I thought I'd give Windows 7 a go on my Mini 9. I've read about people not being able to install Windows 7 on an 8GB SSD
. I thought why?? Surely Windows 7 can't be THAT big. So I hit myself up with a Windows 7 Pro ISO from that stuent offer thingy they do. Wrote the iso to USB and hey presto, it installed.
The install originally left around 300MB to 700MB of free space. However, I have about 1.2GB free space currently, which is more than enough for me on my Mini 9. This was achieved doing all the "free space tweaks".
No errors, no mess. Just a smooth installation.
