  • Hello

    32bit limits addressable ram to 4gb max. Its not the motherbd or the cpu but the OS that is the limiting factor

    also check this as well

  • Hi,

    You have the option to use any ram above 4gb as something else such as a ram drive though.

    Plus your key is valid for the 32bit or 64bit install if you don’t mind reinstalling everything as there is no other migration path for going from 32bit to 64bit.

    Best Regards,
