Hello and welcome rkbaxi mate could we have a few more details re the system please it is very difficult when one doesn't know what you have inside the machine.

Personally I would have stuck another hard (new) drive in and installed a fresh OEM 7 OS onto that.

There is no upgrade path from XP to Windows 7. See the following article;

Mate I still think you would be better off to get a new drive a bit more RAM and stick an OEM 7 in it would save a lot of grief
