Is it still illegal for US citizens to install a pirated copy of Windows XP or Vista on their machines, considering those windows have reached end of life? Could one get arrested for that? Thanks for any feedback.

Yes. Microsoft holds the copyright and they have not relented on this issue. Is it illegal to pirate a 1979 movie, even though it's old? Yes.
