Hi there do this -> Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor
It will determine if your PC can run W7.

Download and run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor to see if your PC is ready for Windows 7. It scans your hardware, devices, and installed programs for known compatibility issues, gives you guidance on how to resolve potential issues found, and recommends what to do before you upgrade.

Hi karthik_88,

Your PC will definitely run Windows 7 without issues. I have it installed in my old PC which also has Pentium 4 and 2GB RAM and it runs very well.

Yes, it is compatible, and the official CPU requirement for Win7 32-bit is simply a x86 CPU clocked at 1 Ghz or above.

About Windows 7 64-bit, it depends on model of Pentium 4 : first models don't support x86-64 instructions but the newer models fully support them.

The P4 is not much of the problem,

it would be the mobo and the limited drivers support for the W7.
