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?

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.;)
