Win7 wil probably run on it, but slowly. Aero will depend on the video graphics adapter.

I run Win7 Home Premium on my Mom's computer P4@3.4HT, 2GB DDR1 and a 320WD SATA2 with a 128MB AGP Nvidia Quaddro, and everything works nicely, not the fastest, but way faster than the old XP SP3.

Yes 7 will work on it, even Aero. Intel has Windows 7 drivers for it,

and for that old SB Live 5.1 this would be the best bet for it,

SB Live! series Support Pack 2.0 (04/30/2010) - Creative Labs

as there are no official Windows 7 drivers for it.

About the only thing you might want to do to it for Windows 7 is drop another gig of ram in it.

Windows 7 on a Pentium M?
I have an older laptop with Pentium M 1.6 GHz, 1GB RAM, an Intel graphics card on the mobo. I am having trouble sharing files with a box with 64 bit Windows 7. Someone said it's better to have the same OS. Is it possible to run 32 bit Win 7 on the oldie (of course, with Aero off)? Thanks!
