I've read a report or two or users having problems booting into their Windows partition after installing 8GB of memory (I know Windows won't recognize all 8GB).

Does anyone have any first hand experience with this, and possibly some fixes?

I'll be installing 8GB in mine next week, and I'd like it to go as smoothly as possible!

Where Judas lost it's boots.
I don't really remember but it should recognize from 3 to 3,5 gigs of ram. 64 bits is the way to go since microsoft limited the max ram on 32 bits versions of windows. I think there's an patch but that's risky.
