Windows se7en on a old (slow) notebook

Today I installed Windows seven on a old notebook with the following hardware
Processor: AMD Sempron 3000+ (1,81 GHz)
Ram: 512 MB (only 382 can be used)
Architecture: x86 (32 Bit)
Harddisk: 17,8 GB (11GB free after installation) => Yes it need only 6-7 GB
Grahics Card: ATI Radeon Xpress Series

Well the installation took about 30 Minutes and after that it detected automatically the drivers and downloaded them (if necessary) from the internet.
The system is very fast and stable even if it runs on this (old) machine. If you try to install and run Vista on such a notebook you will have problems 🙂

Aero does not work but this is not such a problem.

I am surprised that it works so good. You have done a good job Microsoft! 🙂

Conclusion: It runs also on older pcs and not so powerful netbooks 🙂
