This question already has an answer here:
This will be only for testing and developing. I have a 100 GB DB I am working on and need a sanbox envorinment. The only hardware I have is a desktop with 3GB and 32bit. I am able to install SQL 2008 Ent 32-bit (trial) on XP with no issues. Will there be any problems starting the service once I get the large DB restored?
