I believe it's no.

Older Intel® Graphics Controllers and Microsoft Windows 7*

(Windows 7 drivers for older Intel graphics devices.)

I believe that the "Vista" drivers at are really XP ones. No Aero Glass support.

You can run Win7 without Aero Glass, on a suitable PC. Is an R2H really suitable? (Looks a bit weak on the CPU and amount of RAM.)

First, if your card does not meet the requirements, you may see some pretty nasty performance.

If you are intent, try this: Hack to Force Enable Aero in Windows 7 My Digital Life

Hope this helps,

Windows 7

Answer to first post:
Yes it is caperable of windows 7, in fact i have windows 7 running on it now and it runs windows 7 better than it runs vista that came on it.

Answer to second post:
No good, i have tried that yesterday and it does not make any difference.
I would like to try it to see if it can be done and if it all goes wrong then i have a lot of time so i will reinstall.
Any other ways?

Other info:
This is the graphic card info at the end of this post.
