I was just checking out your site. I was pointing out an format/alignment error that you may wish to address. You wouldn't want a BSOD while demonstrating your new OS.

Having read the forum rules about links in sigs, I don't think you are violating the policy, but you can place the link in your profile. And a link to your profile in your sig.

Sadly as per rules concerning badges...You have to acquire 100 rep and get the "Skilled" badge to put a link in a sig

Windows 7 can run on a pentium 3 660 MHZ 512 ram

I asked you guys earlier about running windows 7 on apentium 3 660 mhz 13 gig drive 64 meg video card 512 ram. Well I answered my own question. but I am replying this becaus you wanted to know if it could be done. Well yes it can. I nstalled it on this pc for a bit this is the IBM Personal PC 330GL. but the thing is the minimum requirements for windows 7 is 1 gig ram. well I ran it on this one with 512 ram. as for video card. It didn''t recognize the card yet. but my ethernet was not working correctly so I uninstalled it. It took 7 gigs on the drive. but as for speedwise. I didn't notice much difference. it was still faster then windows XP. So that quetion I answered about installing windows 7 on a pentium 3 660 MHZ 512 ram. It can be done. I did it. I am on the verge to moving so I don't know if I will have time but I will install wiondowsws 7 on this probably a bit later. this week. Because it does work.

I did have time

I just reinstalled windows 7 on my pentium 3 660 mhz 512 ram and I guess I had time to do it. so my comp is runnig pretty good. actually better then it did on xp. I had to do some manual program downloads and installs because some of the stuff in this comp was to old and 7 didn't recognize it. But now it does. I found the drivers I needed.

but if you know a link I can go to to get eh computer to recognize the video card please let me know. I hav ea nvidia gforce 440 MX 8x agp 64 meg with tv out, but windows 7 doesn't recognize it. I downloaded a few drivedrs but none of themn work. it says that it doesen't recognize the OS.

If you know where I can go to get a driver for an old video card lioek that that windows 7 will recognioze please let me know.

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!
