Windows 7: Minimum Install size Win7 x64bit (ultimate)

22 Oct 2010   #11

64-bit Windows 10 Pro


You would be cutting it real close with only a 30GB HDD for 64-bit Windows 7. You could give it a try, but it may or may not work with so little free space left to be allocated for the page file, hibernation, system protection, etc....

Yes, unfortunately it would require a clean install to go from 32-bit to 64-bit, or 64-bit back to 32-bit.
