    You will not have the option to install this if you do not have 3 Gigs in.

    Have you tried going to http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/929777 and saving the file to your box, removing the RAM, then applying the fix?
  2. You have to install the update with less than 3gigs in. Otherwise it won't work. Yes its stupid, but then again who wrote this OS?
  3. Near as I can make out, the update is two years old. Smells like obsolescence to me.
  4. I have the same problem with the update. I re-installed Vista Home edition for the second time and it still won't update. I realize that it is old and obsolete but my computer will not stay in hibernation or sleep for more than 5 minutes now. I do not know if there is any coorelation but everything works fine except that. Does anyone else have this problem?
