail disc, so I don't know what to do. Also if someway I am able to upgrade to Win7, will Win7 automatically update itself? or will I have to update it manually? :crazy:

There is no direct upgrade path from XP to W7. First, you need to make sure your system is W7 compatible (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=20). If it is, you need to purchase a Windows 7 dvd and do a CLEAN INSTALL (unless you dual boot, everything on your system will have to be deleted and all programs will have to be reinstalled).

As for updates, I assume you mean regular Windows Updates? If so, W7 is no different from any other version of Windows. All have updates available for download and installation on a regular basis.
