Windows 7 32-bit; no 64 coz its a P4 478

LOL... I KNEW 7 could run on Pentium 2's HAHAHAHA.... But I think coz its a dual processor machine+512 MB RAM, THATS Y he could run it... But hey i WASN'T Lying abt 7 can 'boot with only 100 MB RAM.. I tried it. Ask someone who is running 7 in virtualized environment to set their Win 7 VM with 100 MB RAM... It ill boot but too sluggish for ANYTHING ELSE! BTW, im runing on P4 3.0 Ghz + 1 GB RAM [host] which is painfully slow to Virtualize anything above XP, dont think i tryed 7 in virtualBOX with quad core... ). And my Seagate 500 GB [7200.11] decided to die (google it, very common prob with this model), so i can't show you a screenshot... Believe me... I wouldn't lie for a computer topic....

7 running on P2 is like far too much ....IMO I thought it was impossible...
Wouldn't be surprised if it ran on P1....

The thing is the mobo... I don't think the BIOS is programmed to boot on USB. And, it's USB 1.1 (= slow as hell install).
