I have an i5-8400 with 16 GIGS of Ram.

6 cores, 6 threads

The work I do on the guest is minimal and requires very little ressources.

Is it ok to set the Guest OS at 1 core and 4 gigs of RAM?

Will it crash things?

I'm not quite sure why you're asking us a Windows support question: regardless of the answer we give, that answer can't be definitive.

But no, Windows generally will not crash if you install it on a single core PC. Performance however will be terrible (laggy) by modern standards. Also your allocation of 4GB of RAM seems too high for a low resource, as that is probably around half the available RAM on your 16GB installed RAM host.

I would assign 2 cores, 2GB RAM, 128MB graphics RAM.
