    Add it to the W7 WEI thread.. I've got a P1 150 with 16mb ram in a cupboard somewhere - although its only got a 2.1Gb HD, so may have a few issues there..

    Have installed it on my girlfiends Laptop.

    Dell Inspiron 1300, (3 Years old)

    1.7Ghz Pentium M Scores 4.1
    2Gb DDR 400 Scores 3.7
    160Gb HDD Scores 4.7

    Graphics gets a 1.0 as i cannot install the driver. Everytime i try it looks like someone stamped on the screen.

    Works perfect though.

    There was 40mins between your posts saying that you'd just started running WEI and that it hadnt completed yet.. But it doesnt show properly, as this forum gives a rough estimate of how long ago the post was made, rather than the actual time..

    I changed the 2 50mm fans (my own mod back when this was a main system) for a 92mm Silverstone fan, so much quieter!

    Well that was a complete and utter waste of time, money (bought a hdd specifically for W7) and effort.

    Started installing got a BSOD, tried again but it just sat there on the splash screen, reformatted hdd still does the same, threw w7 dvd in the bin.
