The Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant doesn't run on XP, it only works on Win 7. I just recently tried that.

It runs on XP for me. (And, I don't need help figuring out how to add more RAM or hard drive space; this is a machine in VirtualBox.)

From the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant site:

If you're running Windows XP, you need to have Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) installed to use Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant.

I didn't mention SP3 'cause your Computer specs say you have SP3. Different machine?
