  • Microsoft says that the minimum system requirement of Ram for using the 32-Bit version of Windows 8 is 1 GB, but for the 64-Bit version is 2 GB.

    If the Windows 7 runs good on your laptop, I think it’s okay to install the 32-bit version of Windows 8.

  • This is a 90-day “eval” install and CAN NOT BE UPGRADED. To convert to a fully licensed version of Windows 8, a complete reinstall is required. After the initial 90-days, it will cease to function.
