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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
