Windows 10 Pro X64

See here: Upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7

Click on Step 4 then go to the bottom and click on To install a 64-bit version of Windows 7 on a computer running a 32-bit version of Windows XP

You can follow all the steps if you also want to preserve data and existing settings where possible.

You can't upgrade from XP to 7 at all. It has to be a clean install of Win 7.
