I am using old p3(933 mhz) processor with VIA motherborad and 512+256 ram.
Is it possible to install windows 7?

I think it's possible but why don't you try some older version?

I am using windows xp and Linux ubuntu as dual. Both are working fine.
To know the maximum capability of p3 processor i have asked.

Don't waste a good operating system on a tired system. Not enough RAM and not enough cpu imo.

I didnt expect this kind of comments.

I guess it depends on what you mean by "run". You may be able to get it to boot to the initial desktop, but right away Windows 7 will disable most of the display features (aero UI) because of not enough system resources.

I wouldnt expect it to handle launching and running applications well as it will already be mostly taxed on RAM and CPU processes to just boot into the Win 7 env. I admit I am intrigued by the idea, I guess you wont know until you try. And if you do try, let us know how you make out.
