    How much disk space does a Win 8 Pro 32-bit install takes?


    I would like to try Windows 8 Pro on my PC, I've currently installed Windows 7 Ultimate (32-bit) with SP1 on my PC which takes about 7.8 gigs of disk space. So, my question is that how much disk space does a normal clean installation of Windows 8 Pro (32-bit) takes?

    This read will get you in the ballpark. Those giving space recommendations typically deal with space for "just" win8--not mentioning pro specifically.

    Thanks for the advices! I am now running Windows 8 Pro, and I was surprised to see that it takes about 6 GB of disk space, which is very low as compared to that of Windows 7 SP1. I love Win 8 more than win 7 becuz of the new and exciting feature set in win 8.

    If You Want my opinion then you should go for Windows 8 Pro X64 because it has Hyper-V Support which is not in the 32-bit version
    But As you have 1GB RAM so you have done right.
    I would advice you to upgrade your RAM to 8GB and install the 64-Bit version Its Awesome.
