The only way to properly upgrade is to upgrade to vista first, then 7. But people say that aint reccommended.

With XP you have to clean install, there is no upgrade path from XP to 7

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

There is no direct upgrade path from XP to Windows 7 and that is essentially what the error is telling you. A custom install is supported but it does not preserve applications. To do an upgrade that preserves applications you would have to first install Vista. A double upgrade of such an old OS is often troublesome.
