Windows 7: The Bare Minimum

10 Jan 2011   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate X64 bit

I actually have a follow up to my original reason to my thread but it might be relevant since it has to do with reinstalling windows. Would it be feasible to flash the bios prior to re-installing win 7 X64 on the new ssd? I might want to basically get the bios up to date before putting the os on the new drive then I can do sata controller updates and all that. I figured I may as well do it now since I will be reinstalling the os on the new drive.

minimum requirements
When a software program states it requires a minimum of 1GB to operate well, does that include the RAM needed to run the operating system? For example, if I'm running a machine with 2GB of RAM, and the program requires at least 1GB, do I therefore need at least 3GB of RAM?
