i recently tried windows 7 on my PC.i had 512mb ram and installed it today.my motherboard doesn't support its inbuilt drives.i installed some vista drivers and they were working fine.i think my motherboard is too old for win7.i didnt get any transparency in it.it was just looking like the basic version of vista. how many of you have experienced the same problem?If you know how to rectify this problem,please tell me . thanx in advance.

Well 512 is not good enough, but I can tell you if you are able to run vista then windows 7 will run better, or at least that is my experience, right now I am running it and it is much smoother than vista, there are some issues with it like not being able to run several games, well at least the ones I have tried like age of empires, need for speed but well it is still beta and for being beta looks pretty well.

Hey i thought that the calculator was like a test to make sure your computer can handle windows 7, well thanks for the link anyway, oh and just one more thing, I don't think that being able to run the calculator means that you can run the OS, I think the calculator uses minimal resources (just a tought)

I tried it... and It worked great for me.... A much better eXperience than vista.. they automatically downloaded the required drivers for everything necessary right away (and updates to the readily available ones) This is not errorsome like Vista.. It is the most stable in terms of gaming.. It is not resource thirsty as Vista is... All in all.. the best ever from Microsoft!! but ofcourse.. you can't install everything you see. as there are compatibility issues (being a new OS) Try Windows 7.. once you get it set up.. You'll enjoy it.. I guarantee!

You have already answered your question. 512 MB of RAM is NOT enough for Windows Vista or Windows 7. Its not related to your motherboard. For Windows Vista & 7 to run properly, you need at least 1 GB RAM (2GB recommended), minimum 256 MB Advanced Graphics card with more pixel shaders ( to have all that classy effect coming up). With 512 MB of RAM, your poor PC is going to crash soon, just like it happened to me. With much enthusiasm, i went ahead and installed Vista first & then tried 7, only to find out that PC crashed like hell endangering my present hardware (RAM, harddisk etc). Hence, i reverted back to good old XP Pro Service Pack 2. Personally i think its better than Vista & 7. Hope I have answered your question!!
