16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit) and that is without all the updates
that are need to keep going why Microsoft not tell you that is be beyond me
i have an computer running xp and it needs 16gb with office and all the updates not including flash java and so on ...
now can some one tell me how big of a hard drive i would need to run window 7 with all the updates and service packs and all
update thanks all i see now it will take 100gb hard-drive to update the computer not what is on Microsoft web site http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/system-requirements
80gb will work but it is to small to have room for just windows 7 and windows 8 is worse then that
80 gb windows 7 i have 25.5 gb on this computer and it works fine and i now from the past it depends on the manufacturers of the drive and how windows runs on them some have less compression then others
