It did not successfully run on my machine of 1.0 GHz with 512 ram
1: That CPU is too slow! You need a faster one
2: The RAM is just cutting it, but it is enough to handle Windows 7.
That's barely enough to run Vista, let alone 7. My dual-core system with 2GB of RAM runs it like greased lightning. :biggrin:
I'm currently grabbing Build 7000 through a BT leak. I'm curious on how it will run on my Pentium 4 powered machine.
It currently runs on Vista quite well [after some major upgrades] so I think it would accept Windows 7.
Not really, build 7000 is the beta you can still get on MS's website(only 2 weeks remaining though).
It depends on how much RAM you have, but Windows 7 runs OK (not as good as XP did) on my Pentium 4 PC, but it does have 768MB RAM and integrated graphics (which got 1.0 ).
I looked at it earlier today actually...it just reminds me of windows vista but without the annoying security pop-up dialogs.
That's because Microsoft toned UAC down - leaving a potential security risk at default settings. http://pcworld.co.nz/pcworld/pcw.nsf/feature/AC9A942D4B027C94CC25755000739BC4
i tested and still am testing windows seven and i would say there is alot of work to be done were they have the souce of the files still unencrypted so you could write ur own OS if ya wanted i am a proud xp user but i like the beta for windows 7 btw i have tryed over 21789 applications on it and they all work i hope that helps all you future users of windows 7
There are many security based issues that have to be worked out for Windows 7, but since it is still in Beta they have plenty of time before the new shipment of a product begins.
Download in Progress.
Downloading in progress, should be interesting, can't be worse than Vista!
I have it, and play on it every now and then, but in the last week, despite not having used it, or that hard drive at all, it's messed up the install? It looks great and I love it, a definite improvement on Vista when the full version comes out!
It is an improvement on Vista, I like it. Been using the x64 bit version and it's installed all of my software and games without a problem and took to my new hardware very well (Alienware 7500).
lol vista isn't that bad but 7 is a definate improvement faster in most respects than xp
If I get around to testing it will be in a virtual machine image.....
I have to go buy a new network card, my Netgear wireless WPN311 is not compatible. I have to buy a WG311 apparently...
At first I d/led it then ran it in virtual machine with 512mb ram but it was a bit laggy so I decided i'd just make a new partition and use it, but something went wrong with the partitioning and it messed up my computer So now the only OS I have installed is Windows 7 because whenever I try to install Windows XP I get an error message That's happened on 3 different XP install disks now which sucks.
So I tried 3 Netgear pieces of hardware, WPN311, WG311 and the Wsomething N USB Adapter. None worked! I went and purchased a $30 PCI "Dynex" (Best Buy in house brand) and it worked!!!!!!!! I can't believe that a $80 wireless card would not work over a $30 el-cheapo card, blows my mind.
