Hi.. I'm new and.....

Hi everybody I'm new here so sorry if i put this i the wrong place! I've been looking around a while i was interested on installing windows 7 on my laptop! i only have 224.4mb of ram. so i was reading and i downloaded "Hex Editor Neo" and configured the file to bypass the low ram message and deleted the ei.cfg. when i'm installing windows 7 home premium it installs ok than when it reboots to finish the installation it just freezes. the windows 7 entrance stays on the screen but the hhd light goes off. am i doing something wrong?? here are the details on my computer.

Laptop Model:Ebuddy 8.3
HDD Capacity: 30gb
Ram: 222.4MB
Cpu: Pentium 4

If i didn't tell you something important ask me! or if I'm doing something wrong tell me what it is plis!! thanks for looking at my first post!!!

You need more RAM I believe.

The minimum requirement is 1GB and you only have 25% of the bare Min. Requirement.


But your specs say 2GB. Do you have 2GB or 256MB?

You'll need at least a gig.

I have run with 528 mb RAM on an HP laptop but had to do without an AV and gadgets. Upgrading to 1 gb made all the difference.

There is no way it will run with 256mb. Upgrade and that Pentium 4 should do fine.

I did a test desktop computer during beta testing with 384 mb (pent-II).

But with a laptop probably some memory is allocated to video.

It sounds like you have an integrated graphics system. That means a portion of your total memory (in your case you can select 8MB, 16MB, etc) is set aside to handle video requirements. If your machine had a total of 256MB RAM and you set aside 32MB, all of your other applications would have about 224MB RAM to operate on.

Carlos, I hope I'm not offending you with this but as my dear fellow geeks have already told you, that's not going to work. You need more RAM, and even then it's not sure that computer is suitable for Windows 7.

Sometimes you just have to accept reality.

You also need to do a think about that tiny hdd. Windows will consume 10-15 gb plus programs like MS Office and Acrobat take up more than a gb each. System restore and hibernation file will also take up a decent bit of space. That'll leave you with very little maneouvre room, you may quickly start getting low disk space warnings and find yourself constantly moving out data.

Also run the win 7 upgrade advisor to give you a clearer picture of what your machine lacks in hardware.

Check the laptop manufacturer for what is the maximum memory the motherboard can hold. & the max size of the ram chips.
