    Why is windows only using 2.17GB of the installed 8GB? Does the 32 bit version only support 2GB? It's been a while since I played around with windows settings so any help is appreciated.

    This is a bootcamp installation.

    the 32bit only supports up to 4gb, but after subtract ram needed for the GPU and other minor over head stuff, you're left with that.

    OK, thank you! Glad I asked rather than waste time screwing around with it.
