Is it possible to upgrade windows XP to windows 7
If you are asking could you upgrade directly from Windowx XP to Windows 7 as a direct upgrade, the answer is yes but it's not recommended.
The much better method is to use Windows Easy Transfer to move your important files from your computer onto an external hard drive. After all your files are backed up safely, it's best to start the Windows 7 install and when you get to the "Upgrade" or "Custom (advanced)" screen to choose Custom. This will open up the drive view. Click on "Drive options (advanced)" which will bring up the ability to delete the partitions.
If you find that you have more than one shaded area in the Drive 0 bar, you have more than one partition. Unless you have experience creating and modifying partitions, only delete the partitions on Disc 0 which are marked Drive (C:). Otherwise, you can decide what partitions you need to delete to make enough room for Windows 7.
I'm not sure if you've already done your homework or not but before you upgrade to Windows 7, run the update advisor to ensure your system and software is Windows 7 ready and make sure to collect the hardware drivers that work with the exact version of Windows 7 you are installing... 32 bit and 64 bit are totally different monsters!!!
Having all of your software install disks on hand, and all your backups (and a bootable copy of the backup software!!) and Windows 7 hardware drivers on an external hard drive is the best way to approach an upgrade.
Best of luck!! Hope this helps.
