    First of all there is no "upgrade" option for Windows XP to Windows 7. Anyhow, you need to do installation of Windows 7 from scratch by backing up all of your files in Windows XP. Just make sure that you take the note of the localtion of network drives and after the installation of Windows 7, you need to map those drives again.
    Good luck.

    A username and password is required

    you can use net use x: \\computername\sharename

    or the explorer interface ..
