Is 80 Gig HD big enough to install Win7

Specs: Windows Vista, 2.834 GHz / 3326 MB
I plan on installing Windows7 on a single partition on 80 Gig HD. Then I want to clone it onto another same model 80 Gig HD with Acronis True Image. Can anyone see where I would need a larger drive for the OS only? TIA

The OS is fine, just barely.

You just can't install programs where you want to sometimes and then you might be in need of more room.

Since you have an image then you should be ok if you have to start over.
