Using more than 3GB on XP SP2

    I've got 4GB of RAM on one system. On Vista 64bit I've no problems accesing them, but on XP SP2 32bit, as usual, only 3GB are visible. I was wondering, would installing 7-max under XP give me access to the 4th gbyte as well to play with using "run with 7-max" ?

      I have not tested it with big RAM. But it must work. Also you still will have 3 GB limit per one application. But you will be able to run 4 applications with 1 GB per application.
      You must use 7-max 4.01. And read FAQ about SP2:

      Unfortunately my XP won't boot in 7-max mode. I'll play with it a bit more later today and if still no luck, then I'll just get used to having 1GB wasted in XP until I find another solution.

        - Unfortunately my XP won't boot in 7-max mode.

        What exactly do you mean?
        1) it hangs at booting ?
        2) it boots but 7-max doesn't work?

      It hangs at boot time. I haven't managed to test it a bit more, unfortunately.
