You Bet It Can!

On Microsoft’s website the specified minimum amount of RAM needed to install windows 7 is 1gb. Today I am going to attempt to install Windows 7 on a system with only 512mb of ram, half the specified the amount

.minimum requirements

The computer which I will use today to conduct our little experiment is a Dell Dimension 4300. Specs include a Pentium 4 processor running at 1.4GHZ, 512mb of PC133 RAM, and a Nvidia MX400 video card.  Unfortunately the night before this video the system’s power supply failed and I had to quickly find a substitute.  I just grabbed a micro ATX PSU I had laying around and had the system back online a few minutes later.
