Hi,
been having a problem with my iMac not having all the memory available in windows only!
i have 32gb memory installed and it shows up just fine in sierra but not in windows 10
i tried that mschonfig trick i read about online i reseated the memory but it's still not giving me more then 2.something gb available memory out of 32gb.
here are some pictures of my setup in sierra where the memory shows up just fine.
sorry i thought i had a picture of the available memory in windows, but i guess i don't.

It sounds like you've installed a 32-bit version of Windows. You need 64-bit Windows to access that memory.

It's 64bit home addition, I have professional upgrade but I formatted computer to check if that will fix my problem but it didn't.

[doublepost=1475006530][/doublepost]windows finds the memory but it's hardware reserved.
I have all the latest bootcamp drivers installed. Check out this photo.
Sorry for the unclear pic, I have to use the front facing camera to get a smaller mb picture.
