[this topic contains false information]

Please notice how Windows 7 is efficient.
It can run in a 7 Mhz CPU....It's absolutely stunning and unbeliable !

In the 80s, 8086 CPUs were working at those speeds....

EPIC FAIL
It clearly says AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ which is a quite fast CPU. (2GHz at least)

This is obviously fake or some error when the window was resized

How could you not notice that? Also anyone with even tiniest bit of computer knowledge would know that's impossible, 7MHz LOL

I didn't know 7 MHz CPU existed for AMD Athlon

Come on guys....
I know that AMD CPUs are fast and have a great price/performance ratio....

But while you spent more than 1000 dollars in a 500MHz computer in the late 90s I had already a 2100 MHz cellphone to call at ultra fast speeds my girl friends.

LOL WTF !!!

I think you missed the point, your topic is pure absurd.

Think the speed has been set in the virtual machine, so it will show the type of processor that's in the actual pc

That's what I was thinking. Because isn't the host processor and hardware virtualized for virtual machines, but you can set the speed and such?

I would like to say that the screen shot MAY NOT BE FAKE I am currently booting XP, Vista and 7 all in virtual PC's with 10khz processors

It might take some time, but its possible

BS...

Windows 7 cant run on 8086 because it dont handle protected memory..... In fact a 8086 cant run windows 3.11 because it need protected memory acces.

Its not saying Windows 7 is running on a 8086, its just showing that 7Mhz processors were around in the 1980's

Has anyone thought of the CPU being downclocked to 7 MHz ???!!!

Not possible to run Windows Vista and a virtual pc on 7MHz, so it must be the virtual pc that's set to 7MHz

I no, not again!

I've seen this before on the release of Windows Vista. A 7 MHz doesn't even show a .jpg image let alone a complete GUI with alpha layered .PNG images...

Nope...

While I don't know if there is a secret Clock setting inside VPC, I can tell you that this is just a bug in Microsofts virtualization tool. Why? Because I have a similar result here with Windows Server 2008: It's an Intel Celeron D with 2,8 GHz, but the virtualized OS wants to tell me the CPU is running at 19 MHz.

I doubt you could 'virtually' downclock a CPU in a VIRTUAL machine.

And if you did it with the physical CPU, I don't even think VMWare would even run. <_<

umm...do u even know the difference between radio frequency and clock rate? ROLFMAO! :P

Ok.... I made this topic and of course i was joking.
This screenshot comes from a Virtual PC 2007 emulation.
The thing is that other Virtual Machines do show the correct CPU Clock speed.

If you are a real programmer: just like someone said in this post....Windows 7 could run in a 7MHz CPU as long as you have the proper Registries and Instruction sets.

The lower clock speed only affects the calculation speed.
With a standard 3Ghz AMD Phenom or Core I7 CPU but ipotetically downclocked to 7 Mhz, Windows 7 would take about 6 Hours to boot. Probably from 5 to 7 hours in worst case conditions.

Anyways this 7MHz thing does show who doesn't understand a forum joke and that Microsoft Virtual PC can be improved in CPU virtualization.

Besides, if a CPU would run at 7 MHz while in idle mode, it would be very power efficient.....and it is technically possible !!! It has been done and it will be done again.

Cheers.

I'm pretty sure you weren't joking, you say that only now.
Video or it never happened, I can also mspaint my screenshot and tell everyone i'm running Seven on 7 MHz.
This screenshot is obviously 32bit, which is FAR from what a 7 MHz CPU could ever handle.

This screen seems more real, but still doubtful.
Not to mention that your screenshot is not only having 32bit color rendering, but also few apps running. So this is more than impossible.
One can edit the system info easily too.
