I have 12 gig ram on my pc but only see 8 listed in Win 7 even with dxdiag. which is odd or isnt it?
i already posted about this in your other thread.
Also if you have the 'Home Basic' edition it will not see more than 8GB. You need at least Premium to go over 8GB.
damn, good point. i always forget about that.
* Starter: 8GB
* Home Basic: 8GB
* Home Premium: 16GB
* Professional: 192GB
* Enterprise: 192GB
* Ultimate: 192GB
I think if you have more than 8GB with Home Basic it will still see the 12GB, but will list it as 12GB(8GB Usable).
Starter is 1GB if I remeber correctly
There is no point even if it can install 8GB, Win 7 Starter is 32-bit only.
It is only for Netbooks anyways.
I knew I should have posted the link: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa366778(VS.85).aspx
Starter: 2GB (1GB if you're talking about Vista).
And they didn't list N/A under Win7 Starter 64-bit which leads me to believe there is a 64-bit Starter version. Once again, there is no 64-bit Starter version--when you're talking about Vista.
The 64-bit Win 7 Starter might exist(ed), but I have yet to see a single Netbook with that pre-installed
If the limit is still 2GB by default... I don't see any gain for using the 64-bit version either.
Technet doesn't list a windows 7 x64 starter so I doubt there is a 64 bit edition.
Yeah that's what Wiki says. Odd, this support page should say NA under 64-bit for Win 7 Starter.
What would be the point of making 64bit Starter edition where even 32bit one has really serious limitations that would make absolutelly no sense in 64bit version.
Why are we talking about Starter edition?
Home Basic DOES have a 64-bit version, but only supports 8GB of memory. But as I said before, I believe it still sees all your RAM, but lists it as 12GB(8GB Usable).
starter may have came up from the stuff i copy pasted.
the OP hasnt come back, so we dont know what OS he has
Ok i have a win 7 Ultimate from Microsoft. Got it as part of a promo to promote win 7 so its a signature edition to boot
