    What is the maximum amount of memory windows 2000 professional can handle. I know the minumim is 64 that ms requires, I have looked into many books and everyone lists the min but no one mentions the max and it appears on my practice exam.

    Thank you
    James

      The max is 4GB. Located this in MS Knowledge Base Article Q256070.

        Thank you rob I was at wits end and also choosing the wrong answer on my tests with the 2gig answer.

      For Home use I think 256 is also ideal.
      But for the windows 2000 server family it would not be enough.
      so be wise to use your memory in windows 2000 family.

        I knew 256 was not nearly enough to be the maximum I am running one gig on my system now. Thanks for the effort.

      Answer #1 is correct. The reason no one mentions the maximum is that, as a practical matter, it’s a hardware limitation rather than software. I have yet to find a workstation motherboard that supports 4gig of RAM. And, of course, if you can afford to run W2K Pro on a server hardware architecture that does support 4gig of RAM, you’re in another world entirely.

        Thank you for backing up the answer rob gave me it was helpful and an interesting point. In most books with win2kpro they only mention the min.
