This is a slimmed down version of the Microsoft Windows 7 Beta 1 (build 6.1.7000).
- It has a lower resource consumption than the full version, using just over 300Mb main memory when idle* - less than Windows XP SP3!
- This solution is ideal for installation on Netbooks, such as the EeePC or MSi Wind. Total install size is just under 5Gbs, making it much more feasible than Vista.
- The following has been deemed unnecessary and stripped out:
* Speech & Native Language Support.
* All additional languages.
* Inbox & Premium Inbox games.
* Windows Media Centre.
* Music & Video samples.
* Windows Search.
* Tablet PC features.
- Please note that this is 32-bit English ONLY version. Not recommended as a working OS, as it is still beta version, but it is still much more stable than prior builds (e.g. 6801).
- PlusPatch by Orbit30 is included in the .ISO file under the /crack folder - run this with Administrative privileges post installation.
- Please burn the ISO using Active@ ISO burner available FREE at, using a SLOW burn speed, ie 1x or 2x. If you are using a previous Windows 7 Build, I would NOT recommend performing an Upgrade - use Clean Installation!
- Installation was tested in a virtualised environment under VMware Workstation - installation was under 30 minutes and no problems were encountered.
*With Windows Aero disabled.
