    1. It depends on your PC configuration
    2. I think this is the wrong forum to post this thread.

    That's still doesn't help at all.

    What processor speed, size of RAM, type of video-card, size and speed HDD (and amount of HDD space left)?

    the long awaited answer is:

    "yes"

    How to backup the DVD? I'll send you a link. We're not allowed to discuss it here.

    You may need some additional software too.
