The motherboard manual also has this priceless comment: "You must install at least one module in any of the two slots."


Or you could wait for Windows 8 Starter, which might have a 0GB memory limit Wink

There is a PAE mode.

I'm not sure how M$ has implemented PAE in Windows 7, but a PAE kernel was also included in Windows XP, but only for data execution prevention (DEP)... it didn't allow you to access more than 4GB of memory.
