Wds 7 32.bit Ultimate

I sugest $100.00 to upgrade will make it work .."Kinda OK ..."

$40.00 ...1 stick of 1GB Ram
$60.00 ... new 250GB.7200 or 5400 rpm HDD ..

I did this for one very old laptop ...with
Intel Celeron 1.4Ghz .."single core" ..Intel 945 Graphic chip set ..
-1.25 GB ram(Just added) and 80GB Hdd .

As I posted in another thread ...:
Do not expect it to run windows Aero ...of any kind "Glass or no glass"
(Then again who needs wds aero..." Maybe i do ...It looks nice ..

Actually theres really nothing wrong with Win2k.
Its XP without all the glitz and would really run great on the OPs system.
But everyone wants the latest and the greatest. I'm no better.
As soon as my Server 2008 r2 disk arrives I will be leaving Win7.
So will my laptop.

Win 7 Ultimate 32bit

I did not read the entire thread, but that system will be ok running 7 with no less than 1G of ram, 2 if it supports it. But I might agree with Aero not working too great,, maybe. The system might be sluggish, but workable.

Install XP otherwise, it will work fine on it also.

Windows 7 Ultimate Edition x64

yea well Like i said. I run windows 7 on my netbook with a 1.6 Ghz Atom, so a 1.6 Ghz Celeron M can't be "that" bad.. but yea the 512mb of ram was the other main concern.. and I've read that 945, or Intel GMA 950 actuall can and will run Aero, it's the 915 that doesn't cuz the WDDM drivers.

but ya. I just went with XP again and it works fine and runs plenty smooth.

Except for the fact that it's no longer maintained with security updates and such.

Your box will run Windows 7 more than the upgrade advisor against it to be sure. Except minimal results with minimal specs. And I'd try to bump up the RAM if at all possible...that would really help out.
