both of them did not work. I found out that my system is X86-based PC.
So now I have no idea what to do. Can some one help please.

Microsoft Windows XP

Service Pack 3

Why in the world would you expect a Service Pack for Vista to install on a WinXP machine? Obviously, as it's name makes abundantly clear, Vista's Service Pack 1 is intended to be installed on computers running Vista. IT couldn't possibly be expected to install on any other operating system

If you want Vista SP1, you'll first have to replace the WinXP with Vista.
