    Welcome to CrackBerry! I moved your thread to the appropriate sub-forum.

    Far as I know, you'll need to either run a dual boot with MS, or borrow a computer from a friend/family member.

    If you are using it on someone elses computer and want it on your own you can install VirtualBox for linux and run a copy of xp on there. To upgrade your OS on the phone go into Desktop manager and device/update. If there are any available updates they will be listed.
