Hi Nathan,

I just sent the patched winsetup.dll to your mail address!

Good luck, and if you like: please let me know if it worked out for you!


Greetz,

hi,
I'm hoping someone will help i newbie.
I've downloaded the win 7 iso and mounted the DVD using Magiciso, copied the files onto the c:\, then over written the winsetup.dll with the patch version, and created and new ISO using Folder2ISO, but the DVD will not boot.
I've tried it in serval machines, and it doesn't boot in either.

I really don't know what I've doing wrong here, so any help would be great.

Thanks


use InfraRecorder
doesnt show the DVD option...but it does burn dvds :) and its free

There are at least 2 ways to install Windows 7 in a computer with less than 512 mb of ram.
One way is installing Windows 7 with 512 mb of ram and then once Windows is installed you can remove the memory leaving into the system only 128 or 256 mb of ram installed.
The computer should run just fine.
I sold 3 computers, 2 with 256mb and 1 with 128 mb ram with windows 7 up and running just fine...probably even faster that if they would have windows xp.

Another way is modifying windows 7 xml setup data to allow it being installed with less than 512 mb of ram.


You sold 3 computers with Windows 7? Did you disclose to them that the Beta would expire in August? I sure hope you did. If you didn't, then you're a f**king cunt.

If you didn't tell these people about the expiration, then you're no better than someone who sells computers with cracked versions of Windows. Taking advantage of people is a douche bag thing to do. Even if they don't inquire about whether it will expire or not, it's still your responsiblity to tell them.

If you did tell them, then kudos to you.

Good point...
Actually i think that since RAM memory is so cheap these days people should have absolutely non less than 4Gb installed(including laptops), at least to take advantage of all the 32 bits potential.
But in many poor countries around the world you are lucky if you can afford a computer with p3 1GHz and 128Mb ram.
So this tip for some people is actually very useful.

Unless your computer doesn't support more than 2gb of RAM. I'm only allowed 1gb per slot and I only have 2 slots :D

That makes 2 of us

I defiantly wouldn't recommend Windows 7 with less than 512mb RAM... I tried it on my old computer with 256mb... Awful, took like 10 minutes to start and then you have to log on!!! oh and shame on you selling computers with windows 7 that won't hardly even run it!!!

Is there a way to boot the installer (from cd) with only 160mb ram? with 256 it would boot fine, but machine i'm working with has only 160mb (and is not able to have 256). Installation via XP works, but I would like to use repair tools of installation for being able to install Win7 to under 4 GB.

And btw, I don't want to hear that it's not going to run Crysis on 1920x1080 on ultra graphic settings. I don't want it on daily use anyway.

MS released basic editions for budget machines, I think they should lower the minimum requirment on the basic OS so users with less than 512mb can install ( I think 1gb should be minimum though)

Bumping with photo of Win7 running on 266MHz Mobile Pentium II and 64 mb ram. No screenshot, but photo, because - seriously, 25mins to boot the OS! You know how much it would take to load up paint and take screenshot :lol:
