Migrating from Windows XP to Microsoft Windows 7 isn’t easy because Microsoft has only built a migration path from Vista to Windows 7. Microsoft is expecting that most of the XP users are going to to replace their older Windows XP PCs with Windows 7 computers but for this your PC or laptop must have the hardware requirements to run Windows 7 on it.

There are some different methods to get to Windows 7 without buying an entirely new PC.
Use the User State Migration Tool:

This is an application developed by Microsoft so that you can migrate your user profile from Windows XP to Microsoft Windows 7 installation. But beware because this is a anticipated tool. To see how to upgrade PC using this User State Migration Tool, you can watch a 12 minute video on TechNet that explains the steps exactly.

Use Windows Easy Transfer:
Using Windows Easy Transfer you can copy files and settings from one computer to another, but this applications does not allows you to copy files from one installation of Windows to another on the same PC. Microsoft has designed a new application that allows you to use Easy Transfer to upgrade in-place on the same computer and they have explained this process in a five minute video.

Use a LapLink cable:
You can also use a $20 cable in-place of using any upgradation application. This is same as that of Microsoft’s Windows Easy Transfer approach.
