How to Install Windows 7 on PC

If you want to install a clean Windows 7 on the computer you just bought or the computer you’re using, you first need an ISO file. After you download the ISO file to your computer, you need to prepare a setup media.

Check the minimum system requirements before starting it;

  • 32-Bit / 64-Bit Processor with 1 GHz or faster
  • 1 GB RAM for 32-Bit / 2 GB RAM for 64-Bit is sufficient.
  • 16GB HDD Space for 32-Bit / 20GB HDD Space for 64-Bit
  • A DirectX 9 Graphics Card with WDDM 1.0 or higher is sufficient.

How to Run Windows 7 without using a CD/DVD

With the development of technology, no new Windows CD/DVD installation media is now available in the box contents of newly sold computers. When you purchase a new computer, the Windows operating system installed on the computer comes licensed.

If you want to install a clean Windows operating system on your new computer, you can download the ISO file from any source on the Internet and burn to a DVD media or a Bootable Flash Memory.

Also, if you want to install this operating system on Windows 10, you must configure the installation as Dual Boot. In short, you can create a new Partition on the HDD and install it on Windows 10.

If you just want to try Win 7 for a short time, you can use virtualization programs such as VMware, VirtualBox or Hyper-V.

You can also select the BIOS or UEFI installation type for installation in the Partition Scheme and Target System Type.
