Kind of an awkward thread title, but...

My main OS on this computer is Vista 64-bit, so I am able to use all 8 GB of RAM on this machine. However, for a minority of programs that I use occasionally that aren't Vista compatible, I was going to set up an XP Pro 32-bit dual boot on this computer. I know that it won't recognize RAM past 4 GB, but will XP have any problems with more than 4 GB of RAM installed on my computer, or will it just ignore it peacefully?

Are there any other issues with an XP SP2 disc installing/running on newer computers?

Thanks...

Thanks for your response. The XP dual boot installed perfectly.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
