Windows 7: Works fine with 2gb but doesnt work at all with 4gb?

Works fine with 2gb but doesnt work at all with 4gb?

hi,

After two days of trying to install 7 pro 64. I worked out that by removing 2gb of ram I was able to install 7 without any problems. Before it would take hours and then eventually give up. If i try to add the other 2gb stick of ram it hangs at the windows logo.

Ive tried 7 32 bit and that worked fine with 4gb. Also vista 64 bit and that was fine also.

Any suggestions?

2.4ghz dual core, corsair ram, asus pn532 something, 1tb sata

You're welcome. Sorry if I sounded rude. I only meant to point out that this has been discussed a lot, so many people are apparently having the same problem as you.

I will be installing W7 Home 32-bit. Is there also "more than 2 gig" issue with the 32-bit or is it only 64?

I think most people who experience this problem have 64-bit Windows.

However with 32-bit Windows you will not be able to use more than about 3GB (or a little more but not the full 4GB). You might already be aware of that because XP is the same way.
