    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.

    :D

    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 :p).

    I looked at it earlier today actually...it just reminds me of windows vista but without the annoying security pop-up dialogs.

    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.

    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).

    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.
