Updating from windows xp to windows vista
Before moving forward with the upgrade, you want to make a backup of your files to an external drive, and make sure you have the installation files and product key to reinstall any software after the upgrade.
You could also try to make a full backup of your system, but Windows XP or Windows Vista don’t feature a “reliable” backup tool.
The windows 7 Upgrade advisor application was designed to be a small tool that scans your PC's system, programs and devices to check if it's able to run windows 7.
This means that you’ll have to use another computer running Windows 7/8.1/10 to create the installation media, or you’ll need a third-party tool such as Rufus to create a USB bootable media with the Windows 10 ISO file.

To upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows XP or Windows Vista, you’ll need to do a clean installation using the following steps: After Windows 10 is completely installed, you’ll be presented with the new desktop and all the new features.
At this time, it’s a good idea to go to Windows Update using the Settings app to check for new updates.
