    Hi I want to play star wars TOR on my Mac but you need windows. I have a 160 gb ssd and was wondering what is the smallest partition I could have to run windows and the game? I will only be using windows to play the game.

    Thanks

    That would depend on the version of Windows you plan on installing and the size of the game itself.

    Somewhere between 20-25GB should be good, though I'm not sure about that specific game.

    8.66gb on a Windows 7 install. I'm with techguy though, I'd give it 20-25 minimum given pagefile and patches + game install.

    If you are talking win 7 and want to have a maintainable useable system I personally would not go under 40/50 gb minimum. My dual boot system has 80 gb for win 7 but is based on a 256 gb sad.

    25GB is about as low as you can go under Vista, or 7

    XP about 10Gb, but why use XP?
