System specifications may vary depending on configurations. Set it up starting from 1 GB of system memory (RAM), 128 MB of video RAM (or shared system memory) and DVD-ROM drive to meet Windows Vista® Premium Ready PC requirements, or 512 MB of RAM to meet Window Vista® Capable PC requirements.

Please make sure the power cable/AC adapter (for selected models) is properly plugged into the computer and the power outlet. The first-time startup and setup for Windows Vista® takes about 30 minutes. Do not power-off or reset your desktop during the startup/setup process.
