Hi Peter,

That's pretty amazing, but how slow does it run?

I'd love to give some details with proof, but can't do that, so you'll have top take my word for it.

WEI is not available, and cannot be executed because there is a problem with "Write back caching" on the hard disk.

But performance wise, Windows 7 on an Athlon 1500 with 512MB ram is pretty snappy, and bloody amazing too, considering that Vista won't even install on the same hardware!

Peter, your word is good to me. Who would have thought it would run that well with those specs. This will be great news for those with older systems.

Thanks!

From a pure tech point of view, it would seem as though Microsoft has kept their promise. They said that 7 will have lesser overall requirements than Vista, and this is why I tested on the old Athlon 1500/512MB/20GB rig.

Now what I'd like to see are some similar tests from others, perhaps on a similar speed intel?

"screenable is not usable"

I am still looking for a way to try an install of seven on a really old laptop I have (P3-650 - 192Mo ), but without DVD player and no USB boot ...
Curious to see how it can work on it(XP itself is really slow because of the ram amount and the odl HDD)


By the way the first time I've tried Vista that was on a AthlonXP 1800+ @ 2.4Ghz with 512Mo. Working fine.. not great but fine.
I've found that under 1.9Ghz for the CPU it became unsuable.
