Can a pentium d run windows 7

Hello,
I bought windows 7 32 bit to run on my pentium 4.the microsoft page said it could run it. when i put it in, it took 4 hours to install. the rate was 2.4 GHz. I now dont trust that page. I'm upgrading to a pentium d running at 3GHz. I would like to hear from people running or have used a pentium d. Please help

Re: Can a pentium d run windows 7

Windows 7 should run fairly decent in a Pentium 4 machine. How much RAM do you have? And I don't think upgrading to a Pentium D is going to do any good.

Re: Can a pentium d run windows 7

4 hours on a single core processor sounds about average.
upgrading to a pentium d will shave off maybe 4-5 minutes.
-
for proper use of win7, have a dual core processor and 2 gig ram
-
if you can't afford it, stick to xp. better a working old o/s than a new uselessly slow o/s

I run Windows 7 Ultimate on a Celeron D single core with 2 gb of RAM it's runs fine. But a dual core is the best way to go Windows 7 was designed for dual core cpu's or better. Also a PCIE video card wouldn't hurt either.

I agree with what's been said above. Either switch (back) to XP, or get a DC CPU with 2+ GB of RAM.
