Windows 7: windows 7 32 0R 64

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

I see that mentioned a lot, but I have yet to come across an OEM or homebrew system that I've had to edit a BIOS setting to allow all 4 GB to be used. I'm not saying it doesn't exist...just that it doesn't seem to be as prevalent an issue as some make it seem.

Agreed. It's almost always the PCI Express controller or PCI-E cards taking a reservation, or a reservation for the video card or allocations for an onboard video chipset. It's pretty rare nowadays to have to make any changes to get more memory, although it is probably still somewhat true on older hardware.
