✔ Best Answer
Looking at the specs, I would say no. You might be able to install a lightweight version of Linux but I think Vista/Win7 or beyond is out.

Given the specs that riider found (and assuming you've maxed-out the RAM), it might be possible---but you'd have very little fun running any version of Windows that "just barely" meets Microsoft's minimum requirements:
