It will install and run. The only question I have is the following: what are the user requirements :) As it will run well on this machine depending on the amount of people connecting to it :)

Also 500GB disk space, are you planning to store the SQL databases there as well?

Only about 20 - 25 users will be using it. 500GB is more than enough storage for now & even 10 years from now. The database will be on this SP server, no seperate SQL server.

Will run just fine. With the amount of users there is not a real problem. Just make sure you do not forget a good backup strategy :-)
