    I have a strange thing going on and wondering if anyone has seen this before.

    I have a 2012 base 13" MBP with 4GB ram, but in 32-bit Windows 7 boot camp I am only seeing 2.25 gb of ram?

    Planning on getting Win 7 64-bit soon, but this was a free version of 7 32-bit I am using?

    32bit windows does support 4GB of ram, but that also includes all the system overheads including graphics memory. Even a 4GB native windows laptop using 32bit windows will only see about 3GB, so given the nature of the MBP 2.25 sounds about right. With 64bit, all the resources will be available to you.
