Hi,

please verify you set the "PAE" option in your boot.ini, otherwise a 32bit system is not able to handle more than 4GB of RAM.

kind regards

Press Start - Run, type in "msconfig" press enter.

The sys configuration utility should open, switch to the "BOOT.INI" tab and check the last row (starting with something like "multi()disk(0)...."
at the end there should be the switch "/PAE"
if this is not true do the following:

1. right click "my computer" - select properties
2. select the advanced tab
3. click settings under "startup and recovery"
4. press "edit"
5. add the /PAE switch at the end of the last row.

Afterwards save the file and confirm your changes. To apply this finally you have to restart the server.


kind regards
Markus
