    So I just installed Windows 7 32-Bit via Bootcamp, and when I check my computers properties, it tells me that I have 4GB of RAM installed but only 2.17 is usable. I know that Windows 7 32 supports up to 4GBs of RAM, so is there any reason it's doing this? Any help appreciated!

    The RAM is shared with your video card and any other hardware so you lose some of the physical 4 GB right off the top.
