Depends on your ability, what you mean by "load," whether you have a genuine Windows 7 installation DVD, the computer's specs, and the availability of Windows 7 drivers for the computer. What were your results of running the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor?

I have the original Windows 7 operating system disc, and the Drivers disc. How do I wipe XP off the computer, and replace it with windows 7?

The simple answer is that you boot to the Windows 7 installation DVD, when you see an option something like "advanced disk options" you click on it, and proceed to format the partition that now has XP and then install 7 to that partition.

But I don't understand what you mean by "original Windows 7 operating system disc" or what "the Drivers disc" contains (I understand "drivers" but I do not understand what versions).
