According to Microsoft’s configuration requirements, the Windows 10 32-bit version requires a minimum of 1GB of memory to run, but some people do not believe, Twitter blogger @0xN0ri on the challenge, and finally successfully pressed to 128MB. The 16-year-old uses a Dell Inspiron 3670 notebook with a Core i5-8400 processor and an operating system for Arch Linux.
On top of it, install the Windows 10 v1909 32-bit version through the Oracle VM virtual machine, assign a single processor core, during which the system does not mask any services or modify any system settings.
Start with 512MB of memory, everything works, Windows 10 is installed and up and running, of course, speed and performance don’t expect too much.
Next, 256MB of memory was successfully managed.
Surprisingly, 192MB is no problem, Windows 10 is up!
But at this time, the system started up took about 3 minutes, the response is very slow, can barely open the task manager, CMD command line window, resource manager, the remaining memory is only poor Baba 15MB, and the page file reached about 2.8GB.
7200 turn mechanical hard drive should also be a drag, but I believe that even if the SSD, not much.
By continuing to reduce the memory to 128MB, it will completely surrender, and Windows 10 will start directly blue screen.
Then add the memory slightly to 140MB, Windows 10 can start, but the UI user interface can not load, LogonUI.exe directly reported the error.
