XP will not upgrade to Windows 8

I purchased the upgrade for Windows 8 thinking all would be easy and fast.

After much research and time, I have come to the conclusion that XP just won't upgrade unless you have a 64 bit system Is this true?

Can I add 32 bit to the present machine and use the upgrade that I have already purchased.

Should I just get a new PC? Can this machine be made useful and secure on the internet?

Ist dies eine gute Frage?

Please clarify - what is Windows 10? Do you mean Windows 8? (latest released version)

I apologize - yes, I mean Windows 8 - I was getting the Microsoft Office Windows 10 confused with this situation.

Please review the systems quick spec sheet I posted above to locate what your exact model is.

Most of this series is not able to run Windows 8. You might be able to get one of the Core 2 Duo based systems but you'll need to upgrade your memory & graphics board.

Review this MS Windows Upgrade help FAQ: Upgrade to Windows 8.1 from Windows Vista or Windows XP. Make sure you check your hardware fully.

Given the cost of a new system with Windows 7 or 8 already installed you may want to think about getting a new system Vs trying to upgrade this system to either Windows 7 or 8.

Thanks Dan!! I appreciate it so much - I was thinking that the hardware needed to make this machine "work" with win 8 might be expensive. I am about to have to have a long sick leave from work and was thinking that I could tinker around with this system while I am out and maybe upgrade myself. Thanks again.

These computers are not exactly fit for Windows 7. It'll do it but it will struggle. I would get a off-lease or refurbished business system instead of spend money on this system getting it Windows 7 ready.

Even installing a GPU is a lost cause. These only take ADD2 cards, which run off of the iGPU and give you a DVI connection. These are not dedicated cards; they only add ports to the system. I found this out because I had to look into it for mine.

I agree Nick - Both Windows 7 and 8 required much more CPU, memory & GPU to run effectively.

This system will work with Windows 7, 32 bit. You'll still be able to use it until 2020. Upgrade Ram to at least 2GB. You can buy Win 7 Home Premium on Amazon or eBay.

First of all you can not upgrade your os directly from XP to windows 8.1. you can only install a fresh os. But your machine should be compatible with 64 bit.

If you have not then you need to get a new machine.

You can not upgrade xp to 8 as xp doesn't recognize iso files, you will have to install a whole new operation system via disc or usb.
