Re: is windows 7 compatible to install??
Lol- he does have an AGP slot. His whole system is a 2002 system at best. He has a Socket A.
Sadly, I doubt win7 will even install on it period. It's just too slow and inefficient.
If you have another windows on it already, try running the win 7 upgrade advisor:
Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Download - Microsoft Windows
Windows 7 system requirements - Microsoft Windows
If you want to run Windows 7 on your PC, here's what it takes:
1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
with a single core 1.33GHz max 32-bit processor, single channel ddr1 mem at 2gb max and AGPx4 video may not quite pass muster. You may still be able to install anyhow, but I'm sure it would be painfully slow.
ps, I still have a socket 754 64-bit 2.0GHz single core processor, single channel 2gb ddr-400 memory and it runs fine at initial install of win7. But it bogs down really fast and most all programs lag. I turned it into a NAS machine, and replaced it as it just used too much power to run 24/7. It's now in my closet again.
