Oh. No, I didn't even consider that, in fact I didn't even know it was possible. I'll definately give that a crack - thanks theog.

Congrats, Golden.

I have a machine with a 1.0 GHz AMD Thunderbird processor plus 512 MB of RAM, and I've sometimes wondered how well 7 would run on that box.

I've got it running on an Athlon XP 2400+ with 1.5GB RAM. It worked fine with only 1GB until I found a spare stick when I did my Spring cleaning earlier this Summer.

(Yes, I meant to say that last part - shoot me, I'm slow...)

Update.....

I continue to tinker with this dinosaur. I've now learn't to resize and add partitions (using Partition Wizard 7), installed Linux Mint 11 in a dual boot (using EasyBCD), and she is still going strong.

Big thank you to Dave76 for his help with PW7 and EasyBCD.

I wonder what I could do next.....
