Re: Xp install on a ubuntu mini 9 - 01-03-2009, 01:20 AM
I've got an NLited XP Pro (with SP3 and updates) install with a bunch of software (including Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator) and only 2.9 gigs of the SSD has been used.
I had to disable hibernation and the pagefile to do that . If you don't have much ram, that could potentially cause some problems, but I've had no problems with 2gb of ram (a $20 upgrade). I also streamlined the slim drivers into my windows installation (which I did from a thumb drive).
You could even install some of your applications on the SD card (although they'll probably run a little slower) and use some portable apps.
It'll be tight, but you can definitely do it.
