Hey all, I know, haven't been here in a while. Life's quite busy though
Anyways, I was wondering if you guys could help me get Windows 7 installed on an old PC.
The system is a Dell Dimension 2350, at least 5 years old (probably more). Its equipped with a Pentium 4, 768MB RAM, 60GB HDD, and some integrated Intel graphics.
I'm having some issues getting the install started. The computer only has a CD drive. I tried to swap it with a DVD drive that had the same connectors and everything, but it wouldn't detect that at all. Next, I tried loading Windows 7 onto my flash drive (which I was successful at, for once, lol). I can't figure out how to get this computer to boot into it. If its even possible.
XP is just not as fun to use as 7, and I can't install Linux because I require some Windows only software.
Are there any other ways to install? Its really disappointing because from the specs it might be able to run......
Thanks again for any help
