1. all you have to do is to backup any files you cannot afford to lose, make sure you have serial numbers and keys for any programs you have installed.
2. place the winxp upgrade into your cd drive
4. press any key
5. follow the on screen instructions.
remember there will be times where the screen looks like its frozen, do not do anything but wait. Its working.

you need a legal version of xp for us to give any more help. You cannot use oem from another computer, you can use an upgrade version or a full retail version of xp as long as they are not installed on another computer or being used for justification to upgrade to vista.
