Vista on Dual Core processor...!

Is any1 using Vista on dual core processor(2Ghz) with 2 or 3 GB of RAM...??Does it rum smoothly on it..I have read somewhere that it does create problems on dual core processor..

What u people say..I guess it should run best on dual core 2Ghz processor with 3GB RAM>>!!!!

Shouldn't have any problem.

Windows Vista runs smooth on dual cores and single core, so does XP, and should also 2000 and NT.

No problem that I have found.

on Single core also…???

I dont think that it should fine on single core!!!

Vista runs fine on dual core and single core processors. I have single core 3Ghz HT processor with 2gb of Ram and vista is working fine on it.

^all softwares work fine with AERO theme...??

no halting and no freezing..>!!!??

^^ Yes, everything working fine. I have PCX graphics card installed and every game is also working smooth.

Yes, on single core processors too. All you need is at least 2 GB DDR2 RAM and graphic card with 256 MB GDDR2 card DirectX 9 or DirectX 10 (better) card. Everything works fine, smooth and great :)

EDIT: Also good free space. At least 20 GB free space after installing Windows Vista. If you are going to install lots of softwares then have at least 80+ GB free space. SATA2 harddisks are good to go with above mentioned hardwares.

Intel Media Graphic Accelerator would work fine!!!!!????

Yes it will Dogarsahab. Infact i believe vista is better optimized for dual cores then XP. Theres no need to worry.. You should do fine with vista installed.

okay..Let me take a plunge then!!!!I am going to do it on dual core 2Ghz amd 2Gb of RAM!!!

to be very honest after giving sevral times, Vista sucks.

i just upgraded my ram from 1gb to 2.5GB… i have 1.6 dualcore laptop… but its still perform very slow and damn my 20GB c drive was almost full , so just switch back to XP , hoping better results from windows 7,

I have read Windows 7 reviews, they say its better than any Windows ever built, having the stability of Xp and eye candy of Vista. i download it from MS's website. Searching for a DVD writer to burn and have a look.

u Daemon Tools and then create a virtual boot drive and try it!!!

Indeed Windows 7 is great!!!

What will happen after a restart? Windows 7 will require a real drive not a virtual one. Or Windows 7 install in one go?

I havent tried myself but my friends have tried it and they have used Daemon Tools to install it!!!..

Just do little googling about how to use Daemon Tools....

Well im not taking any reisk until i burn it on a DVD. It may b done if I boot my PC from Windows 98 CD, run Daemon tools ( if it is possible ) and install Windows from there. I don’t see any other way to install windows using a virtual DVD drive

I installed Windows 7 on my machine as a VM using Virtual PC. It took around 10GB of the space inside VM. But the VM’s size is around 5GB, still figuring out where Windows 7 got the extra 5GB from :confused:

Will test the machine tonite.
