Hello and Welcome to Windows 7 support forum.
Your system is compatable with Windows 7 operating system.
Since you are coming from XP you will need to perform a custom install which will format your hard drive. A reminder to back up all essential files B4 you perform the installation is advised.
Insert your Windows 7 dvd into the drive and reboot and then when asked use the custom installation option and then the installation should begin.
