    Default Windows 7 on a K6-2 @ 167

    Saw hackerman1's thread and decided to do an experiment of my own..
    this are the current results, started with a AMD k6-2 500 Mhz on an Alladin
    chipset with 512Mb RAM.


    after some tweaking with the board I've got this:


    It takes about 20 minutes to boot.. .
    As you might expect it takes a while to load anything.
    Working to get a real P1-166 working with it.

    All the parts are brand new, out of the box. Old, as in bought in the 90's, but never opened until last week.

    I can't even get Windows XP to install on the damn thing, so how do I get Windows 7 to run? Help!
    I really don't see how you couldn't install Xp on that.... My XP Box is a Pentium II 233 with 128MB/ram.
    You got your date right about the 90's??? P4 didn't ship till late 2000 or 2001.

    Anyway you guys got me interested. I'll pull out the dusty ol' AMD K6 500mhz laptop with 256mb-ram and see if it installs

    This has me thinking. I might try it on our old Dell Dimension Desktop.

    How did you manage to override the memory requirements of the installer?
    I tried to install Win7 b7100 on a Compaq P3 @ 1GHz with 384MB of RAM (256 + 128) and it just says that it won't install with less than 512M.
    I would also like to see the "real" minimum requirements of this OS.
    I have a large variety of ancient steam-powered CPUs from the mid-90's, ranging from Pentium 133MHz to AMD K6-2+ @550MHz, but I only have the two above-mentioned sticks of RAM.

    I installed it using a 512 MB of ram, luckily i had the sticks lying around.
    hackerman1 found a bypass of some sort...

    I've searched around and found out that you can pass parameters to the setup
    (if you are doing the setup from within xp/vista)

    Like /nm and /im
    so try "setup /nm /im" in the command prompt with the dvd or iso loaded in the drive.
