PAE Ram question


I have a ML350G6 with 12Gb RAM. I have enabled PAE but the task manager still only sees 4GB. Insight Manager reports 12Gb, 6 for each processor. Is the task manager correct? or have i missed something?

Re: PAE Ram question

PAE only works with PAE enabled apps. Not too many exist. If you want to use 12GB, you need to install a x64 OS like Windows 2003 R2 x64 or 2008 R2 x64. 32-bit OS will still be limited to 4GB.
