What's the absolute minimum amount of RAM people have managed to install with?

I'm guessing 128mb won't cut it?

Don't you need to perform a reg hack to get it to install on that little bit of RAM?

Don't know if this one qualifies for this thread, but I still fire up my 1985 Commodore 64 Home PC complete with tape drives, floppy disc, printer and around 200 games, all in perfect working order but alas, Win 7 just wont fit on it. Have a laugh people

Geforce 6800GT but it died a death (now a GTS250 1GB)

I have Windows 7 x86 Pro installed on it and it runs ok. XP is faster as somethings but windows 7 operates smoother.

Thanks Doc. I think when I'm the mood for some frustration, I might give it a go on a dinosaur that I think may still work.
