Running Windows 7 on a netbook

Microsoft has said that any version of Windows 7 will run on a netbook. We try it with Windows 7 Ultimate.

This is seemingly significant notification from microsoft. As even currently many notebooks with limited hardware are unable to run Windows Vista. Hence for such notebooks microsoft recommends running win XP.

The surprising thing is although Microsoft is claiming that it will run on limited version notebooks but intel has not confirmed so. In fact they are saying they doubt the same.

Microsoft states that Windows 7 requires a 1-GHz processor, 1GB of main memory and support for DirectX 9 graphics with 128MB of memory (for the Aero interface). The company recommends that you have at least 16GB of available disk space for the installation; Windows 7 actually takes up about 5GB.
