    Re: How much space do I need to install windows 7 in my laptop?

    See while installing windows 7 you have two options-a)Upgrade installation-here you have the some basic system files and some of your required programs and software that you had originally in the previous version of windows. Along with that you will have your windows 7 installed in your machine with newer system files. b)Custom installation-Here all your previous configurations will be deleted permanently. Your newer OS will be the only settings saved in you machine.
    Now while you install Windows 7 in your machine you can go for either 32-bit version or 64-bit version of the OS. To me if you ask I will advice you to for the latter one. This is because it has higher and efficient capacity in memory access.
    So for Windows 7 installation you need 64 bit processor or you can go for even higher and speedy processors.You need 1-2 GB RAM. You need around 20GB or more free space in your hard disk. Also you need Direct X 9 Graphics Device for proper interface presentation.

    See while that installing the windows 7 you have two options, a ) improves the installation, here has the certain |system| file basic and your required programs and software that you have originally in the previous version of windows. Jointly with which will have your windows 7 installed in your machine with new |system| file. the b) the installation to the measure-here all your previous configurations will be erased permanently. Your new OS will be the unique placings tastes food beforehand in you machine.
    Now while that you install Windows 7 in your machine that you can be about to bring version of 32- bit or version of 64 |pedacitos| of the OS. to me if you ask that I can the advice that you for this the last one a. This is because it has the more high and efficient capacitance in memory the access.


    So for Windows 7 installation that needs 64 bit procesador or you can be about to bring more high and speedy uniform processors.You needs 1-2 GB RAM. needs you about 20GB or the more free space in your hard disk. Also it needs the 9 device of graph of direct x for the appropriate link presentation.It in dependence of your system of computer. Verify your system of by right computer clicks on " my computer " goes to your |propertise|. Then see your system of computer.
    If your system of computer is 32 |pedacito| then you need " 16 GB " engraves in dialing it lasts space.
    If your system of computer is 64 |pedacito| then you need " 20 GB " engraves in dialing it lasts space.
    other side that needs the 1 sheep of GB minimum also.

    Re: How much space do I need to install windows 7 in my laptop?

    In Genrally windows 7 takes huge amount space when compare with other operating system.

    when we want to install windows7 in laptop then 20gb disk space require which is minimum.
    because operating system takes the 6.5-9 gb of space .
    and operating system require some amount for page file. and also require hardwares.

    so try to maintain the 16gb minimum if you have possible 20gb or above.

    Hi friend ,

    To install windows 7 you need the following system requirements

    I) Processor must be 1GHz or faster

    II) 1 GB of RAM for 32 bit windows and 2 GB for 64 bit windows

    III) 16 GB hard disk space for 32 bit and for 64 bit 20 GB

    IV) Your system must support direct X9 or higher



    After installation of windows you need drivers for your hardware

    """""DEAR"""""

    You can do a 60GB/60GB split. You will just want to make sure you disable a lot of things that would eat up hard drive space.
    You probably cannot avoid the swap, but disable hibernation, system restore, reserved trashcan space, and clean up your temp files.
    All in all this should free up quite a bit of space that would otherwise take up a good percentage of your hard drive. On a fresh Windows 7 install, with my programs and drivers and with some space conservation measures, I'm around 20GB installed with 100GB free. (Using 120GB SSD)

    As per Microsoft the system requirements for installing Windows 7 are-


    • 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

      It will require at least 20 GB of your Hard Disk.So make sure you partition after taking a look at the free space you have.

    Re: How much space do I need to install windows 7 in my laptop?

    For only installing windows 7 operating system, 7628MB is enough!

    But windows will recommend 10GB space in local disk for installation purpose!

    But installing software's in same local disk 10 GB wasn't enough for you.

    You need minimum 20 GB free space to install operating system and all other software's like, nero etc...

    There here are the requirements for installing windows 7 operating system,

    1:GIGAHERTZ processor or more

    2:1 GB Ram for 32-bit where as, 2 GB for 64- bit

    3:Minimum 16 Gb hard disk space

    4irectX 9 version

    Hello friend,


    To install the Windows 7 in your computer you need the following 'free space' required.

    1.To install Windows 7 (64-bit) you need '20 GB' of free space.

    2.To install the Windows 7 (32-bit) you need '16 GB' free space to install.

    It is better to install the Windows (32-bit) as some games and programs will not run in (64-bit).

    The other requirements to install the Windows 7 are:-

    1.1 GHz or more faster processor you will be needed.

    2.You need for 32-bit 1 GB ram and for 64-bit you need 2 GB ram.

    3.You will need the DirectX 9 graphic device along with WDDM 1.0 or higher drivers.

    These are the minimum requirements needed to install the Windows 7 in your laptop.

    Have a nice day........
