Not sure if you can run W/7 with 512mb.

done it before loads of times but tht was with a version tht i downloaded of the internet called tiny7 rev01 and it worked like a treat apart from the fact tht printer wernt suported becuase they removed printer support and i dont like ultimate theres not many things i need on it

Why would anyone want to do this with prices of RAM so low? I can understand for a netbook or low-spec PC perhaps, but definitely not for a gaming PC. G

it isnt a gaming pc it is a low spec pc with intel celeron d 3.06ghz and i dont usualyy play games i was just testin dem out and anywayz dis aint ma primary pc tht is a intel I7 quad core 8gb ram machine i jus wanted to make use of this and vista sukzz and i like the features of widnows 7

Even without going to the extreme that the OP wants to go to it is fairly straightforward to load W7 32 bit onto a machine running 512MB of Ram.
Hexediting a dll on the install iso removes the MS RAM prohibition and off you go.

buteman can u please explain in detail of the dll il have to edit and wat part of the dll to edit and also which software to use

I was reading that Intel i6 and i7 stopped shipping other day. think they have a problem with the chips
