Microsoft recently released Windows 7 RC to public. But, before installing some users may want to know whether their PC/Laptop is compatible with Windows 7’s Hardware requirements.

Before installing Windows 7, users can use Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor Рa free software that will  examine your computers processor, memory, storage, graphics capabilities. It will then identify known compatibility issues with installed software and devices and provides tips on how to resolve those issues if possible.

The minimum Hardware requirements for Windows 7 RC are:

  • 1 GHz or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 GB RAM (32-bit) / 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available disk space (32-bit) / 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics processor with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

Only PCs with Windows Vista can be upgraded to Windows 7. Remember Windows XP users are required to do a clean install of the Windows 7 RC as well as the final product. If you are running Windows XP and do not have .NET Framework 2.0 yet, you will be asked to download and install it.

Download Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor Beta (English only). Remember to plug in any USB devices, and external devices like  printers, external hard drives, scanners that need to be tested.
