Sorry, but you cannot do a inplace upgrade from XP to Windows 7.
You could upgrade from XP to Vista, then Vista to Windows 7. However, you would be asking for a lot of unknown issues and problems that would most likely hit you from doing that.
I would recommend doing a custom install instead. This way it places all of the files from XP into the C:\Windows.old folder in your new clean install of Windows 7. After the Windows 7 installation is complete, you can copy any files you want back from the C:\Windows.old folder into Windows 7. You will still have to reinstall all drivers and programs though.
Hope this helps,
