RE: How To Upgrade From Windows XP PRO To Windows 7

XP cannot be upgraded to Windows 7 (or 8 or 10).  It must be a clean install (you can use an "upgrade" version but must bare-metal the installation).

At this point it makes little sense to spend over $100 on an upgrade license for an OS that's on its way out -- particularly given the advanced age of the system.

It would make more sense to put the funds toward a new system that comes with Windows 10.
