I don't believe this is true.
I am running 16GB on Home Premium right now.
I believe the limit for Home Premium is 16GB.

My apologies, I should have confirmed (I usually post the same sheet gulls posted - shame on me!). I've corrected my post.

Looking at your SF profile specs (Ult x64), I think you'll be alright. It's not only the OS, but the Mobo must be able to address the available memory. Is there any way you could borrow memory to test it out before spending money?

As MagusMagnus said I suppose there's no real harm in attempting it, but definitely check the return policy and save the receipt.
