Anyone run XPpro with 64megs of ram?
Any observation and problems
Stick a 20 inch dildo up your ass and you'll have a similar experience.
Actually, I really wouldn't know, I never ran WinXP with 64MB of RAM.
I just kid, it won't work well, at all. Just booted in, with the "classic" theme takes at least 100MB of memory. It would be murder and I think that WinXP will actually refuse to install if there is under 128MB of RAM installed.
yea, get a new PC
I've seen it done, it's not pretty but it worked. The guy had to turn off all the eye candy and such. You'd be better off with windows 98 or buy a new system.
to find out, try adding /MAXMEM=64 in the boot.ini on your current machine.
It won't be pretty unless you cut back on the running services pretty hard.
well first of not my machine ...a friends who was running ME i think ill just add some ram if i can find some second hand pc100 sdram
i run xp on a pentium 166 /w 96 mb or ram, and an old ass big foot drive (5.25"). And it runs fine for most parts to burn cd's, browse internet, etc.
I ran XP w/ 128mb ram and it was awful. Can't imagine 64
I run it on a PIII 500 with 128, and it's not unbearably slow, but I'm sure glad I don't have to use it
I run it on a PIII 500 with 448 megs of RAM and it's tolerable. I also run it on an Athlon XP 1500 running at 1800 speeds with 256 megs of RAM and it's great. I'd never consider using less than 256 though. If you're sick of winME and only have 64 megs, try NT 4.0 or maybe Windows 2000, though the latter would still be a bit of a resource hog with 64 megs. Maybe win98 SE wouldn't be a bad option, but I'd avoid XP without a real amount of RAM.
Why not put down 60 bucks and add 256MB?
I wouldn't recommend running it on 64. Your hard drive will be working very hard to handle the page file.
