✔ Best Answer
The size of a typical DVD is close to 4.7G but the iso image may be around 2.8G.

Contact your school for ways to get a student copy if one exists.

Hang up and live.

Do you mean RAM, hard disk space or something else?
If you mean HD space then MS say 16GB, although you would need more than that for to do anything else but run Windows itself.

I don't know of a student version myself.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Make sure that your system can run Windows 7 first by going to the Windows 7 site and running compatibility app.
If you have only 512MB memory, you have the minimum for XP (XP runs better with 1GB) but the 32bit version of Windows 7 requires a minimum of 1GB but runs better on 2GB or more and the 64bit version will run on 3BG bit runs much better on 4GB or more or memory.
Aside from memory, availability of drivers for your hardware is the next stumbling block. You must make sure that they are available and it is advisable to download them ahead of time onto a flash drive or CD for installing when they are needed. If your issue is only the video, sound, or NIC driver, you can purchase these as plug in cards and work around it that way.
Windows 7 is all about multitasking so for this reason, I recommend a dual core CPU of reasonable speed. If your system is very old, you may actually be better off staying with XP.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
