Can I Install Windows XP Professional, Vista, or Windows 7 On My Netbook?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Windows Installation


Samsung netbooks meet the minimum hardware requirements of Windows XP Professional Edition, and all available drivers and software will work for both Professional and Home Editions of Windows XP. Therefore, Windows XP Professional Edition can safely be installed on your netbook.

We recommend against installing Windows Vista on your netbooks. While Samsung netbooks meet the hardware requirements (with the exception of an optical disc drive) to install and run Windows Vista, Samsung does not provide any Vista compatible device drivers for netbooks.

Samsung netbooks meet the minimum hardware requirements of Windows 7, and all available drivers and software will work for all versions of Windows 7. Therefore, Windows 7 can safely be installed on your netbook.

Important:

• Samsung netbooks have 32-bit processors. Samsung does not recommend installing a 64-bit operating system or running 64-bit applications on a Samsung netbooks, as they likely will not work. Samsung does not supply drivers or technical support for any 64-bit operating systems.

• The NC20 has a 64-bit processor. You can install a 64-bit operating system and 64-bit applications on the NC20. However, Samsung only supplies drivers for Windows XP and Windows 7, 32-bit operating system.
