    Re: Installing Windows 8 Consumer Preview Version in 1GB RAM system

    hii

    First of all i would like to strongly recommend you not to install windows 8 into your computer when you have 1 GB RAM only in it....
    I am saying this as windows 7 and windows 8 are totally different versions of windows with respect to RAM usage .. Windows 7 can be used in 1GB RAM though i think its really low for the computer with the windows 7 too but talking about windows 8 it needs high RAM like atleast i recommend you to have 4 GB RAM for this otherwise you computer will hang most of the time and hence you will not be able to experience windows 8 to the full...

    Here are some PC requirements for windows 8 if you want to install it into your computer :

    Windows 8 system requirements 64-bit (x64)
    CPU with 1GHz processor
    20GB hard disk space
    2GB RAM
    DirectX-9 graphics card

    Windows 8 system requirements 32-bit (x86/x32)
    CPU with 1GHz processor
    16GB hard disk space
    1GB RAM
    DirectX-9 graphics card

    thanks
