Please elaborate your system version with rollups & libraries you are using because based on the type of libraries we can decide upgrade paths:
1. if you are using PCDL then you have upgrade each levels of system version to upgrade each levels of PCDL like xA4.1-xA5.0 Sp2-xA5.1 Revisions/FPs.
You can't upgrade directly to Xa5.1 from xA4.1.
2.If you are using System libraries other than SB2 libraries then you can upgrade directly from xA4.1 to 5.1.
Before taking the 4.1 version back up ensure the following:
1.xA4.1 ru5d or later to be done.
2.DM/PM applications(like autocad, etc) needs Ebinstance so sql engine server should run in the primary aspect server.
3.Always take backup from the PriAS only.
After taking backup ensure you to get new license for the system & you have to use windows 2008 32bit /64 bit according to your machine but always prefer to go with 64bit OS.
Here you ensure same system softwares are installed before start restoring the backup.
