Windows 7: What if the rams limitation was removed from x86?

16 Feb 2010   #11

Windows 10 Pro (x64)

Software cannot over come hardware limitations.
The hardware must be able to handle ranges above 32 bits.

Scan it with whatever makes you tik..
I would be prepared to completely reinstall windows if it doesn't work out. The 4 gig limit exists in part to maintain compatibility with hardware drivers that would have problems with memory addresses beyond 4gig. It's complicated (to put it mildly), but if you're interested have at look at this article about Physical Address Extension:

Let us know how it goes, and remember you can always just use 64 bit Windows and avoid messing with the OS.

If you want to use more RAM, just go to 64 bit and you can sit there knowing you can potentially run up to something like 2EBs of RAM.

Well, not with Windows as they put their own memory limits on for 64bit.

I already said that I won't use the patch, no worries and thank you all for your inputs :).

I guess it was all hoax.
