Hey guys, yes you read the title correctly. This isn't anything to go crazy about, I know it's not ideal but I want to see how well Windows 8 runs with 256mb of RAM first hand. I know it's possible due to the success stories I've seen people write posts about. Someone apparently was able to boot it with a measly 64mb of ram successfully. As seen here: "http://news.softpedia.com/news/RAMorexic-Windows-8-Runs-on-64MB-of-Memory-226418.shtml" I want to breathe life into my old XP machine. I know it' actually a pretty common hack to get Windows 7 to run on such low specs, but now I want to try it with it's younger brother. The way people have been installing Windows 7 on less than perfect specs from what I've seen is by editing the winsetup.dll file in Hex Editor and changing the values of a certain row from "77 07 3D 78 01" to "E9 04 00 00 00" As seen here: "http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/20967-install-windows-7-computer-less-than-512mb-ram.html" But the Windows 8 winsetup.dll is different so the method above doesn't work becasue "77 07 3D 78 01" doesn't exist. My question is what anyone might know what values would be needed to change in order to make this work. Before I get anyone trying to tell me it's not worth it, trust me, I'm aware. I'm just a techy who wants to see what he can do with the hardware he has available. I know it's possible. I want to do it myself. Thanks!
