If it doesn't work you've only wasted around 30 mins as you'll soon find out whether it will install or not.

You could possibly find Video driver problems but a 6 year old computer is 100% capable of running XP so you should be fine.

I wouldn't however want to try running the latest copy of Photoshop CS4 with HUGE files or running any serious video multi-media on this type of gear however.


Thanks. I did the install (the pc has two hard drives so i dual booted) and all went well except for what you said about the video driver problems. I have an nvidia geforce3 Ti 200 graphics card but i need a driver that is compatible with windows 7.

Also whe i said before that the pc had 2gb of ram i found out that it has only 512mb of it.
