You can't update XP to 10, only to Vista.
You would be better off dumping XP and updating 7 which is supported.

That would not be free unless he supplies a qualifying 7, 8 or 8.1 key.

I believe the op was wanting to update x-p to win-8 not 10 but I doubt it makes much difference ?

I pulled this off a win-8 upgrade note but if the system spec's are there a clean install of 8 should work if you out and out buy a oem/ system builders copy of 8 with a activation key

So then, buy Windows 8 and install it on the XP partition.

Better yet, buy a drive for 8. Unplug the 7 drive during the install.

But you will hate 8, so why bother ????
