Hi amfufu89 :)

I'm sorry, but it's not possible to upgrade Windows XP directly to Windows 7 from a running XP installation. You have to do a clean install which requires you to boot from cd/usb and wipe your entire XP installation including all programs and personal files/settings.

To upgrade your PC from Windows XP to Windows 7, you'll need to select the Custom option during Windows 7 installation. A custom installation doesn't preserve your programs, files, or settings. It's sometimes called a "clean" installation for that reason.


Unfortunately it sounds like you corrupted your installation. More then likely it's beyond fixing.
