XP Home on Dell Optiplex

  Terry Brown 21:41 03 Mar 05

I have a DELL Optiplex GXi 450l+, running with 64 Mb memory and 8GB HDD. Would it take XP Pro ?--Any advice gratefully received before I attempt it.Terry

PC with 300 megahertz (MHz) or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233-MHz minimum required;* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended

• 128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)

• 1.5 gigabyte (GB) of available hard disk space.*

• Super VGA (800 × 600) or higher resolution video adapter and monitor

• CD-ROM or DVD drive

• Keyboard and Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device

My second PC was a Dell Optiflex G1 and I had Xp pro successfully loaded. I did have a Pentium 1 400Mhz CPU and 4 Gb Hdd and 256RAM.I`ve come further since then(less than 12 months ago) and enjoy XP. Jonny Tub`s got the numbers right

i have had xp running on those bare minimum requirements before, it was the most boring painstaking experience of my life, not recommended at all

Thanks for the help. I think I'll stick with win98 until I upgrade to a new machine
