I don't think it was very odd - I ran the Windows 7 Installation Adviser or Upgrade Adviser, whatever it's called, and it put up a red flag saying that Windows 7 Aero was incompatible with the video chip. That's all it said. Knowing that Windows 7 Home Basic does not include Aero, I wondered if Home Basic would install. Or, if all
Windows 7 versions would simply fail to install (which is what the wording of the Adviser error msg implied). I don't want to buy a version of Windows 7 to find out the answer to this on my own and not be able to return it.
When registering on this forum, it requires
us to enter system specs along with our name. That might not be such a good idea, because most people will assume all questions relate to that system. I'm sure most people like me nowadays deal with several computers.
Anyway, I didn't see the point in listing all the system specs for the other computer, since I already ran the upgrade adviser to check the hardware, and already looked at the system requirements for Windows 7. My confusion was about the red flag over the video chip. It is the Intel 82845G/GL, but again I didn't see much point in mentioning it, since the adviser already said it wasn't compatible with Aero.
