Does NT have a memory limitation

By Tejota ·
I am running NT4.0/spk6a on a Netfinity 7100 server with quad processors. I have 4 1gb memory modules, and 4 64mb memory modules. When booting up, the hardware counts all the memory, but once NT starts, it only sees the 4 gb of memory from the 4 1gb modules. Is there a patch or a registry edit that needs to be done in order to exceed this 4gb memory limitation that I'm running into?

Thanks....TJ

Check your documentation on the server I think you'll find that 4gb is the most the motherboard can address.

Hi,

NT 4.0 Server supports up to 4GB RAM, not 4.2 GB. This is an limit per design.
NT 4.0 Enterprise supports up to 8 GB RAM,some implementions had 16 or even 32GB RAM. Yes there is an uprade possibilty from NT4.0 Server to the Enterprise Version, like
Bills Says "The most time it works".
I would prefer an new fresh installation then an upgrade !
