    Storage space, I really don't remember the exact number, I've installed this SKU on 3 of my home PCs already.

    If I had to guess I probably go with around ~16GBs. RAM usage really depends on how many stuff you disable (Defender, OneDrive, etc), at stock it takes around ~900 MBs.

    I just clean installed Windows 10 Pro default install on Acer Aspire One NetBook KAV50. It has a 1.6 Atom processor, and 1 gb of ram. The hdd is much bigger than yours, but I don't think it uses much space. It works pretty well, but I am going to upgrade it to 2gb RAM.

    Loading compressed files is even faster if your CPU is enough fast to uncompress files into RAM faster than a SSD/HDD can transfer (limiting the bandwidth), simply because there is less data to transfer.

    something that is a smaller .iso, uses less ram, less HD space and boots faster than regular Win 10,

    Nope, I tested only with windows 8.1 and make my own Windows lite version. It works perfect! I'll test Win 10 version in the next days

    Hello

    @WindowsBrownie You may find these versions across the Web, or create one yourself, but you will never find them here on MDL as HomeBrew (= Non-Original) ISOs are forbidden
    Using an appropriate combinaison of words may lead you to what you're searching :)

    As I wrote in Post #2, use Windows 10 Enterprise N LTSB and your much below 10GB. You could further down by compressing the OS and disable/uninstalling some options and it will also boost the OS a bit!

    Not everyone likes to use "illegal" activated Windows or has the money for Enterprise, especially when you can use a legal Pro/Home for free after upgrading.

    Meanwhile, the retail activation from upgrade is a real joke : no reactivation possible when activation is off (because of a hardware change). That has been tested.
    If it is not an incentive in the hacking, what is it?
