It takes 512 MB of RAM to install Windows 7, which are 16 GB large. Try it in a virtual machine, I distinctly remember I did it (installed Firefox 43 on a virtual machine with around 150 MB of RAM running Windows XP) without running into problems.
I'm not talking about just installing it, I'm talking about actually using it.

that's what I'd expect from an unusable operating system.
