4gb ram with Vista 64 installation.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am planning on getting a new CPU/Mobo, so I will have to reinstall Vista 64. My only concern is this: Will I still have to download that patch to be able to have 4gb of ram to work with the fresh installation? I remember when I first was installing the OS, I had to leave 2gigs of ram in, apply the patch, then put in the other 2gigs of ram. Will I still have to do that when I reinstall? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If it had that problem the first time, and this is the same disc, you will. You will be starting from ground zero again. But, I would just install with two gigs and then put in the other two after you let windows update do its thing.

What was this problem as I think I am getting some weird issues with my 4gb of ram

How long does a restart of vista usually take? I get 1min 50 seconds

Yeah, installing Vista x64 with 2gb is a must, never got it to work with 4gb.

Like they said you must install Vista 64bit with 2GB of ram until you get up to SP1 or your disk includes SP1.

Well, if you installed Vista with 4gb of ram, it would give you and error and BSOD. My restarts usually take about a minute or so.

Anyways, thanks for all the help everyone one! Rep will be distributed!
